if it's adhesion issues then take it down to metal. It all depends on the damage. In a perfect world I'd do some rough metal work BEFORE epoxy then finalize it. In a normal world I block it, determine what needs to be pulled up with stud pins or dolly's and what can be simply filled. I like to sand my epoxy with 80-180 grit after blocking cause I'm not secure with filler edges that don't properly feather out, which is a true sign of bad adhesion. My opinion hinges on whether or not the epoxy was applied thick enough to do that. If you get it epoxied at a blasting company that sucks it will be thin, sucky adhesion, and I'd rather just take it off. If it's epoxied in house and there's a tad to block out AND get in some good scratches then that's what I do.
