I'm currently building a two piece strat body out of furniture grade pine. I'm planning to finish it in arctic white or close colour (though I'm not up to that stage yet). I'm planning to use automotive spray paint, as I live in Australia and can't get fancy fender colours like you yanks :p. Is finishing as simple (theoretically) as spraying on a couple of coats of automotive primer, then several coats of paint, then a few coats of lacquer? Will I need a grain filler before the primer? Any other tips?

Thanks
