Always prime your walls before painting if the surface is porous. The surface is porous when it absorbs water, moisture, oil, odors or stains

To get a good finish its best to sugar soap the walls clean, give them a sand and a fill, then prime again white, this helps to cover any flashing from filler and gives you a brand new surface to which you can then apply the grey. If the walls are in good nick then give them a good wash and you can apply the grey straight to it.

It's best to denib the wall to remove any loose or cracked paint work. Then apply a mist coat followed by 2 full coats.

Sand down walls, dust off and apply a watered down 1st coat.

Hi, no you don't need to prime it, you just will need 1 more coat to have the finishing you decided. So not 2 but maybe 3 coats needed.

Only if you are painting with a diffrent style of paint like silk on emulsion ect.

Sometimes a light sanding is good to key for the next color.
