how should i prime a spot

i recently applied epoxy primer over a media blasted fender. afterwards i applied body filler over the spots that needed it. it turned out i didn't use enough hardener and it was not good. I scraped all the filler off with a broad flat head driver. it left me with some scratches down to bare metal.

should i just run a da sander over the entire affected area and just touch up the scratches with more epoxy or am i doomed to sand the whole panel down and start over

Primer before filler is way over rated and causes more problems than it solves for the new to the autobody game..
Yes DA with 80gr to metal. then filler straight on that and primer after body work like in the good ole days..

Here's 3 secrets that'll help

I have done this both ways I have been using epoxy over bare metal for 10 years now I have never had a problem on the other hand I have applied filler over 40 grit scratches for years to with no problem and yes I would feather the scratches and reprime

is it required that the primer be feather edged before re applying primer considering the spots will have filler applied over it
