painting questions

I just sprayed epoxy primer on door last night. Anyone know why the areas we used filler on showed thru? I am thinking bcuz the spray coverage is too thin. We sanded the filler with 100 after knocking down the big stuff we used 220 feathered in the filler then used 400. Everything seemed smoothe but when we wiped everything down with w & g remover and tacked off I sprayed a coat of epoxy primer on the door I could see the body work. We let sit for about 30 min. and shot another coat and still could see the body work, just not as bad. Any ideas? This is me and my sons 1st time to paint, father/son project. Thanks

The places you sprayed filler appear dull,because the filler absorbs the primer,no problem,just spray a few coats til it (filler)doesnt absorb anymore,then sand lightly and paint.
