Default Removing moisture from filler/primer

I was working on the girlfriends Jeep in the garage and pushed the GTO out into the street. Out of nowhere it starts raining. So the car sat out in ran for about 10 minutes.

The car is mostly in primer, but there are some spots that filler is exposed and some bare metal. Am I out of luck or is there something I can do about this? Just dont want the filler bubbling down the road.

I did get the car in as soon as I could and wiped it dry.

Any ideas?

Probably best to take it off and redo it. You may be able to allow the filler to dry out in the sun if you haven't sealed it yet, but I'm not really sure if that would work. I'm not sure if filler loses it's bond when wet, or if trapping moisture in the filler, by priming over it after it gets wet is the cause of bond failure. So if it were me, I'd redo it.

it was evercoat z-grip filler that was on there, not sure if it was waterproof or not.

Why take the chance? It's cheaper and easier to redo the filler now. I have a couple of spots on my car I'm redoing just because I've left them too long without primering.
