Not trying to Hi-Jack the thread, but this is what I use for primer (recommended by Auto Paint Store). I put 2 coats down, and then wait a few days....around a week minimum, to take and Wet-Sand it with 320 paper. Once that is done....wash with soap and water. After it's dry I paint it with Acrylic Enamel with Hardener (Case/IH Ironguard or Valspar...just whatever I have on-hand).
Is this the right method to use? Is that a good primer to use? Am I sanding the right way and in the right times? I get a decent to good finish.....still not like a mirrored glass finish though.

PPG Omni epoxy can can have surfacer or topcoat applied after 30 minutes. Surfacer over the epoxy I usually wait until the next day to sand, although it can be done the same day. The Omni MP 182 surfacer uses hardener, thus it is sandable very soon. Up to you but you are wasting time with the products you are using. Use quality products from PPG, DuPont, Martin Senour, etc and follow the spec sheet. They ALWAYS work as long as you follow insructions. Yes they are expensive, and some of them require supplied air to protect your lungs, but you get what you pay for. CaseIH does not sell acrylic enamel, it is an acrylic modified alkyd enamel, it's ok but not as good as urethane.
