Epoxy over lacquer primer?
I bought a 36 Chevy a couple years ago and the body was in red oxide primer which I think is lacquer, based on the fact that I can rub it with a thinner soaked cloth and it turns red. There was a lot of body work already finished on the car and I would say it was very well done and seems to be very straight. I am rodding the car and after finishing the chassis work I have now turned my attention to the body, there are a few areas with minor damage that I will fix and I have actually shaved the hinges and door handles. My thought was that I would just block down the primer and then use SPI epoxy to seal everything? I know many will say take it down to bare metal but I really don't want to remove all of someones great work. Can I get away with this?
