Once upon a time, somebody told me "never polish your primer". And it makes sense to me that a little bit of tooth on the primer surface would help the paint adhere. Therefore I do try to make the contours smooth (never thought to put water on it; thanks for the tip!) but I always go over the primer with #220 to #320 paper, used dry, before applying the paint. Do you plan to do this?

This has been a great thread so far, please keep it up!
