Who has a "Tip" of "Advice" on a GOOD high build primer for filling the pits you see above?

AL. All paint companies have their version of high built primers.I always recommend to stay with one companies products from start to finish,then if you have a problem there is not the finger pointing game. On the parts you showed I would first use a glazing type body fill goes on easy and more inportantly sands a lot easier than normal body filler,to fill the pitts then high prime. If you fill the Pitts with high build,you also build up the surrounding area. Hope this helps
FYI I use the Glasurit paint system,last 30 odd years. Cheers pete

I like Evercoat Slick-Sand and Eastwood Contour Polyester Primer-Surfacer. Both products have a heavy build and sand easily without clogging sandpaper. I finish with 400 grit paper before applying the top coat.
