Well my plan of attack was to use the DuPont VariPrime self etching primer as my first coat, then to use the Nason 2K Urethane high build primer, and finally a one of the DuPont 2k sealers. Not sure which one yet, but thats my process I will be using.
I will try the lacquer thinner trick to see if these panels are E-coated or not. I'm getting my panels from CJ Pony Parts out of NJ. Thanks for the advice.
