Ive tried looking and always get stuck into a huge debate looking for a straight answer hopefully.

Epoxy primer, can paint/ body work within 6 days. After the 6 days, does it need to be rough sanded, or sanded back to bare metal for body work to be done over it.

To be certain, why not contact the manufacturer of the epoxy? I remember different manufacturers had different time frames for top coat and body work.

Who manufactured the epoxy?

What is the time frame to top coat epoxy?
Top coat with more epoxy or 2K primer up to 7 days wo sanding. Top coat with base or single stage wo sanding within 24hrs

Get a tech sheet for epoxy you are using, sometimes you can find online. Product I use has 24 hr window but I'll scuff it up with 80-180 grit before filler. I most often do filler before 24 hr window to get chemical/mechanical bond.
