You mean that the spray cans are not marked as primer any more? Well, they are still primer. If you mean no more white spray cans...I would doubt that very much. Not that it would bother me, GW spray paint is way over priced. Search around and you may find a competitors paint for less.

100%.... FALSE.

Despite being priced at about 4x what it's actually worth, and what you can get a comparable product for, GW is NOT taking away White from their spray lineup.

By Krylon Professional flat white. It is about $1.00 cheaper, but the nozzle has a metal needle valve and produces much finer atomization of the paint media.

You will love it, but it is still pricey.

Good to know.

I have been using Armor Coat, found at Canadian Tire. It's actually really good. But I will try the Krylon too.

When GW Canada raised their prices to $17 a can, I lost it. No more GW for me.

Armor Coat is $4.25.

Didn't I just buy a can a few months ago for eight... wow. That is a bit much. Of course non Hobby stores require ID to buy spray paint around here...

For those in the UK buy Halfords flat white car primer, for those overseas buy a decent auto body primer spray, normally cheaper, larger and better quality the the GW version.

DIY car stores have been my shopping for spray paint for years (I even get discount for bulk buys).

Like others have mentioned, even if GW did take away their white primer I wouldn't really care.

Seconded on the Halfords white primer, it's far superior to the GW stuff
