Epoxy primer in stages

Hey guys, hows everyone? Summer up here is finally more than rain (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada), and im starting to do more body work! (finally)

Anyways, I do not have the time or space or anything else to strip this whole car down, and epoxy it all at once. At this point im just cutting in and replaces panels one at a time. Just rough cut out the old 1/4 panel, drilled the wheel wells out and starting to clean it up, fitting new parts (yah im replacing alot of panels, the car is in horrible shape (1970 mustang fastback/Canadian winters)).

So what im wondering is:

Is it possible to work like this and spray some SPI (thinking of going with SPI) epoxy primer over the work i have done. Then go to another spot work on it, spray it, repeat.

What kind of problems am i going to have when the 2 sections meet, with seams in my epoxy and what not? Is this possible, or should i go with some dirt cheap rattle can primers then go back later, sand everything back off, and re-epoxy when ready to start the filler work?

Thanks guys!
