I would be all for Epoxy resin as long as I knew it would adhere to the SMC. I noticed in the last picture posted that fiberglass cloth was being used. Cloth is necessary when using epoxy because the binder in matt doesnt disolve properly with polyester resin. This leads to another question. I've always heard that you shouldnt use fiberglass cloth under finish coats due to the texture of the cloth printing through after time. Is there a special primer that will hold the texture down? I'm under the impression that polyester primers (what I was planning on using to hold down the repairs) cant be used over epoxy surfaces.
