I bought etch primer to fix my paint, but I feel like changing for epoxy primer...

Here is my problem, I have a cavalier 05 orange sunburst II and some flakes of paint went off after an accident revealing rust just at the end of the fender beside the headlamp. I hit a little dear...It is sad, but it is not the point.
So, the insurance didn't fix it and I have to do something with it. I tried the spray cans, but what a disaster with the clearcoat!
One thing I know is that I'll have to sand block the rusted part and use something like BONDO (3M filler) to flatten the bare metal with the chipped paint.

So I started my journey at a NAPA shop. The guy sold me
Dupont Nason 497-00 urethane clearcoat
Dupont Nason 483-78 activator

Dupont ChromaBase base coat -Orange Sunburst II
Dupont Chroma System Basemaker 7175S Mid temp

Dupont Etch Primer 1k A-4115S

But my question is about the layers in between Etch primer and base coat.
Can I put bondo over etch primer and would they stick together?
And what should I put between Bondo and base coat ?

I don't feel like the sandwich

Bare metal
Etch primer
Base coat

is going to work well...
I need help.
