its always best to remove the blk primer from your replacement panels its just cheap crap and you never know.....
What I like to do on jobs that matter is completely fit the panel including making all the spot(plug weld) weld holes,Then use a good epoxy that I trust on the new panel AND the mating surface..I then refit the panel and using my flat angle spot weld drill ,I remove the epoxy only where the welding holes are,I dont use any weld thru primer on this kind of work I only use the weld thru on run of the mill work where its better than nothing...
A good epoxy all by itself will last just as long as something with paint over it.
