Rough surface opinion.

Ugh, i should really get my sealer as smooth as glass before I lay down base.... Do you think clear will take care of this issue or will it stick out more? See picture

I'd block it flat and re-base, generally clear magnifies problems
instead of hiding them.

That is way too much texture IMO.. Have you got your gun adjustment down?? From the pic, I think you need to play with the gun settings more too

It appears a lot better to me but pictures are hard to judge.
What did you do different this time?

Sanded the primer smoother. Last time I just glaced at it and thought it was smooth and didn't notice the small "canyons"

Are you trying for some type of texture. The primer should be sanded smooth. The texture of the primer will be carried through the base, unless you put alot of base on there to smooth it out. Generally I only use enough base to cover the primer, not smooth it out. Although you may get a smooth finish from the clear, you will likely be able to see the texture of the base.
