Default Low Temp Primer?

Trying to finish up some things outside and I have finish paint that is good down to 35 F,but most of the primers I see want 50.With highs in the low 40's and freezing temps overnight I might be done for the season.Anyone know a good low temp primer?Thanks.

Leave it. Most primers need a topcoat. Im assuming that you were going to prime now, finish later? If thats the case, just leave it and prep/finish in the spring.

Was hoping to get the whole job done.Very little priming left to do.I understand a primer left uncoated over the winter is not ideal.

Duration is 35. Ask SW for the proper primer. They gotta have one.

So that's what happens when you push the limits of the specs?I really tried to talk my client out of doing this job now.He understands there is no guarantee on the work.

If the finish color is light Jon youll be okay,anything that is somewhat dark will fog out from the overnight moisture.At best its a crap shoot!
