Primer color?

Ok so I need to paint my rear quarter and door on passenger side back to stock color, they're new, my car got hit, the ford factory color is SU or tropical green if you don't want to look it up, my question is, should I use a white primer or grey primer to achieve my desired color

Bad hit man. Hate it happened to you. I have always liked color urethane primer.

Well I actually bought it that way, the guy sold it for $900 because of that, it's worth so much more, so can't pass up deals like that

Use the grey primer, I work in a body shop and the painters prefer using that instead of white.

Are you gonna paint it or take it and have it done? If you have it done, they will take care of it. If you are gonna do it yourself, there is a pretty good lot to it. If you go to where you plan to buy the paint, they will give you what you need to make it turn out best. Get the spec sheets on the paint system you want to use and read them. The guys you buy it from will help you a lot. Gray primer is the way to go. There are primers, sealers, and primer/sealers.

Yeah, I'm doing it myself, I sprayed cars before, but it was only black, and black is pretty easy with the primer and base coat

Their are different types of primer, the grey is meant for painting and I think their is only one type of grey primer. The white primer isn't really meant for paint its used more if a rock guard or something like that is being sprayed on top of it. If you've done spraying before then use the same technique you used before, only difference is you are using a different color.

Thanks, yeah I wasn't really sure, since it's a brighter Green, I wasn't sure if I needed to use a white or a grey primer, like I said I only have sprayed cars with black, and you just use a black primer and black base under the clearcoat, very easy to do

You can spray black over gray primer as well. If you use an enamel paint, you won't even have to use a clear. Just don't use enamels with metallics.
