Por 15 over sndblast and epoxy primer

When we had the mustang ready to go for metal replacement, the car was sand blasted pretty much everywhere. Immediately after, the same shop gave it a coat of epoxy primer.

A lot of the metal which has been replaced, is bare, ground or welded, so I am thinking of using por 15 on the inside of the chassis and undercarriage.

Can I use the por 15 over the epoxy primer, if I scuff it. (The surface is fairly rough already)

That isn't the purpose of POR15. It is best when used over slightly rusted clean steel. Otherwise, the finish you have now with blasted, epoxied, clean steel is as good as it gets. POR15 over that would be more of a liability than a help. Continue on with your finishing.

Thanks, I understand that the epoxy is normally a great way to protect metal.

What I am dealing with, is, in some locations the sand blasting, is not very throrough, and in other areas the epoxy is questionable, add to that the areas of new metal...

I just want to do a good job of protecting all the $ and time invested. I don't have a paint shop or equipment, so spraying epoxy myself is out of the question
