Rattle can primer here. FWIW the primer is too easy to scuff off initially, so priming is my last step before riveting. Primer does seem to be much more durable on the already completed parts, but don't have a good feel for how long it takes for the primer to fully harden (weeks?)

Default Vans' Told Me....

Asked this very question (along with several others).

They said there is a mostly theoretical difference, that dimpling can be done after priming with no ill effect.
