The Epoxy is designed to go over bare metal before any filler work is done. The beauty of that is it will protect the bare metal from moisture. For heavy filling you will want to use the normal body filler and/or 2k high build primer surfacer and finally sealing with Epoxy before paint.

What some of us have done on minor issues that do not require filler or heavy build is to apply extra coats of SPI epoxy to attain moderate build. Then all that is required is blocking and painting. From what I understand, the build qualities of SPi epoxy are about 1/2 that of a 2k primer surfacer.
