OneMoreTime I would block it a bit and do not use any more W&G and then shoot the epoxy..filler is kinda odd in that it will vary in density and you will get something looking like fisheyes when you shoot it..let the epoxy induce..wait a few minutes after you mix it and then shoot it..I never reduce epoxy unless it is for a final seal coat and that is only so it will lay out a bit slicker..

chas350 This is on a van door with external hinges, I am thinking that contamination caused by spray lube over the years may have been the cause.
I do wipe off the w&g remover with a dry p towel. But the filler holds it and I forgot to hit it with compressed air like I usually do, because I had a visitor.
So, should I just block it down a little and clean again, blow dry then hit it with my MS182 surfacer?
thanks guys

BarryK W&G will do that every-time, filler may have looked dry but filler is a sponge and can hold a W&G for 20-40 minutes after it looks dry depending on humidity.
That is why its not a great idea to wash filler.

mechEcwru Don't let it evaporate... Make sure you wipe it dry. I do small sections at a time and wipe it with a clean rag really good before it evaporates. If you let it evaporate the wax or grease will be left on the panel.

Only if you allowed it to evaporate rather than wiping it dry.

BarryK Did you clean the filler with wax and grease remover?
