What kind of primer do I use?

I currently use a shellac based primer.  Zinsser B-I-N It seals the wood so nothing bleeds through and you clean up with alcohol. No super toxic fumes. It sprays and brushes well. I reapply the primer and sand until it feels smooth.

It is very white. All of the white parts on this car are Zinsser B-I-N primer with a clear coat on top. Note how the white background of my photo tent looks grey by comparison.

The primer needs to be sandable. You may need to try some primers.  The first primer I tried didn't sand well at all.
