I have a theory.....Everyone has seen those Dodge trucks peeling away.
I've done a bunch of them by simply by carefully scraping the paint off with a razor (where the paint was still on ,the epoxy was shinny underneath)Then I just sanded the old epoxy with 320 da... A little Spi epoxy as a sealer and paint...they've held up fine for years...I think the cause wasnt the paint or the epoxy...just that the epoxy sat to long at the factory (like over the weekend) and got to hard and slick for the paint to stick....All epoxy primers are definitely not equal...Way back twenty yrs or so when we were using PPG their epoxy did the same thing, slick and shinny but we never tried to use it as a sealer ...That stuff was hard to sand with 80 grit,nothing stuck to that unless it was sanded...
