To strip or not to strip......

good afternoon...

I have dove in and am working on my first project..I have a 66 swb that i am doing a resto mod on...im replacing the rockers, toe kicks etc now but have a question regarding paint prep. Truck is in good shape considering its 52 years old...its a cali, truck i had shipped to me in Illinois...I am going to paint black/high gloss, so i know how important the prep work is to have a straight truck...My question is, it looks as if the truck as been painted before, but has no peeling etc at all...do i need to strip this down to bare metal or can i just run the DA on it to rough up and shoot it with High build? or what steps do you recommend...Im planning to paint with Tamco paints and use their High build as well...Ill try to attach a pic so you can see condition of paint.

Thanks!
Chad

Re: To strip or not to strip......

Unless the paint is coming off because of rust or other damage there's no need to remove all the paint to get to bare steel.

If and when you do get to bare steel because of rust or other damage you should apply an epoxy primer.

Por15 is NOT epoxy primer.

After you have applied epoxy primer, you can put whatever you want on top of it because the rest is just window dressing.

Re Tamco Paints:
What made you decide to use Tamco Paints?
