A friend just had his top sides done with Awgrip. Rolled and tipped. It looks very good however I watched it applied directly to the clean sanded gelcoat
. No Primer.
So I ask. IS PRIMER A MUST?
The cost to do his Catalina
387 was about the same as two good high end cut polish and wax. Seems to be a good long term alternative to annual detailing.

To go to all that effort and not use the paint
manufacturers primer is just asking for trouble.
If there is an issue, what do you think the first question the paint
manufacturer will ask?
Answer: Did you follow instructions?
Can you paint without primer? Yes
Will you have adhesion problems without primer? Maybe.
Should you use primer? If the manufacturer says to.
Do you have to use primer? Ya pays yer money
ya takes yer chances.
