Now I've come across threads that say you can paint over old epoxy primer by just scuffing it up. My question is whether you can do body work with epoxy primer (not bondo work) and apply surface fillers over it to get the body perfect before doing a topcoat.
A big YES with a TRUE epoxy. This hybrid stuff,I don't have a clue.Maybe BarryK or badbob can enlighten you on the specific product.
That link won't come up. Got a brand name & product info?
Realize that most counter guy's want to SELL you something and most don't know WHAT they are selling. Not ALL but most.

The sealer your refering to is not a sealer in the sence that it seal's against the elements but as a protective seal coat prior to paint to prevent bleed thru or to create a uniform color base for the paint. Some primers can be reduced down to spray slick and "seal" the underlying primer. Hence,Primer/Sealer product. HTH. Mike.
