I have heard alot of pros and cons, but I truley believe it is the prep you do prior to painting that matter when it comes to the pain sticking. I snad plasted mine even after a lot of people said NOOOOOOOOO. no damage was done at all. I did have to rip everything out of my interior to get all the beads out but I knew I had to replace my carpet.
I would say if you could do it it is the best way to get rid of the old paint, and then start your prep, you will be fine
