Prep

Find a good sealer and seal over 400 grit 1 nice coat then paint after sealer has dried 15min. The rule is paint over 400-up. I base over 400 some times depending on base, if it's a light metallic paint over 600 or just seal the 400 and then apply base coat. If it's a solid or dark metallic primer sanded with 400 and goooooooo!

Just pay close attention to your reduction ratios its very easy to get it mixed up when everything you use has a diferent ratio...Even after 35 yrs of doing this work I get complacent and start day dreaming while mixing stuff....PAY ATTENTION.....This is what happens when you mix a 1:1 epoxy at 4:1......
Someone said using epoxy is like putting a condom on your car for protection...I never knew just how true that was till I screwed this up...

Speaking of razor blades....You wouldnt think such a small little thing would be SO important but ALL razor blades are NOT equal.....GET GOOD ONES...
I bough a box of 100 at lowes and they were the worst junk I ever used ...
stripping some peeling clear ,they nick after about two passes I had to throw them out, they wouldnt even cut masking paper without tearing it.
I got some good ones (PPG) and I stripped a whole hood today with one blade and never scratched or nicked the base coat...
The reason I mention this is I can only imagine someone that didnt know trying these and not knowing how they are supposed to work and nicking and scratching the whole job making all that extra work especially when stripping that last layer of epoxy or primer of the steel...a nicked blade is bad ,even for your sheetmetal
