So after 4 years im done with cutting and welding and its time to put my baby back together. What is the recommended way to strip old paint and primer. I struggled for about 2 hours tonight on the trunk lid to get the old paint off. The primer underneath was the hardest. I tried flap discs, chemical paint remover, the hard spongy cup brush, and finally sand paper on a body block. Getting down to the old primer was easy but getting that off was a challenge. I finally gave up and blocked it relatively smooth with 120 grit. I then sprayed a few coats of epoxy primer on it. I can still see the areas where I didnt get all the old primer off. Is this something that will be taken care of with high build primer or do I need to take it down to bare metal. My plan is to drive the car for a short time in epoxy primer before sending it off to get painted this winter. You can see in the picture the areas that still have old primer on it (different color). Thanks again for the help.
