I have some galvanized fence brackets that I want to use on some benches. Before construction I want to paint them black to match a table we have. I have been doing some research on how to do this so the paint will stand the test of time. From what I have seen the basic steps are as follows:
- Clean the metal with an acid (i.e. distilled white vinegar)
- Apply primer to the surface
- Paint using a latex based paint
Am I correct on this or did I miss something? Do I need a primer or can I do multiple coats of paint?
