A while back I started sanding my car down to bare metal. I planned on sanding everything down and following up with some etch primer, filler, 2k primer, base coat, etc....

Kinda have a change of plans now. I will be wrapping the entire care with 3m carbon fiber vinyl. So with that I don't know what to do as far as paint.
I'm sure it's not a good idea to put the vinyl over bare metal, but I don't know if
I should be using epoxy primer and 2k primer to prep the surface for wrapping when I can possibly go with some less expensive.

Would it be okay to use some body filler and cover the body up with some premixed duplicolor primer from autozone?

Essentially I need to prep a bare metal surface for vinyl wrapping.
Not really looking to spend a ton of money on primer paints but at the same time I don't want to do a half a$$ed job.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I will be doing the vinyl job on a Datsun 280z by the way :)
