Not at all, really. I just thought I could learn something new about good quality epoxy primers that aren't overpriced. Guess not.The last time I used epoxy on my car, it was Lesonal. The same brand as the basecoat color. A more relevant question might be what brand is LATECH using.
What does "same brand" as the base coat have to do with the epoxy.
L.A. I post a lot about epoxy primer because its THE most important part of a quality job. You want a good solid foundation to build on and not have it fail after you've spent a bunch of time and money. You've been a member long enough to know what epoxy to use if you choose to buy shopline all I can say is, its your labor and money.
leaving that e coated unknown primer is a chance for a problem to occur sanding it off is a sure way NOT to have that happen regardless of what the production shop guys say. Here's a good rule to remember when using aftermarket panels
If the panel says "made in China" sand the primer off its not good quality.
