ok let me start out by saying that I am not a noob at this but I am far from pro

my buddy is having me paint this s10 and I am going to use nason base and clear

the problem comes with the primer he gave me it is ful-fil 421-08 acrylic primer-surfacer and the guy at the paint store told him to reduce it with laquer thinner.

will this cause any problems I would like to know now before I have to scrape paint and start all over

It's a lacquer primer. You still need etch or epoxy over any bare metal, and as tomsteve said, it has to be sealed. I'd return it and get epoxy and urethane primers.

normally I would just use epoxy and 2k

this is for my buddies mom and it is a super low budget paint job

the primer is just what he had laying around

it has been done before with the same base and the same primer but I am just a little worried about it

Your name goes on the paint job regardless.
Insist on painting it the proper way with the proper materials or you will regret it later.

can I wet sand the primer for paint

the only reason I ask is I saw that getting lacquer primer wet is a no no

I am going to mask it off tommarro and spray some of this primer so any help would be appreciated

thanks for your input so far

My painting teacher many years ago always dry sanded lacquer primer - so I have done the same as well, although I have been rubbished for doing so by other guys in the shop. Now a days even if I HAVE to paint in an acrylic lacquer topcoat I always use the 2K primer and wet sand. Don't use the 1K stuff much anymore (but many do on this side of the pond).
