    I've always used Lechler epoxy primer. Metalflake UK deliver it but the price is without a toner which you need to ask for as otherwise there is no body in the mix and you get clear gnats ****. Mine is done in a light grey but they will do other colours. You need 2:1 paint/hardener plus a drop of thinners.

    I get my Lechler epoxy primer from here

    Choose Car paints from the UKs biggest online colour database

    Looks a bit cheaper than from Metalflake this comes tinted grey, make sure you get the correct activator

    I use the Green TI on top of this, it sands really nicely

    Lechler epoxy, then ti green onto that, wet on wet. Saves sanding the epoxy. There is a special thinners for it but 2k thinners works fine. Tried PPG epoxy, didn't like it and needed lots of heat to go off properly.
    Jotun is great stuff but I only use it underneath, rock hard, no fun at all to sand, it's a different animal to your automotive epoxy.
