anything that isnt masked off will get overspray on it. If your just masking of the imediate area where your spraying (lets say a rear bumper cover) then everything from there on will get overspray on it all the way to the front bumper....what we do is bag the car (a plastic cover) and cut out where the panel is to be primed....If I prime a car and leave my safty glasses out on the bench they'll be ruined with overspray,so if you dont want primer on it you better cover it...This holds true for ALL primers and paints...
Body filler will suck up more primer so what I do is spray a coat on the filler areas first then when that flashes spray 2 coats on the whole panel ....The filler might still show through as a flatter color (No sheen) but its nothing to worry about.
