priming corvette

I've got a corvette that I need to prep for paint. Car is stripped to gel coat. very little use of paint stripper.My plan was to redo body work on seams and a few other small spots. DA with 80 grit put on a poly primer like featherfill or something simular. Block sand and reprime with a 2k pimer, sand, seal and paint with ppg base clear.This is the way I've always done vettes but have not done one in over 10 yrs. You guys working in corvette shops got any better ideas?
