Panel epoxy primer question

I have sanded down the undercoat and paint from the inner wheelhouse, and will scuff or remove the edp coating from the underside of my new outer wheelhouse. The question I have is, should I just paint those and any hidden interior surfaces with an epoxy paint to seal them or use something else? If so what brand on epoxy primer should I get? What kind of surface prep would I need, remove all loose rust or apply a rust killer first?

Thanks

Re: Panel epoxy primer question

If its not a factory correct restoration then I'd use a direct to metal product. I used Chassis Saver on mine and the results were great. Its damn tough stuff and looks good.

I use SPI epoxy

Scuff hard to reach areas with a red scotch brite
The rest can be done with 80 grit on a DA or by hand
Wire wheel any rust or spot blast
Clean real good let dry for 30 min and shoot epoxy

Re: Panel epoxy primer question

That actually sounds pretty good, but I was trying to give it more of a factory correct build, at least that's the plan for now!

I think that's what I will do, I just need to find somewhere that sells it.
