Basecoat and primer coverage question

Sorry. I didn't know how to title this but here is the deal.

I basecoated my 69 Firebird completely and cleared the jams. Then I assembled it with doors and fenders. While doing that I had a stand tip over and scratched my fender. Thank God it did not dent. Anyway, while I was wet sanding with 600 I found a few other spots I could fix.

So here I am with white sealer, then yellow base, and about ten gray patches on various panels including the hood. After wet sanding there are a few white shade spots as well.

So should I spray white epoxy as a sealer over the gray high build patches or just spray yellow base to cover? My gut says you will see these spots if I don't go white. I don't want to spray the whole panel white but I guess I should also get your opinion on that.
