Primer is not only something for paint to adhere to but also a filler to some small degree. When you have an improfection then just sand smooth and keep going. It's very important to get coats dry before sanding and the paint container's advice will usually be within guidelines for temps and times. Ask any old school custom painter how coats and sanding was needed and you might get the eyes rolled back deal,not an answer in numbers. When I used to paint I never used primer unless I was mixing paint types which wasn't often. Just get smooth and clean. To avoid problems clean with something that doesn't react to your paint. I only paint my intake systems, lids and flues now. The barrels all get sandblasted and powder coated. No more yearly paint jobs. Steve.
