Damed, I must suck. Sometimes it takes me a dozen times of filling sanding a priming to get it right. Maybe it just seems like that many times...
Point is, I hope you have a lot of time and patience, because without both it will be hard to finish.
I find it a bit tough to stop at the first coat of primer when stripping. If the paint is very thick, it either takes days to remove with fine paper, or some 36 grit. I usually opt for the 36 and just go all the way through and then give it a coat of epoxy primer and then a heavy filler primer. Then wet sand untill you start seeing the epoxy coat. Usually by then all the small scratches from the 36 ar filled. If you have to do body work, do it before priming.
