Maybe we should take up a collection and send that guy a gallon of SPI epoxy primer so he can do it right.

I really don't think this Guy is worried about right or wrong, he is just trying to get this thing primered, and driving.
He is probably lucky to have this car, and to get it on the road.....PS just a hint probably has no air tools to lay the SPI down

He doesn't need air tools. Just a bamboo stick, a couple of empty coconut shells to mix and that paint brush and he's good to go.
