correct steps?

I would like to repaint my trans am dark solid green -Brewster green
Having a somewhat experienced friend spray it and help with prep.
Probably use Devilbliss Starting line gravity feed and hvlp detail guns I have.
It has been repainted once before, filler in some spots, welding and 1/8th deep filler in rear quarter.
Here are a few pics of the car and worst areas.

Im in canada and you can't seem to get any recommended products here.
I'm planning to get SPI epoxy primer for the sealer coat and clear, and a dupont or ppg base from across the border. This will take some time.

In the mean time, I was really hoping to buy low voc epoxy to cover rust repair areas, apply body filler, sand, another coat of epoxy. Then I could block sand the rest of the car. Once sanded wait for epoxy sealer, base and clear to arrive.

Question, am I missing a step, 2K or poly primer over deep scratches, guide coat then sand or even 2k over whole car. Or can I use the epoxy primer to fill scratches as well. If I use putty or filler for small chips/scratches, it has to be down to metal right?

Question 2, which available primer would you use
Nason 491-10 with 48301 $66
Dupont 2940S victor and V2905S $140
PPG DP50LV and DP401LV $140 which also says to use a reducer at $80/gallon, is the reducer needed?

Question 3, the rear quarter I plan to take to metal over damaged area and build up, correct?

Last question I promise, the rusty hole in the door is only through the outside metal, how is this fixed, I have a backpack sandblaster, shoot it? por-15? epoxy prime and fill? could probably have someone use suitcase welder and patch but its a pain.
sorry this rant is so long, hoping to order paint from down south asap.
