Double R Restorations

I don't think todays edp coating is as good as it was back in the day. A lot of it will come off with lacquer thinner. For quality restoration work most people strip it and apply at least two coats of epoxy primer. That is what I'm planning to do.

Rub it aggressively with lacquer thinner and if any of it comes off on the rag then strip it to bare metal and epoxy prime. If none comes off then scuff the entire panel with 80 grit and then epoxy prime.
