    No worries mate :), I didn't realize it would be such a hassle there, live and learn. Nothing at all wrong with primer if you're painting so have at it, so I can be jealous :lol:

    Jayne,

    No matter what kind of advice you get from even the best intentioned forum members, you always have to do what is best for you. Even if it goes against the norms.

    A primer coat is a great idea for an opaque finish. Go for it!!

    Can't wait to see how it turns out!

    And after the first coat of purple. I will give it at least two more coats before starting with the clear.

    I got the final coat of colour on this afternoon, a total of 5 coats. Tomorrow I will start with the clear topcoat, based on the test pieces, there will be at least 10 coats of clear, possibly more.
