I would try 80 first and see how well it cut if this is OEM paint only.
36 will get it done but I only go that radical if the 80 dosen't "cut it" so to speak. It's a lot more work to bring 36 up to 80 and I'm all for less work.
Point being,It takes say 2 day's to 36 it and then another 2 day's to bring it up to 80 for epoxy. vs. 2 1/2-3 day's to use 80 and be done. JMO.

start with 36 grit and work up to 80 before you epoxy it.... Keep your speed slow as heat will warp panels

What Grit For Sanding Paint
I have a 66 Mustang Fastback that has been in storage for a long time. Instead of using chemicals I want to take the original paint off with a DA. Some of the paint has surface rust on it. There is very little pitting but some (light pitting) in a few different places. What grit pad would you recommend doing this with? Should I start with a course grit and finish with a finer one?
Thanks in advance
