mp170 states after their epoxy has sat more then 3 days it should be scuffed and reapplied, so I'd apply another coat over everything to be safe and adhere to the recommendations of the manufacturer, never mind rereading looks like that was your plan anyways. I have never let it sit that long, but if you sand your newly applied coat, as long as painted within 3 days, you should be able to use finer paper if only needed to maybe smooth some and knock out dirt nibs and won't have to worry if you miss sanding some spots, cause you still will have mechanical adhesion. Last car I used only epoxy for primer on most parts, and once all was good, sprayed two reduced coats of epoxy as a sealer, let sit overnight, hit with 1000 wet, and started laying base.
