Please excuse my ignorance in most aspects of painting (except spray can, I
think I mastered that :^) ) the items I have been painting with rustoleum
are items like axels and driveshafts (small bits). I wanted to do something
good on the frame. Does Epoxy primer get sprayed on with a paint gun? Then
do you spray over that with the final coat of paint? I have a good
compressor and a good paint gun (that I don't know how to use).
What do I need to do here? what all do I need to paint the frame (eventually
body) considering I am taking it to bare metal. What are reasonable costs.

While rustoleum is ok, I recommend priming them with Epoxy primer. With
that, when rocks chip off the paint, as it surely will, the primer is
still there to protect the metal.
