Is epoxy sealer suppose to be shiny?

I shot my trunk lid with epoxy sealer. The finish is satiny almost glossy. How am I suppose to expect some kind of high-build primer to stick to fully cured epoxy sealer? Its way to slick. I suppose I need to scuff it up?

I'm only doing a panel at a time because that's my only choice. How do guys shoot a whole car with sealer and then primer it? Do they shoot the primer on before the epoxy fully cures or do they wait till it cures and scuff it?

Yes,It will semigloss on you.
Most epoxy has a recoat window for recoating,chemical bonding.
After that,it should be scuffed with a red scotchbrite before applying 2K,mechanical bonding.
I will scuff it anyway as I prefer to let epoxy cure a day or 2 before applying anything to it. I have had some lifting even though it is still in the recoat window. More work,but so is having lifting later.

What brand is it?
