I only know house paint, only heard of epoxy and urethane as a coating, mostly use urethane for hardwood floors, and epoxy for concrete anchors. Is jibber a store or slang for something else?When you say acrylic, I think you mean enamel. While good paint, it’s a bit dated. We use urethane products mostly now, polyester urethane if you want to be more specific.
Oreillys used to be a dealer for dupont products.
Look for a jibber that specializes in automotive paints, they’ll make their main money from selling to body shops, but they will sell to the general public as well. A big plus for these guys is that you’ll find they hire people with knowledge in body and paint work.
You can use a couple different primers if you want that won’t interfere with the top coats. Generally the choice is between urethanes and epoxies. I’m not such a fan of epoxies myself, though they do have a benefit of not lifting old paint jobs you might be priming over. They do harden lark a rock and are difficult to block though.
Laquer primers should definitely be avoided.
