Aluminum hood - Can I fill then prime?

I've taken my aluminum hood down to the metal and need to fill a few spots. For filler I bought something called "Fuzion" by USC (from Eastwood). It is supposed to adhere well to aluminum; however, I have received suggestions to prime first, then fill, then prime again. I plan on using an epoxy primer. How should I handle this hood? Thanks.

Epoxy prime first, that is the recommendations from every manufacturer I know of for aluminum parts. We are talking major manufacturers like GM, Toyota, Mercedes and the like.
