    Use red primer for red/orange paint for deep colour, use white for light colours, and grey for dark colours. Thats what we do at work.

    What Gary's said is correct. But some colours have a ground coat on top of the primer, for example some oranges/yellows and by using a ground coat gives you better coverage.

    Personally I will use either beige or grey primer myself.

    Hycote aerosol paints are good enough to use. If your doing large plastic panels then i'd use the 3m plastic primer, its a liquid which you put on a cloth and rub over the plastic before shooting primer
