Does the old super twist need CP on it or can it just be epoxied over.

No thread needs CP.

It is entirely up to the user and the final appearance that one wishes to have with the thread.

Do a test wrap with and without CP, and come to your own conclusion about the look that you prefer.

CP does nothing for structural integrity. It is all about the different thread appearance that one gets with some threads with CP applied.

Good luck
