waterborne/ sealer question

so the painter has been having knee issues and I've been filling in with some cutting and rubbing. Just found out I might do a spot job. Factory bumper in black primer. I'm assuming it's a primer I can scuff/scuff paste and shoot. My question is, for a dark grey metallic is black what I want under it or should I seal it with white? Not sure if we have tintable sealer. If it's ok to scuff and shoot I will have to seal the back part of the decklid for color uniformity and will try to seal it black too. Any advice appreciated. It's been years since I painted and I didn't use sealer.

Also wondering about waterborne...Should I wet the floor? We have those air guns and know about letting it flash with the air on it at angles but do you wait a couple minutes before hitting it with air and how long a flash?

Far as I can remember, only used water borne once, is the real differences are sand with 800, make sure the base is dry(longer flash), bounce air off of it during flash, and you should be good. Anything I'm missing? I'm thinking the tack rags are waterborne approved being it's Ca.

Might have to do this after lunch so any quick responses get a huge thumbs up. To be honest, I'm more worried about the 1.4 tip gun as I'm more of a 1.3 guy. I won't go for the homerun I guess.

I will let someone answer the waterborne questions. But for dark grey, it should cover well over any color, but a black would be nice in case of any chips. Then it wont show up white if it happens down the road.

If this is a collision spot job definately seal the new cover,I don't know of any manufacturers who will warranty any paint work on a new cover with out sealer,it will imrove adhesion etc.As far as waterborne wetting the floor won't hurt anything.As soon as you apply a coat put the blowers on it and wait for it to go dull beofre you apply another coat.You don't need a tornado just a nice even flow of air to help the paint flash.Not sure what product you are using but ppg enviro/nexa aquabase/sikkens autowave are all very similar and based on latex technology,most of the others like dupont SW basf just use waterborne binder in solvent tinters.So in short every system is a little different,HTH you....
