single stage over oem BC/CC

I am wanting to paint a hood (bird droppings ate the clear coat off in spots) that has an OEM BC/CC silver metallic (93 Ford) paint on it. I wanted to use the same OEM color in a Urethane single stage and wondered how I should prep the OEM finish? Can I get by with just sanding the OEM finish with some 320 dry and paint over it or will I need to add some primer?

If it was me, I would strip the whole hood. The vehicles had problems with clear peeling back then. There is a good chance that the clear on the rest of the hood is not held on by much. There is no way that I know of to make sure it won't cause the new paint to peel. Many times it is not that hard to strip the paint off those panels. The clear will often come off with the use of compressed air.

I would strip it, spray it with epoxy primer, and then repaint.

Aaron is correct.. you need to remove the problem, or you ss could peel.. It could be the ecoat..you dont know what is making it delaminate.. but you dont want that to happen again

THank you all for the info. The hood is perfect as far as dents/bodywork go....just that the clearcoat has been eaten away in spots. I am kinda new to painting so I'll ask this.....If I strip it to bare metal and then coat it with some epoxy (Ive got some SPI epoxy here) can I paint the the single stage urethane right over the epoxy without using a sandable 2K primer between the epoxy and the single stage urethane? Thx.

Epoxy is great to paint right over... You will more than likely need to sand the epoxy so that your sand scratches are filled in and then put one wet coat on as a sealer coat if you will.. Now your scratches from sanding are filled and you have a non sanded coat on there, that will not need to be sanded before you paint... With spi you have a 7 day window.. meaning you can spray the epoxy and have 7 days to paint over it before you need to sand the epoxy
