Talk to your local PPG destributor. PPG makes rattle cans as well as a roll-on primer that would suit your needs. I beleive the roll on primer is SX-1060 I'm not posetive, any day to day shop workers out there care to second that or correct me?

dunno if you have an O'rylies auto parts in your neck of the woods but if you do they can put any paint you want in a spray-can. as for the bondo...
If its on thick I heat it up with a heatgun or a propane torch just to soften it a little, then use a putty knife..works like a charm...

I've said this before (and some don't agree!) but if you're just doing one small area, use rattle can primer and flat black spray paint - the el-cheap-o brand- and it will stay a long, long time. Then when you're ready to paint, just knock it down with 400 or 600, prime and paint as usual. As for bondo, I use a 60 or80 grit disc on a drill. Snags it off quick but makes some dust. (just my opinion as it works for me...)

You just don't want to use the cheepo gray primer over bare metal and drive it in the weather. The water will cause rust that you can't see under that stuff. You'll find it later, usually in a year or so after you paint it.

Always sand your bare metal before priming first off all. Oxidation happens with in hours after the initial sand. I like to resand any metal after 20 minuites. Then use a metal etch or zinc chromate primer. Just a thin coat. Both can be bought in spray cans.
