Should I remove all the glaze and start over?

Learning as I go I think searching and reading here that I've messed up...

I bought a new fender for my car (Tawian) that looked good when I got it, turned into a two day job getting it to fit and once I put a flat board on it found that it was as wavy as the Gulf is today Anyway not knowing better at the time I filled and sanded it flat, bare metal showing in places, then life jumps in and it's been setting for 3-4 months waiting for me.

My shop is very dry and there is no rust at all on the bare metal but now I'm concerned that the filler has asborbed moisture and is rusting underneath, a timebomb waiting to happen. Should I sand it all down to bare metal, epoxy prime and start over or clean epoxy and move forward? I'd hate to strip it and start over but I would really hate doing it over a year or two from now after it is painted!

If the bare metal hasn't rusted I'd bet the filler work is fine. Scuff her sown with a red scotchbrite and apply some epoxy primer then surfacer if you filler work is done. Bob

Thanks, everything I've read here since I started really looking into it is epoxy then fill which makes sence and will be what I will do from now on. I'm going to try to get it epoxied this weekend and move forward.

Thanks again,
Lance
