Please Note: A few customers have found when masking the model, and when removing the masking tape the primer peels off
To ensure this does not happen please read the following to ensure you correctly apply the product:-
The Issues are due to the Primer and Thinners in the jar Not being mixed correctly before applying to the model
If the primer content, which is thick and heavy sinks to the bottom of the jar, therefore if not stirred up fully, all you will be applying is basically Grey Thinners and NOT enough primer which should bite into the plastic and not peeling off
The Zero Primers do NOT have any ball bearing in the jars as 1 customer managed to shake it so hard they smashed the glass, so for safety reasons!
