This week I tried a new primer from SW. It is Multipurpose Acrylic Alkyd, sticks to oil, dries like oil, water clean up.
I was putting Proclassic over oil painted trim, hence the need for an oil primer.

The new primer yellowed overnight on some of the doors and various spots on the trim. I had to re-prime with Problock. Finish coat of Proclassic looked great.

SW did have a multipurpose oil but my local doesn't carry it anymore. I suppose that leaves Problock as my only choice for oil primer, or a shellac primer.

Any other suggestions?

I like to use X-I-M UMA bonding primer, urethane modified acrylic. It will stick
to anything and it sands real easy. It's a little pricy $ 50.00 a gallon. The only thing I use oil for anymore is water stains or exterior cedar house.
