strip new 2k for epoxy

i primed almost half my car with acrylic urathane high build primer on bare metal, after reading everyones recomended use of epoxy on bare metal, should i strip the car of the newly primed areas and re prime with epoxy primer? im not sure if i should do that or just finish priming with urathane?

What kind of car is it? Is she a keeper? If you plan to keep it for longer than a few years I would definately redo it starting with an epoxy primer. It is a lot easier to start over at this stage than to restrip the whole car after paint. Some urethane primers are better than others but none offer the adhesion, durability, and moisture resistance of an epoxy. Read up, do some searches on epoxy primer, determine how long you need this job to last, then decide from there I guess. Bob

You'll need at least 4 quarts of sprayable epoxy for the exterior surfaces, you'll need to apply two medium wet coats over the bare metal then apply your urethane surfacer primer. Wear a good mask and spray with good ventilation with all of these products- watch your health! Southern Polyurethanes Inc. is an option for the primers and clear.

I guess you already have the primer. I was going to suggest using a polyurethane primer like Feather Fill 2 or Slick Sand if your planning on doing ALOT of blocking.
A couple of coats and you can level that baby right out without having to keep reapplying regular 2k stuff.JMO.

Instead of slicksand you could use Featherfill 2G, this is a little finer product and will spray out of a 1.7 tip OK. Great stuff IMO, absolutely no shrinkage, sands nice, and available in three colors. It sells for $38-$65 per gallon in this area. You can paint directly over it. Featherfill 2G
