is primer affected by rain

I recently primered my 1994 cadillac with nason high build urethane primer. i then block sanded the whole car and sprayed a layer of guide coat and blocked the whole thing again and some spots required glazing putty, so i apllied it then sanded the area. when i was done with the whole car i washed it throughly and there were some spots that i sanded down to the bare metal. unfortunately i left the car outside to dry before putting it in my garage for a second coat of primer and it began raining and wasnt home to get it out of the rain so it rained for a couple hours before i could wash it again to get it inside. so i was wondering if the spots that were sanded down to the bare metal should be sealed before i re-primer them or is the high build primer good enough as long as i wash the car throughly and there isnt any surface rust. im just concerned because this is my first time painting a car and don't want to waste any material or time. also will the acid from the rain affect adhesion of primer.

apply a coat of epoxy sealer to the bare areas and then reprime. 2K primer sometimes doesn't like to stick to bare metal.

It's more of a "just to be safe" measure.

Just to be safe is always the way to go. All bare metal should be sealed.There are enough things that can go wrong with a paint job, the more things you can prevent the more success you will have.
