I dont trust ANY coating that I didnt put on myself....The first thing I do with aftermarket,steel parts is sand it off and use my own brand of epoxy...
I've had the same problems with bumpers that would lift as soon as the first coat of color was laid on.I immediately washed all the paint off with lacquer thinner and found that the primer also came off ,it looked like black lacquer primer to me......Now, the first thing I do is wash the covers with a good dose of thinner to see if the primer comes off then I'll apply a mold release agent then w&g and then epoxy (because its a flexible primer) it takes longer (an extra day) but it has to be done I cant afford a comeback on a customers car...
We also buy and sell a lot of cars ...(lot cars ,but nice lot cars),on those cars I dont bother with all that and just sand and paint over that crap primer...I've seen a lot of problems from lifting to peeling doing it this way ,but I also make a lot of money from customers that buy cars then come back a year later for some repairs..
Dont EVER trust a coating you didnt put on yourself. Thats the main reason I strip a car ,otherwise I cant guarantee the paint job...Who Knows Whats under There ??????

epoxy prime

Metal prep is good stuff if used properly, epoxy is total insurance if applied over properly prepared and dried bare metal, why take any chances?? use both! Dp epoxies are awesome! we can't get them anymore in Canada which sucks,they are not voc compliant, hopefully they come out with a new one, they are the closest thing to waterproof as it gets, do it right and it will last!!
