It's not the end of the world guys. On a large project you could let it set for months sanded flat. Then get it all ready to go and like a tack rag you run it over it and blow it off wipe it down and tack it, no big deal.

As I said in my first post I will sometimes hit a panel with a scuff pad and re-tack if I let it set overnight. Only takes a couple mins.

Speaking of which...Where the hells BK been ,I haven't seen anything posted by him in quite a while...he must be spending all day on the hotline and mixing up primer,I guess he dont have time for us any more ...I kinda miss the old farts internet personality..

Thats true..if your within the window.If theres no body work to be done many times after stripping I'll go right to paint after the epoxy if the texture is slick enough ..The factories dont sand at all but on the other hand weve all seen the dodge peelers ,every one I've redone had shiny epoxy underneath ,it looks to me like they missed the window
