You either use epoxy primer and paint within the window, or if outside the window scuff it and give it another coat. Epoxy is such a good primer that I won't recommend anything different. If you are afraid of rust, use Picklex 20. It is a rust preventative that comes in a squirt bottle--you can spray on and level out with a brush. It will keep rust off for months. Do not wash it off. When you get ready to paint, scuff the white residue off with a scotchbrite pad, follow with wax and grease remover, apply epoxy and topcoat within the window. You will want to put a sandable surfacer over the epoxy on the sheet metal in order to get a smooth surface. If you are using body filler, although it can be applied over the epoxy, I prefer bare metal, as you have to apply the epoxy again anyway after you sand the filler.
