sealing primer or not to seal

hi i am using an acrylic lacquer primer and my question is after applying a layer of body filler and priming do i need to seal the primer or can i apply the paint over the primer with out sealing it ? i have read that the filler would absorb the primer/ paint and show through the paint

Did you also read that lacquer primer is the absolute worst kind of primer to use??? Do yourself a favor and toss that stuff ,even the cheapest brand of 2K primer will give you a better result...

I seal everything using PPG sealer but that is using urethane primer. I haven't used lacquer primer in a long time. Big reason i seal though is because i believe it helps the paint stick a lot. If you ever get sealer overspray it seems a lot harder to get off than primer overspray where i believe in its stick, and basecoat goes on wet on wet, or real close to that into the sealer. Its also an easier application straight on top of e-coat for new panels rather than having to shoot primer then waiting for that to dry to apply the base.
