    It is only epoxy or epoxy polyester, but it is cured - don't they recommend when painting over epoxy primer that it is done before it fully hardens? I suspect something like cellulose on an un-keyed panel wouldn't last too long?

    Used to do it all the time in the switchgear industry, everything would be powder coated grey than when assembled flatted and given a couple of coats of grey 2K.

    Redditch Powdercoaters say you can. I've painted up a few rims that I've had powdercoated and never had an issue if hit with a scotch pad first to key it.

    Same here. In fact, I've often used it as a base, then keyed, and applied a further protective coating. Usually for harsh areas like undersides of wheel arches and running boards. I've just had the arches, wings and running boards powdercoated on the undersides only, than applied U-POL Raptor bedliner onto that.

    Have painted over powder coat with various finishes and not had any problems - as long as it isn't chipped or flaking to start with.

    Painting over powder coat ?

    Possible or not ? Powder coat isn't chipped etc but needs a detail panel adding . Is powder coat an 'inert' finish?
