Red or orange should cover the grey primer just fine, provided neither is a metallic nor candy/transparent color.

If the paint break line is straight for the most part (no tight radius curves), I would mask the bottom half, apply the red/orange, then apply the black after masking the red/orange off. After the black is dry, lightly sand down (with very fine 1200 grit or finer) any ridge at the paint break line, apply clear coats over the entire body, then polish it out if you wish.
