epoxy primer lacquer paint??

I got myself in a bind. I was never a painter only the sander and body man.
So very little experience with paints.
What I am working on is a 1990 nissan 240.
I have bent all the bars for a dom cage and redone alot of the floor pan.
So I have flash rust and raw steel with a little paint on the floor pan( wire brushed and a angle grinder)
I have thiese materials on hand Duplicolr wax grease remover cm-541,
all limco products lr-12 med reducer, lm410 normal clear hardner, lc 4100 clear coat, & about 20 gallons of r-m paint in quarts.
I would like to use sherwin williams epoxy primer MPN #AIP10016.
can I use this and spray the r-m paint for a basecoat.
for prep I have been told to wash the dom with dawn dish soap dry, rinse, use the grease remover wearing gloves after the dawn process.
I have seen people use a 3-1 water/vinegar mix for raw steel also.
I have no budget so im looking for a reasonable method to paint this car, but I also know you get what you pay for.
Thanks every one I never knew how bad lacqer paint was till I started researching for this project.
Most places on the net refferred to this forum for information, so here I am .

wow two days of surfing and I stumble on this thread so cool duplicolor paint over Epoxy primer?

So I went to the local r-m jobber today and discovered I am sitting on about 20 gallons of r-m diamont poly all in quarts.
No laquer here so I lucked up on my group buy early this summer.
Also grabbed some epoxy prime and reducer 3/4 gallon for $80.
So tommorrow I'll be prepn an painting.

That should work fine.
I'd warn against the vinegar/water mix though. I've used
full-strength vinegar to remove rust from bolts, and if you
let the vinegar evaporate the rust seems to accellerate.
The vinegar has to be neutralized and washed off completely
to prevent the rust from coming back.

A better plan would be to spray the epoxy primer directly
on the cleaned metal.

mo questions

ok so after sveral different jobs I am back on my car.
the epoxy I got was limco lp10 and limco la10 catalyst for a 4-1-1, now my question can I use masterpro 5531 basecoat reducer to thin/ dilute it to use less lp10 for more coverage in an engine bay and? I was thinking like 4 lp10 1 cat 1.5 reducer.
This is a track car/daily driver ill be shooting some rm diamont over it just to freshen it up. I will try to add pics in a few.
