first of all-- i can't believe that you used a laquer primer for what it sounds like (complete paint job), or should i say --who talked you into it ? this is 2011 , and a 2 component urathane would have been so much nicer for you to work with !
minimal shrinkage with excellent filling and sanding !
well it is what it is---soooooo lets get on with it--guide coat what you have -- then cut it all w/at least 320--you'll need a quart of inexpensive (polyvinal sealer-- single stage)two wet coats ,and tack in between--this is a non sanding sealer,and goes on a little like water-- so be carefull(if you do have to sand some small areas--use soapy water & 600 paper) final tack , and apply finish----

good luck......steven

believe me "blasterguy" i know how much sanding it takes to cut lacquer prime down ! it's just about double--now refering to the next page wear you purchased your paint--http://www.paintforcars.com/2k_primer.html--had this product been used== 3 wet coats--guide coat next day sand 75 to 80% with 180 grit dry--then re guidecoat, and finish off with 320 to 400 !
the lacquer prime is ok in some small areas , but on an overall it has a tendacy to hairline crack in a couple years---then you get to strip the whole car-cuz it's not the paint that cracks ! it's the lacquer primer ! your finish product of acrylic enamel is not going to hold a shine very long eather (not where you live) this is the reason they quit using these products in the factorys , and switched to the base / clear --these products have a greater hold out against the ultravilets from the sun--and YES ! there are also paint failures here , but they are still far superior to the acrylic's !! one of the other points to make is , you are using red--this is going to take at least 3 coats (theirs no lead in paint anymore, its 's just red dye) med to wet on first --wet on second, and wet on third ! what it looks like when your finished , is what it will look like the next morning
PS----i sure hope you have hardener for your paint !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

good luck .........steven
