Adhesion tends to be somewhere between terrible and non-existent, plus it will flash all day, depending on the top coats. I won't spend time and money just to create a problem....

I use primarily the SW line of primers. Any of them, interior or exterior. I like the coverage and build it gives with the second coat. I also notice more flaws as I put on the second coat of primer.
