primer question

I have some rust primer in spray cans that I want to use on a prepped surface of metal/oem primer/filler. I plan on using this primer once my body work is done, letting it cure then when I can get it to a paint booth, sand using 400 grit then use an epoxy primer then bc/cc. Will this method work without causing problems provided I do everything right?

I wouldn't use the rattle can primer for any prep work, if you do,
make sure you get it all sanded off before primeing and painting.
It's adhesion is low and protection is practiically nothing.
The rattle can primer I've seen is lacquer base, it doesn't keep moisture
from going through. Lacquer base primers shouldn't be wet sanded for
that reason. It may look good on the outside but underneath the metal
will rust fairly quick.

Anything from a rattle can should not be under any paint job that you expect to last. Remove all of it before you apply a catalyzed primer and paint.

Not a good idea. You will just be causing yourself more work to take off that primer later.

Just hit it with a coat of epoxy now and then when it's ready for paint, sand it to scuff it up and put on another coat of epoxy primer before primer/surfacer and painting.
