If you were planning on buying a 2k primer and reblocking and then priming again anyways, I see no reason to keep that lacquer primer on there. An epoxy primer would have far better adhesion to your metal and even a urethane would be better over the metal. For normal jobs, 1 blocking with 180 and repriming should be enough if the body work was done pretty well. It up to you, but I really don't see why you would want to keep that lacquer on there if you were planning on buying that much 2k anyways. Lacquer sands very easy and shouldn't be too difficult to remove, IMO. You should have an idea where your bodyfiller areas are, and just keep the da flat and moving or block those areas, non bodywork areas not really as much concern.
