dont even primer it, if the parts got decent paint on it, leave it..
more pain in the ass for the bodyman to sand that cheap can shit off..

But if you must primer it get a quart of epoxy primer and then go to home depot get a paint tray and ultra smooth roller. you can roll the primer on since you dont have a compressor.

he would be better off renting a compressor for the day and getting a cheap 14 $ harbor freight gun for the primer.

For the initial prime he will do fine will the roller cause he or whoever is gonna block it anyway just the final prime is best off sprayed out of a gun.

so ur sayin that you dont want to roll around with mis matching boddy pannel colors then ?
youd rather have rattle can primer on the parts ?

or is it something diffrent that im missing ?

id be tempted to ask some of your homies around the way if they have an air compressor you can borrow for a day - and shoot paint with one of them cheapo harbor freight guns.

I was using rattle can rustolem black on my whip when I was doing some touch up boddy work just to cover up the red bondo spots - but when I sprayed it with real paint - there were spots where I could tell that it was rustoleum spray can under neath the real paint. they were less glossy than the rest of the car - so watch out man with that spray can. it might end up biting you in the long run.
