well what's the best color to use overall. painting is a ways off for me, i don't know who's gonna paint it. i just need to get some primer on the car when i take it to bare metal. the color of the paint is going to be rangoon red. i'm sure the paint shop will probably prime eveb more, and might sand off my primer beforehand. i just need a quickie job to get something on my car. thanks.
