The reason they say not to use rattle can primer under a good 2 stage top coat is because rattle can paints are bottom of the barrel quality compared to a good base coat/clear coat.
If you have a good 2 part epoxy primer there is no need for etching primer on bare metal,,it is just as good or even better than etching primer because it will bond well to just about anything.
