Eastwood does sell a black primer which is very good, however I still recommend using the self-etching primer first. The under side of the chassis usually had body shutz undercoating applied. If you are going to body shutz the underside, I recommend performing the same process as the suspension components. You can even use POR-15 before you body schutz the underside.
