Hey Barry:

what will be the best, tool and grit to sand down the epoxy run on my B Pillar?
it looks to be 1/32" or better.
this has been a learning experience But the Primer was very forgiving of my Ignorance ans stupidity.
After I smooth the car Run, dent, ETC.. and shoot the Turbo2K
do you recommend applying one last coat of Epoxy over that
or just lay the color and clear?

That epoxy sands really good after about 12 hours, the run should come out pretty easy with just 180 dry by hand. (DA 180 if real big)

You do not need to put the epoxy over the 2K but it is an option if you want to.

Use some 240 to hit it with first and finish it off with some 320.
Just spot shoot some more epoxy over the repair if you sand thru.
A paint stick with paper wraped around it will give you a nice tool.
The primer is going to cover most all of the problems with finish in the epoxy,so don't sweat the small stuff. The epoxy is just the protector for the bare metal,the 2k is the foundation of your paint job.

As for the extra epoxy on top of the 2K,Not necessary IMO,Block your 2k till your happy with it,let it sit a couple of day's and RECHECK EVERYTHING, Blocking,missed scratch's ,missed ANYTHING. Like badbod said earlier,Go over the entire car with 2-3 gray scotchbrit's stacked to get rid of any sand scratch's. Final wipe it GOOD and get ready for the next day's shoot.
Blow it down good and tack it, spray your sealer and start your paint.

Use the prime'ing as a warm up for the paint shoot. It's better to get yourself and your equipment lined out with primer than with the paint.
Hose too short/long,junk stacked in your way,Playboy centerfold loose on the wall,"What do I need a ladder for?", You get the idea.

I'm sure Barry will be along to slap my hand and give you ALL the CORRECT dope.

Its a 77 Impala so there is lots of learning experience to be gained with the priming.
Barry thanks for the response and info
I really like the Epoxy I still havent fgured how it Hardens thicker than I shoots.
I will deffinitly use a ladder for the next shoot, I'm 6'2" and spraying the roof was quite a chalenge
