Aluminium wood primer applied - what next?

I'm repainting the outside surface of an old curved sash window, from bare wood. I've applied one coat of aluminium wood primer, and just wonder whether I should apply another primer next, or just go for two coats of undercoat, plus one gloss top coat? I will rub down each undercoat lightly before the next coat.

Also, if I'm applying oil-based gloss top coat, presumably I need an oil based undercoat?

Thanks in advance

Yeh...stick to one this case oil based will be better over Aluminium primer..I find acrylic too brittle on an outside anyway.

Couple of uncoats and a couple of gloss'es...or one undercaot and two gloss's...rub down lightly between each coat

Go easy with any filling too..if water gets into it it will blow
