Help with sealer

O.k I have epoxied over bare metal; done filler; epoxied over filler then did three coats of SPI 2k primer and finally sealed with SPI epoxy with couple shots of reducer. I sanded between every process and w/g removed before next process. The vehicle is slick but have one little spot that I missed filler on what can I do besides fill, prime, seal. Can I use something to fix one spot and then base over it. Also I have a section that is full of pinholes from what I believe is solvent. Can I use some type of glaze or ice then just go with base. I'm out of epoxy so I hope I can get out of this jamb.

You'll will have to finish the glaze out to 600 and dust some base over it first.
WIll it work? MAYBE.....Depends on the base.
You NEED to either use epoxy or primer over the glaze as it will suck it up and ghost till you get it sealed.Usually 2 coats.
Yeah,it sucks when this happens but "if" you want the best possiable paint job out of this,You need to glaze up the holes,block,prime,block and reseal.
You did not say if the epoxy and primer are the same or close in color. How is your window on the epoxy?
Personally,If your using epoxy as the sealer,I'd get more,red scuff pad the whole car and reshoot the reduced epoxy again or use a dedicated sealer after you get these hickeys fixed and covered.
