E-Coating on replacement panels

First, I want to apologize if there is already a thread on this topic. I used the search function but didn't see one, maybe I scanned over it. If one already exists, feel free to slam me, or merge/delete this, Mods. Just let me know where to find it first!

OK, so I received a replacement rear fender from LMC Truck, and it has that black primer e-coating (?) on it. My plan is to finish the fender in PPG D74LF primer to match the rest of my truck (refer to my avatar). So my question is: how should I prep the fender before applying the PPG primer? Do I need to sand off the e-coating? Just scuff it up and shoot the PPG primer? Actually, now that I think about it, I have no idea what that black coating is! Anyone know what they use on their fenders? If not, I'll call and ask them.

Thanks in advance, and again, if there's already a thread on this, please post a linky dink for me?

Ant
