expoxy primed project in hoop house?

My restoration project just got kicked out of the garage to the "hoop" house. I have been working panel by panel taking the paint down to bare metal and priming with two coats of epoxy. The shelter has an enclosed floor on the sides and two zippered doors at both ends. The only moisture that can get to the vehicle is possible condensation. I will be moving the vehicle back and forth to the shelter from now on as I work each panel.

How long can a let my project sit in this shelter before I need to start worrying about any rust or do I need to worry?

My plans are to shoot primer filler and block sand next. Should I make sure I seal the primer filler with epoxy before it heads to the shelter too? What should be my safest process to ensure that mother nature does not make me do it again?

Thank you in advance for any tips. I got burned last year by storing the project for three months in primer filler and really do not want to go through that pain again.

That is why we use epoxy..yes shoot a seal coat of epoxy over any filler work before it goes to storage..I have things that I epoxied a year ago and no rust..just have to scuff it well before applying any more paint...

Shoot the back sides of your panels with epoxy also, and put a heater in that enclosure.

Don't forget epoxy doesn't like the cold at first. You need to keep the part over 70 for a few days (I'm guessing) until it really cures, otherwise you could be doing bodywork on partially cured epoxy. The epoxy will go dormant in the cold and finish curing when it gets warm again.
