Not sure about the W&G remover. I used some prep stuff that came in a spray can I got at the paint store. I always used it the night before painting, that way there was no question it would flash off.

And you got me thinking, if your car has been sitting for awhile with that sanded epoxy on it, it couldn't be a bad idea just to go over the whole thing lightly with a grey scuff pad the night b4 you are going to paint. That epoxy gets pretty hard and you don't want any adhesion problems. Then do the final wipe down.

Next morning, mix paint, tack the car off and you are good to go.
