    Maybe try Transtar water based primer in black. It is tough stuff. I was working on a small engine really close to a 67 Mustang that a restoed a few years back. I splattered the whole front end with fuel and oil. I thought it would kill the paint. It just wiped off with prep solve and I was able to paint over the top. Plus it looked cool.

    I agree with what's been stated...basically, do your best to get it right so the color doesn't matter as much....but white really does hide the imperfections pretty well. I was lucky that I always intended to paint my car white, and this was the first body work and paint I had ever done. If I had tried to spray any other color, I may be ashamed to let anyone see it. It was FAR from perfect, but not bad for the first car I ever painted.

    I think it looks beautiful. That should turn some heads. You should be very proud.
