Would it be Ok to use a DA with 80 grit on the more flat areas? Most of the car has big ol' curves and won't be fun to block! I have read lots of good info about SPI epoxy and think that's what I want to use to seal, is this a good application for that product?
Thank you

DA a spot as if it has been outside and there is no epoxy under the lacquer primer or old paint you will find there is rust on the metal.
