Cheap flat black paint that can be painted over properly later ?

a friend of mine is building his project car right now, which includes some panel swapping and rust repair.

for the summer he just wants to lay on a coat of satin black, and in a year or 2 the car will be getting massaged to perfection and then painted gloss black.

ive been trying to figure out the best satin black to use, but im not sure. Blitz black should apparently only be painted over w/ other john deere paints, and rustolium from walmart seams like a good way to get a real paint job to lift / craze on us

suggestions ?

Don't put cheap primer on the car, even if it's not close to being done. Spend the money to put a good epoxy primer on it. The thing about cheap primer is that it is porous, meaning water can get under and still cause rusting. If you use a good epoxy primer, you will have sealed the car and down the road in a year or so, you can also put bodywork over epoxy. I have been using a PPG epoxy primer and all bondo that needs to be done will stick to that primer. If you use a cheap primer, you will have to take it totally off before you spray good primer, or you will have problems with topcoats. Why not bite the bullet and put on the epoxy and not have to worry.

i have no intentions of using cheap primer, its an 80's car so its gonna need a coat or 2 or high build epoxy primer.

put im not a fan of leaving eposed primer, so im not about to have him do a flat / satin black primer and leave it at that. last person i know who did that had a HELL of a time sanding the primer down 2 years later.
