Tom has it right! Can't beat laquer primer, especially if you need to do a lot of build and block sanding. New stuff will cost $$$$$$$$. I do like the etching primers on bare metal though. Only takes a light coat so a quart will do a whole car. Then go with the laquer. Like Tom says, if you wait a week or so before sanding and let it settle, laquer is great. If you want to do the entire paint job in a day or two, you are stuck with $$$$ worth of the catalyzed stuff.

Incidentally, in California it is illegal to sell laquer primer in auto parts store but it is totally legal to sell for wood working. I just go the building supply counter in the same paint store and but it there.
