Tint the sealer and it will turn the epoxy pink, which is close and a perfect start for easy coverage.

Some companies make a red sealer that looks about like red primer. I personally don't like to use a light colored sealer. If you have any areas with thin coverage, under direct sunlight, the light base will make them more obvious.

I use Sherwin Williams sealers, which come in gray... red... and tintable. Usually the tintable are too transparent for my liking.

your light grey will work just fine.

make sure you have enough base to go over it more than 3 times if need be.

Nason **** is like water and sometimes doesn't cover well

White is counter intuative but it really makes red pop..just shoot to full coverage and roll it out into the sun and do a walk around before you shoot the clear and you will be fine..
