is primer waterproof?

Hi. As title, repairing dents etc in doors and above rear screen, Mk3 Mondeo tdci in blue ambition metalic.
Won't have enough time to do it all in 1 day so was wondering if it is ok to get to primer and then next day base and clear 2 pack.
Will be done outside on the drive.
Thing is is it that filler primer over etch primer be water proof? Could cover it and under a gazebo.
Thanks.

It may be ok if it doesn't rain.

Primer and filler are both very porous, so they well start to absorb if soaked.

Thanks Sicskate. Looks like a whole day then lol wait for the lighter nights and start at 0600 hrs? At least it will be warmer. Maybe a seal coat of base?

Hi never thought of epoxy primer. Something to look in to.
Many thanks to both.

This is the best solution.

Primer is still porous.
