1) Don't typically use it

2) Krylon (color depends on what I'm putting over it) or skip the primer and use a paint-primer combo

3) Most often, I hand paint using Testors enamel, but Krylon is my go-to spray paint

4) Usually Screws, but I've used JB weld, Gorilla epoxy and UV glue. Just depends on the build.

5) Sand wheels most times, but not every time

6) Rarely polish axles

7) I epoxy weights in, anything less leads to it coming loose. No to putty
