Primer color under Inferno Orange?

I'm getting ready to order some touch up paint for my car to fix a few paint chips. I'm just curious what color primer is used under Inferno Orange. I'm assuming gray but some colors use white as a base.

To touch up paint chips you don't need a primer.

Be careful if you order on line.

Those touch up Sticks are worthless.

I'm buying from http://www.automotivetouchup.com/ and I'll be decanting their sprays and shooting it through my airbrush. I'll need a primer to both build up the chip and better adhesion under their paint. They've received pretty solid reviews.

I like their 1/2 oz bottles with a brush in cap for small chips. I'm not
familiar with airbrush method. Again, the touch-up pens stink imo.
Good luck with your repairs.
