    Depending how desperate you are for it...

    my order of finding stuff cheap is:

    Web (poss incl ebay)
    Motor factor
    Halfords (or similar)

    whereas if time has a bearing, then halfords, motorfactor...then web.

    Since you live in the S.West,Pat Williams or Kevin Coopers M. factors should be able to sort you out with some decent stuff, try and avoid the hycote brand if I were you, I've never been impressed with their primers and basecoats.

    Yes because lacquer will magnify the blemishes.
