A lot of the issues that make rust return is some fillers absorb moisture. So sealing the metal and the filler is super important. I'm not a lover of single pak under coats they won't do the job of 2 pak epoxy undercoat.But I understand not everyone has access to them so use whatever you comfortable with. I think you should give it a go, if you prep it all let them colour and top coat it. You don't have to spray your undercoats on, you can brush them on and sand them down. Using all the advice above I'm sure we can talk you through it. Keeping stone chips repaired and waxing your paint work will also prevent rust like you have. Do you have a 4" grinder with a sanding disc, 36grit. Sanding blocks, a range of sand paper , 120g , 180g, 240g and 320g. Get some good quality fine filler. Filler applicators.
Give it ago merzatt I'm sure you'll be fine. Check out a view YouTube videos they might help see what your in for. Good luck.
