best advive for paint stages is:

RED OXIDE (stops rust)

Grey primer

Top coat

Laquer

the amount needed depends on the car and effect wanted.

time a nd prep is everything.

key in between coats etc...

good luck.

what you want is etch primer to go on the bear metal bits

some ici fastbuild primer (better than red oxide) comes in either grey or white depending on if the topcoat is a light or dark colour. leave to dry and just give a quick sand down with 800 wet and dry.

you topcoat colour in 2pk along with the hardener and thinners wear a mask ( air fed is highly recomened for this)

jobs a good'un leave well alone gor a week to harden
