Very brief update here. If you want details, follow the link in my post above to my thread on the autobodystore.com forum.

Worked on the bags and lids today. Lids are ready for epoxy primer and paint. Left bag is ready for paint. Right bag still to go! Hopefully get that done tomorrow afternoon.

When priming, we always add Dykem or carbon black to tell the different layers and know real fast a high spot vs aggressive sanding.

Sure, once you have mixed your components together for your primer, add a little red or blued Dykem to it to change the color, that way, when sanding you'll see your high spots quickly, and if you see the color underneath, either you found a high spot or you have sanded to long in that spot.

That sounds like a good way to do that. A mixed-in guide coat. I've been lightly dusting with flat black spray paint. Your way saves a step. 😎 And probably saves time sanding, too: the guide coat guns up the paper pretty quick the first few strokes.
