sounds like a concours job!
On the concours cars I use ppg products like zink oxide on sand blasted frames before I shoot semigloss black, ppg is costly! For my customers on a budget I use TRANSTAR 2k epoxy/primer tinted black [grabs bare metal very well, goes on heavy, fills very well, hard to sag, lays down smooth and is scuff or no scuff paintable , its hard to sand through when applied at three wet coats, dries semi gloss and when tinted black may pass as finished frame paint if its not a concours car!] I also use sikkens color build plus but again COSTLY! Make sure you use a good mask at the least a lot of materials will kill you quick compared to 20 years ago!!! some are absorbed through the skin also!!! Hope this helped. Im not on line every day but i do check in once and a while> good luck Eastwood ceramic is great hemmings recomends it! And I just used it on a 65 Impala. I do not use clear on cast painted parts, i use semi gloss clear on clean or new cast parts that are to remain natural. I clear brake lines too
