I would not. The electro primer that's put on isnt the best. It's also always best to use a full paint system that's known to work together.

I've never had issues with leaving it on however you sometimes find with heritage panels that there is rust trails beneath the primer.

If there is any doubt, just remove it.

If you do leave it on, then dry flat it to remove imperfections and cover any bare areas with primer after.

I tend to sand with a random orbital sander with 400grit and then prime over the top of the lot.

 

Cheers

Ben
