Whilst im not too sure just what paint systems you guys in the states use - in UK we use two pack acrylic for excellent finishes, but beware, it must be used in a well vented area and the user must wear an oxygen mask as the fumes are dangerous. As for primers, it all depends on the surface that you are painting - if its a new panel then you can use any acrylic 2K wet on wet primer, however, if its a repaired panel you will need a high build primer - one that can be sanded prior to top coat. Practise makes perfect. Good luck.
