You have it in the right order! But don't forget to wipe it down with Wax & Grease Remover before you shoot it.

It really all depends on the condition of the Interior Paint, if you have Rust, what your goals are, does it need repainting, whati is your budget, on and on-if it's in good shape and deosen't need anything and you don't want to change color, leave it alone-if it has Rust, you really don't have many choices.

If you don't see bubbles under the Paint, rust trails or anything that would indicate Rust, I would leave it alone-if it is the original Paint and in good condition, and you want to change Color, you could scuff, seal, and shoot it.

you can apply body filler directly to bare metal which is what I would do before shooting epoxy primer to avoid any possibility of the filler absorbing moisture
