driving around in epoxy?

Is a couple of good coats of epoxy good enough to drive a car around on for a while? By a while I mean a few months.

If You are using the SPI i know that will be ok...you will have to sand and reshoot before going to final paint..Does not mean sanding all the way to bare metal again though..The areas on the underside that are not exposed to UV will be fine..I personally can understnad the sentiment here as we get tired of working on these things and want to have some fun in the interim..

OK guy's you have all been a big help. Now I need to take my question a bit further. I am going to have to buy some patch panels and do some other body work after I prime this thing. What do I do about door/trunk seals and stuf like that? I have removed them to make sure there is no rust hiding behind them. They mostly didn't survive. I am afraid to install new ones now because they will likely get damaged removing them for finish paint. Can I not cut in the trunk and door openings with BC/CC now and install the new seals and then mask all that off for final paint later? I will leave the chrome off until after final paint.

The rubber gaskets were probably glued at one time or another during their history or just may have deteriorated over time due to their age. Your new rubber gaskets would not suffer the same fate if they were installed and later removed to accomodate repairs.

Anyways, yes you could cut in your jambs now if you wish. It's basically your call with what your comfortable with.

Sam is right, in fact I drove around last summer in SPI Epoxy I got from sam, now this winter Im blowing my coupe apart for paint in march. Will give it the last blocking, then a fresh coat of epoxy to seal and then BC/CC, roll out this spring all fresh and new. during my summer fun, I made a list of stuff I did not like about the car and can address them all before paint.
