Yep.... 100% correct for resto's.

Epoxy on bare metal and then sealers/fillers.

Epoxy primer will have 15X's the adheasion than bare metal to fillers and sealers. The protection is nice too

Don't use a sealer when you go to paint. Get your primer all sanded down to 600G and use basecoat directly on the fresh sanded primer. You'll retain more gloss with less die-back.

Hope that helps,
