Well, most times I do as long as I don't see any wear or staining on my epoxy. If I do, I'll sand, then do a thinned down "sealer" coat of epoxy and head into the poly. The longer the period that I have driven the vehicle in sunlight also pushes me to do that extra epoxy sealer coat as all the chemical guys I have ever talked to say that sunlight begins to breakdown epoxies. When I built my Superstepside truck I drove it for about 8 months and incoporated that extra epoxy seal coat into the schedule.
