plastic filler over Dupont epoxy paint

I sandblasted then primed my motorbike with Dupont epoxy primer. Overall I am pleased. Some drips and sags 1 on the tank and 1 on the front headlamp faring. Small drips on the underside of the frame. Sanding will be difficult. Can I apply plastic filler,glazing compound to even out the surface? Is there a specific temperature required when doing the bodywork? Does the top coat need to be done right away or can it wait till spring its well under 50 degrees here now.

Some tips

The temp of the metal should be above 55-60 degrees..use a razor scraper to work the runs and it may require a bit of sanding and respray on thoes areas..plastic filler and glaze does work over the epoxy..As long as you have a warm place to paint it can be done all winter..Once you are outside the recoat window on the epoxy then it will require a lite sanding to give the surface some "tooth" to accept the next coat of paint..

Good Luck
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
