Is scuffing epoxy tough? Will it work on cast where you can only hit the high spots well? Can you recoat with epoxy without scuffing?

Scuffing is ok for small parts, will take some effort on a whole tractor. The way I do it is to prepare the surface, then apply epoxy and topcoat the same or the next day. In my mind you have to get the parts clean before the first application of epoxy, if you have time to apply the epoxy, at that point there is no reason not to topcoat or apply surfacer. At the moment I have a bunch of sand blasted or wire wheeled parts. When I am ready I will make sure they are clean, then use epoxy and topcoat them. Where I live I don't get rust, if I do it is minimal and easily removed. To sum, it is the preparation that takes the time, the painting goes fast. As to whether or not you can reapply without scuffing, no -- or go by what the spec sheet says. The more expensive epoxies have a longer window. The length of time you can go without scuffing and reapplying is their only "advantage", far as I'm concerned.
