Can EDP coated replacement body panles be expected to take a coat of paint without early failure?
I am replacing a large number of body parts including new floors and rear inner quarter panels all of which is coated with EDP. I have checked the black (EDP) coating by applying Lacquer thinner over it, letting it set, then wiping over it and nothing comes off.
BUT, I need to know before I add any other paint over it; What Can It Be Painted with? Will it hold up over the long term? Is there ANY type paint I should avoid applying over the EDP surface?

So I was looking around and I found two sites that you can take a look at and see if this helps.

In short you should sand the EDP down some, since it is greasy. Then you can spray it.
Hope the site's below help you.
