I have noticed that the original black paint on my 850 commando frame was applied directly to the frame without any primer??? I have decided not to powder coat and instead use an acrylic enamel. My question is why was the original frame paint applied directly to the frame without any primer---- and--- I intend to use a primer before painting mine with the acrylic enamel. If I use a primer will my frame be more likely to chip from rocks etc. as opposed to not priming the frame and applying the acrylic enamel directly to the frame???????? Thanks for all the help.
