2K applied, still need some filler - ??????

Car ('69 Chevelle Coupe) was shot in SPI black epoxy, filler work (dents), sealed with a coat of epoxy, then shot with 2K (2 coats) yesterday. THere is an area at approx 10 o clock position pass side rear wheelwell that I didn't notice, but the contour is too flat. Most likely this area may have been pushed in at some time and popped out. I coud possibly get away with it, but I want it to be perfect. I never noticed it before the car was stripped, but then again the car had a 2 tone paint job so a lot was hidden.

The question is, does the 2K come off all the way to the epoxy or can I just scuff and apply filler over the 2K. Once I get the area recontoured, I assume I can just go ahead and shoot my additional coats of 2K over the filler.

Also, what should be used for a filler over the 2K? I used Rage Extreme for my body work, is this suitable for any low areas or am I better off with another product. Thanks.

If you just need a light coat of glazing putty just hand scuff the 2K with 180 and apply.

If you need to apply body filler of course you could do the same thing but I would recommend you sand the primer down to the epoxy with 180 first.

When I say this I'm speaking for no OTHER company as type of resins used in primer and nco's/iso's make or break the above statement.

Thanks for the reply Barry. The 2K is PPG, applied over the SPI black epoxy. Would have used the SPI 2K but I already had the PPG here. I figured as much, but wasn't sure regarding filler. WIll sand with 180 down the epoxy then apply the filler over the roughly 12" x 12" area to get the panel contoured and blended correctly.
