EDP coating, remove all or just scratch it?

I have purchased a fender and two boxsides for my 71 C-10 project and wonder if I need to remove all the black EDP coating before laying down my epoxy primer? About 1/4 of the bedsides are already down to bare metal where I shaved the marker lights and stake pockets. Also what about the backside of the new parts; I planned on epoxy, then urethane build primer and paint just like the exterior, so should those hidden areas be sanded down to metal also?

we don't remove it from new parts. I'd just sand and then epoxy. Its easy to go through the coating in areas if you are machine sanding and not scuffing, so it normally gets primed. You could probably even paint right over sanded ecoat on inner areas if you wanted if you didn't go through. But Taiwan parts sometimes will come with a cheap black primer on it rather then a e coat. Wipe it with some lacquer thinner and if it doesn't remove it, I then think you will be fine sanding and epoxy. Some 320-ish dry and a scuff pad for hard areas, epoxy seal, paint should be plenty good for inner areas for most. Some probably just use a scuff pad the inner areas though. If you spray those inner areas soon enough, don't have anything to fix there, and get the epoxy to lay out well, then you could shoot your paint without sanding them again.

That is what I figured, because body shops can't spend all that time sanding off e coat. I agree, build primer on the backside of the parts is probably overkill too. I have had good luck with my epoxy finish, so I can probably just paint over that after a scuff. Thanks!
