As to the sheet metal: Sand the sheet metal to remove all the old paint and rust if any, then use epoxy primer, not etch, you don't sand it, can be topcoated in about 30 minutes. Etch primer is made for new sheet metal, saves body shops the time it takes for sanding. Your old metal requires sanding anyway. If the sheet metal is dented you need to use body filler, then epoxy, then a sandable surfacer, then topcoat. As far as I'm concerned there is no place for etch for what you are doing.

I was told Etching primer is supposed to be used on bare metal, and that's what the sheet metal is right now.

What he meant was etching primer is only needed on smooth , right out of the stamp or roller type steel that is so smooth that primer won't adhere properly unless sanded or acid etch primer is used. Your bare steel is or will be allready sanded or sand blasted to provide the bite for epoxy primer. If you have allready bought etch then use it. Just wasn't needed. As long as this isn't going to be outside in all the sun n rain and extreme temps then I really don't thing you will have a problem with the economy clear cote. Are there better products for this use? Yes there are . How much do you want to spend and will you ever see the net gain in durability? What's the intended use? Only you can answer that.
