That wouldn't be practical. You want to strip the metal, treat it with a good metal prep, then use a good quality self-etching primer.
Before you even get started, you should first decide which paint system you want to use and then buy all compatible materials. For example, if you decide on PPG, you'll use all their chemicals. Metal prep, primer, paint, reducer, etc..." Good to a good body shop supply store and get literature on the systems they sell. If someone else will be painting the car for you, you should find out what system they prefer.
You don't want to find out after all the work has been done and all the money has been spent that your primer isn't grabbing to your top coat well. Painting a car isn't as easy as most people like to think it is. It's a science.
