Southern Poly Epoxy

I am going to spray Southern Epoxy Primer this weekend (if it gets here on time). I was wondering if anyone could give me a good starting point for pressure, gun set up etc. I also noticed that in the tech sheets, it said to sand after 7 days, or paint before 7 days. I know that with a full time job and bodywork, there is no way I will be ready to spray in less than 7 days. If I need to resand it, what should I scuff it with? Can I use scotchbrite? If I put down 2 coats initially and then filler over it, do I need to spray it again after scuffing and if it has cured for more than 7 days. Utopia would be spray seal coat, do body work, let sit more than 7 days and scuff and seal with 2K high build. What does yall think? Barry or Randy must know this one.

***********************************************
For the epoxy I use my base gun-Sata 1.4 RP.
1.4 or 1.5 is a good tip for this epoxy.
Air pressure will be about the same a any base the RP I spray with 28lbs coming to gun. depending on gun anywhere from 25-40lbs- any pressure so the epoxy lays like you want it to.

Can I use scotchbrite? -
************************************************
Yes, a red scotchbrite.

You can scuff and go straight to primer after seven days, but if you do this, scuff with a 180 by hand real fast over panel to be safe.

What I wrote above DOES not apply to all epoxy's! Ron ask about SPI and these answers were for SPI only, and may not work on other products.
