Which Polyester Primer to use with Matrix Paint System???

I talked to the tech rep today at Matrix Paint, since I plan to use thier BC/CC system, and he recommended using a polyester primer between any body filler and high build primer surfacer. He said Matrix did not currently make a polyester primer but he mentioned looking at U-POL and Evercoat. Can anyone make a recommendation based on experience using any of those brands. Evercoat's websites list "Feather Fill" and "Slick Sand". The only thing I can find from U-POL is called "Reface". The guy from Matrix said the polyester prime will not shrink and that is why I should use it, where as regular high build primer surfacer will such as Matrix MP3-HS High Build will. Any suggestions on which is the right polyester primer to use is appreciated.

I plan to use these products in this order:

1) Matrix MP-900 Epoxy Primer over the bare steel body
2) A thin coat of Evercoat Rage Ultra filler for leveling
3) A polyster primer based on your recommendations for finer leveling
4) A coat or two of MP3-HS high build primer to fill any sanding scratches
5) a Coat of Matrix MP-900 Epoxy reduced as the sealer
6) Matrix Premium Base Coat
7) Matrix MS-42 High Solds Clear

Thanks in advance for your advice on which polyester primer to use with this system ~ Len

Omni's MP243 is sort of in the same product family, isn't very expensive, and from many many gallons of personal experience I can say it works great. You must use fresh product though, check for bad settling of pigment and date code on bottom of can. Also use caution with the hardener dropper, the tip can pop out easily so I suggest pulling that out and pouring instead. Do not splash!
