Actually, it IS pretty close to true!
You extracted your excerpt
from the Pettit website. What you have OMITTED to include is the introduction
paragraph on paint type compatibility. And this is what it says: "There is an old rule of thumb that says an ablative paint can go over a hard modified epoxy paint, but a hard modified epoxy paint should never be applied over an ablative. While this holds true most of the time, there are some exceptions.
I'd like to point the readers' attention to "... this holds true most of the time...."
That's prettry close to true in my books
. I think in the books
of many readers as well I will trust.
