i thought about putting some store primer too on my bel air but NO, DONT do it unless ure practicing, most of that stuff is not compatible with good paint, like i said unless ure practicing but if ure trying to restore it u have to use good stuff such as ppg or dupont and id strip it down to bare metal, thats what i am gonna do anyways to my bel air, factory lacqueor is bad and is not compatible with todays paint and will lift and peel and do all kinds of bad stuff, but u can risk it using sealer on top of it before topcoat(ur paint) i wouldnt advise so and best stuff to use is Aircraft stripper, make sure u rinse it very good after ure done or it will damage ur paint too. good luck man on ur chevy, more questions ask, well help.
