OK, so I need to know the difference between epoxy and a "good primer". Epoxy primer is two parts, The primer and a catalyst (hardner), right?

What primer would I use on top or the filler and under the paint?

Also, is "self etching primer" and "sealer" just other names for epoxy primer.
I am also new at this and some of these terms escape me. What is etching primer, when do you use it and what is the sequence you apply the layers in.

Would I be wrong in assuming the sequence would be:
1)etching primer if there is slight surface rust?
2)epoxy primer
3)body filler
4)sandable primer

I've asked this before but never get a straight answer, because everyone's got their own opinion. Yay or Nay on the above sequence?
