Default Whiplash Laquer Primer Question

At the end of the Whiplash instructions it states not to use ANY type of lacquer thinner, lacquer paint, or lacquer primer - this can destroy the airframe.

What the *ell!

Of course I've read this after I've primed, sanded, filled, primed, sanded, filled, primed, sanded, filled (about 5 times).... With a Lacquer Auto Primer.

I don't see any adverse effects at this point, what do I get to look forward too???? I was hoping to put Auto paint on this thing tommorrow.

Default primer

You're ok, just paint with an epoxy or urethane...

The paint I plan to use is PPG Deltron Clear Coat Base Coat Auto Paint.

Great,

I'll post a pic when done. Scheme will be the same paint, as my avatar Q40, with a little extra black trim...

Not sure where this Whiplash came from (bought it off a guy here on RCU), it was brand new, but dinged up pretty good.
