Interesting...I've never given body work or even bare metal only one coat of primer. I was under the impression that even manufacturers recommend more than one coat of primer, that's why they recommend flash times between coats. Material build is a fine line and the most abused product in many shop is primer.
I'm interested and would like to understand, (I'm not saying your wrong), but when you prime on a show quality vehicle, you only give it one coat of primer, let it cure, block it and then another coat and block it and so on until you get the body straight enough for a show quality finish?
