You guys working in corvette shops got any better ideas?
I am working on a glass car now and every body ,the local NAPA store, the body shop people I have talk to tell me to gelcoat any spots that show bare glass this also includes the folks at PPG. I will be useing epoxy primer then 2k before I use sealer then bc/cc.
