I wouldn't use the por product.
In the area past your window gasket, I would use a polyester glazing putty (spread like bondo) over the sanded epoxy and then block sand the glazing to smooth out the surface where those pits are. Then spray a 2K urethane primer over the glazing and do a final blocking.
(Sandpaper wrapped around a paint stirring stick cut to about 3 inches long works well for blocking out small areas like this.) Block your glazing with 120 then 180 grit dry and your urethane primer with 400 wet.
