    Hello, I spoke with Evercoat tech support, he advised that when I apply the Uro-fill, there is no need for another coat of epoxy primer, as the Uro-fill acts as a sealer and will be easier to sand then the epoxy primer. What are your thoughts?
    Thank you!!

    Okay thank you. One of the reasons for the epoxy is that I live in Canada, so high humidity and crazy temp changes are the norm. Also, once the high build is applied and the final block sanding is done, if i sand through the highbuild, the epoxy will prevent from exposing bare metal. another question, I have two high builds, both from Evercoat, one is a polyester (finish sand), the other is the urethane (uro fill). Any thoughts?

    Thank you again, and will call tech line shortly!!

    Hello, I was hoping to pick your knowledge base regarding epoxy primer over filler. Here is what I have done so far, and what my thoughts are. I had the truck/panels sandblasted, cleaned thoroughly, sprayed 2x with epoxy primer. Bondo filler filler applied, block sanded. At this stage, during the block sanding I have gone down to bare metal in some spots. Before I shoot with high build, i was wanting to re-apply epoxy (to cover the bare metal), then shoot the high build and go from there. Do you see anything wrong with this? and do you have any words of wisdom?

    thank you for your time!!

    I have no idea.......I looked at the admin panel and it says I closed it. I did not, as a metter of fact I hadnt even looked at the thread until now. This has happened once before with me. I think its a glitch in the software or something. I reopened it.

    Good morning Brian.
    I'd like to get your opinion on some bodywork and paint that I've gotten an estimate for on my wife's 2013 Jetta wagon. The bodyshop claims they have to hire a glass shop to come out and remove the small back window in the photo and have them come back and reinstall it after they've painted it. They also want to remove all the chrome molding along the roof line. I can understand them wanting to paint the whole rear bumper and quarter panel, rocker and roof line above the doors all the way to the windshield to keep from having to blend the paint but it seems removing the window seems a little excessive. The quote I got for fixing the small dents by the tail light and paint, including R&R-ing the window is a little over $1400.. I know paint is expensive but it doesn't seem there's really a need for taking the window out etc.. Whadya think?
