Did you NOT read my post,
Primer and poly will not FILL pinholes!!!!!!
The air from the GUN will PUSH it back OUT and won't fill jack or simply "cover" them up.WHY? Because they are "thick" and you NEED to "push" them INTO the pit. Otherwise,your just wasting product.
I've used Epoxy,G2 Poly and STILL had micro pin holes BECAUSE the AIR pushed the "product" back OUT of the hole.
The ONLY way to fill them is with a glaze filler or like I did initally with the poly while still wet and took a spreader and worked it like glaze. Just didn't get them ALL and found out after blocking the "mess".Yeah, it WAS ugly but I got the majority of them FILLED with the poly after seeing all the tiny "volcanos" left after the inital epoxy coats.
I got the PROOF out in my shop NOW.
I got tired of this B.S.and glazed the whole friggin scoop tonight and FILLED every little one of these PITA little bums.
I'll block it down and epoxy once more for the time being and then,600 sand and paint and BE DONE with this little nightmare.
