I usually strip everything down to bare metal, and then once the panels are cleaned thoroughly, I will usually use a self-etching primer (sometimes), and then use an epoxy. IMO, epoxy is the way to go!:Thumbup: You can spend alot of time preping the panels and then shoot them in epoxy, then take a break as long as you need. You can even put the vehicle outside in the weather, as the epoxy is not porous, like conventional primer.
Once the vehicle has epoxy on it, you hen can do your bodywork, and then use high-build primers, or conventional ones, to build up the surface, and then block it down.
But, overall, yes use the epoxy!!! (Even though it is expensive):Thumbup:
