Help with paint questions

Hi, I have a few questions bout painting, I wanna do my own car, i will be spraying in my garage, I have some knowledge bout paints, but here is my questions, I took my car to a body shop to get the door handles removed and filled, just because i dont have access to a welder, the shop used high build laquer primer, i dint think much of it at the time but i wanna do a base coat clear coat finish, i will be using nason paint from dupont, can i seal the laquer with nason sealer, or can i just apply the base and it be ok, i will be painting it factory black, next , i have a urethane body kit, its like rubber, would i need to get a flexible primer? and last i have a fiber glass hood, its not primed, can you help me in the steps i need to paint it, sorry this is long, but any help would be great!!

Hiya Shavedaccord, I was going back through past posts and saw your paint questions unanswered and wanted to suggest
painting a section at a time since your going black. This way you'll get the feel easier and not be overwhelmed. If you paint just a door or fender at first and have a problem just let it dry a day or so,correct by sanding it flat again and fix while spraying the next panel. You'll have to cover the rest of the car to keep overspray off and you'll also need to cover painted sections as you go but you'll be a happy camper taking it slow and enjoying the process and be able to post back if anything gets outa hand. As for the flexible parts(bumpers) there are flex additives but they are not cure alls. Best way to handle bumpers is with adhesive promoters
and just enough paint/cleat to get the job done.

Have a peek a this black complete.

You can do it!
