I am going to paint my project burgandy and. What primer color would work best? I have the option of black white or grey. At this point I think I will go with bc/cc. Dave

I'm no expert, but with a dark color, either black or very dark grey would probably be best.
I did a quick search and came up with this. [spiuserforum.com]

If you use dark primer, you can get some light primer to use to check for high/low spots (a guide coat) before you paint. And vice versa...dark over light. And if you're using a high build primer (which you should be using), you can actually fill shallow differences with it.

As a general rule if your topcoat has a lot of pigment you can use any color primer or sealer you wish. If your topcoat is leaning toward the see-through candy spectrum you want a color that is in the same family and you want to not have any dark or light spots.

I recently painted some of my 22.5" wheels, I had them sandblasted then I used PPG epoxy primer in medium grey, color coat is PPG acrylic urethane in black, two medium coats and completely covered the grey.
