How does auto air do as a basecoat for dipping?

I have seen a few posts about auto air and wicked, but wanted to ask a few questions. What primer do yall use on a synthetic gun stock before painting? Also, what is the dip window with auto air? Thank you

    Epoxy primer and as far as I know? There is no window on any water based paints...

    Awesome, should I use an adhesion promoter before the primer?

    With epoxy primer? I don't think you need to...that stuff sticks to dang near anything...

    Ok thank you, how long should I wait after applying the auto air to dip? And after 24 hours would I have to scuff it before dipping?

    We used a 2k urethane primer on some sanded plastic parts and it failed. Now we just hit everything w Prime Coatings PolyPro primer first just in case. That stuff works amazing.

    No need to scuff before dipping. As long as the paint is dry you can dip. With water based it can be 1/2 hour or a week later, as long as you don't get some contaminant on it in the meantime.
