67 El Camino Getting New Paint DIY project

Started project on my 1967 ElCamino and would like some input as to what you guys think as far as my plans;

Purchased a pretty straight car about 3 years ago. The last year or so I started noticing that there was some areas where the Bondo was beginning to crack.
and the paint is fading. Im assuming the paint has been on this care for about 10-12 years.
Fortunately over the last 15 years Ive been able to collect some pretty handy tools that have made my mechanic jobs much easier. Just want to point out how I find stuff. Last week at a local Swap meet I picked up a Porter Cable Random DA SAnder/Polisher and an older american made Air Sander/Buffer, with a a box full of 6 inch sanding disks and another box full of all sort of miscellanious grinding attachements, etc.. All for $50 cash.. I was planning on paying that much for the Sandpaper alone.
OK want to see what you guys opinion;

Im planning an pretty much sanding all the way down to the metal fiirst Im using;
- EverCoat MetalWorks Polyester Filler
- PCL EPOXY 2k Primer over metal
- SPI 2k Poly High Build Primer for Blocking
- HOK Metalic on bottom half and HOK Metajul on Top for Base ( Two Tone Car)
- SPI Poly Universal Clear (I heard great stuff and veru forgiving)

Using a DevilBiss 5 Gallong Compressor, No name brand 1.8 mm nozzzle Gun for Primers and a DeviBiss Finishline 1.3 for Base and Finishline 1.8 or 1.5 for Clear. Will be doing all the body work and sanding on my backyard drive way and and shooting in my very clean garage. Here is an idea of what I want to do. Sorry to whomever owns these pictures I believe I copied them from HottRodders.com or another car site.

I would go with SPI Epoxy primer. I recently switched from antoher brand I used in the past and I cant say enough great things about SPI in general. If they made every basecoat I needed I wouldnt have to go to anyone else for anything!


I know they call for a 1.4 tip with the universal so I would go with the 1.5.

5 gallon compressor?????
