Post '57 bel air paint

hey guys i am thinking i am right but i am not sure, i am just starting painter, but i have my bel air and wondered if sealer would do enough for my new paint job over original lacqueor finish, cause i dont want it lifting afterwards or do something funky when i paint it, i wondered if i just should strip it all with stripper, i really wouldnt have to worry about it then as much as if i would leave it on there and seal it.
and also what about when i have to finish small body work with little filler, should i use self etch on bare stell around filler then and then primer surfacer it and seal it and go on with top coat. or should i use epoxy on spots i fix with bondo?

I would strip all the lacquer off. From experience , I have had problems with that. Even if it does not lift the chemical could react when the top coat is drying and it could shrink in. Then you would have to redo it or sand it down and buff the whole thing. Try sanding it off with a d/a. It might sand off easy. Just keep the d/a flat so you dont dig in and make it look wavy.
For you body work, etch primer the bare metal, use your primer surfacer and let it dry. Block it out and get it ready to paint. Then seal and paint.

I agree with paintman, best bet is to remove all of the lacquer. If its removed there should be nothing to cause problems later. D/A with 80 should work.
