Where to get primer for cheap?

Where should I go to buy primer. I don't need very much, just enough to do an area about the size of a hood and fenders. I need dark black primer. Also how would I go about making it look smooth. I'm not interested in painting over it. I want it to look GOOD. TIA.

Thanks Greg. Any tips to make it look good? I want this to be the paint job. Not just the prep for one.

Yep, I want a "dark flat black" and figured a black primer would be the easiest thing. I'll call him tomm.

its all in the sanding that makes it smooth. it takes time, but start high and end up with 1500-2000 grit wet sanding, it will be smooth

..they make satin clears now. A little expensive but if you primed your stuff, sprayed some good black basecoat and used some HOK flattening agent in your clear your paint should last a whole lot longer than just primer.

If its just a hood and fenders I dont think you'll spend more than $150-$200 to get all the painting material

Thanks for the info. I'm just wanting to do a primer right now because I'm not sure what type of paint scheme I'm going to do. I'm just playing with some ideas right now and only primering it for time being will allow me to do alot less work when I do paint it.

Also since I'm painting plastic I know I'm going to need a flex agent to prevent cracking like on the bumpers of cars.
