how about no etch primer and epoxy primer instead?

I've been reading about bondo and etch primer, and top coats. Bondo over etch primer could be a problem especially if you don't let it cure long enough to get rid of the acid.
But, with that product, I have to buy a 2k high build primer.
After hours of reading through Dupont technical manuals, I have another Idea and I need your opinion on it.

My idea is to return the etch primer and buy instead
Dupont DTM epoxy primer 25x0S.
This product can stick to the metal and protect it.
It sticks to bondo too.
And I can use my ChromaBase over it

So my new sandwich would be,
DTM epoxy primer over the sanded metal
Bondo over it to obtain a plain surface with the chips of paint missing
DTM epoxy primer again to offer a proper substrate to my basecoat
Clear coat

What do you think? Am I improving with my reading or am I getting worse?
