1969 camaro paint

hey guys i just picked up a 1969 camaro that is down to bare metal in spots. The doors the roof and the complete interior are all media blasted and most 95% of body work has been finished. i need to cover the bare metal so it will not rust should i just hit it with self etching primer? (spray gun) no rattle cans.lol or is there something else i should put on it?

Not if you are using SPI...that is one of the reasons I use it as it is much more economical not only monetarily but also requires less of my labor and time..Just shoot it all is what I do and then proceed at my leisure with the metal work..So no etching primer is required and only thing is having the car clean..
