If the first shop used epoxy primer, then applying another brand epoxy primer is of no consequence. But if the primer is not epoxy based, sometimes there can be a problem with different companies paints and primers mixing with other brand names.
I would do what 302 says...........but whatever brand topcoat you are going to use , I would use that brand name primer as well.

If you or the shop is worried about the existing primer there is no reason to re-do everything. Block sand the whole car down and apply several wet coats of SPI epoxy primer. It will seal the existing primer and provide an excellent base to either build more primer on or painting over.

body work. All that's needed is to block sand a guide coat to make sure
everything's straight, then prime and paint with whatever the new shop
want's to use.

body work primer type
I have a question about bosy and paint. I remember years ago I had some body work done at a shop on my 66 mustang. I only wanted the bisy work done as I was still working on other things and paint would be later. I wanted the car back primered which that's what I got. Before I could get the car painted by the person that did the body work, the guy lost the shop and moved out of state.
Long storey short, I wanted another shop to paint the car, but they insisted I have the body work done all over again because the first shop used the wrong primer. I think my first guy was spraying dupont, and the second used PPG. Does this sound right. It's been a while so I can't really remember.
Having body work don on new car and don't want to make the same mistake. What primer do I want. The car is originally white and I would like to leave it original color. Car is a 64 mercury comet conv. Red interior. Like other car, not ready to paint. Just body and primer for now.
