Just for the record also I would never recommend using epoxy I replace 2k high build if you use high build primer. Like stated by me and several others. If you have a product you like, that provides adequate outcome for your projects then by all means continue to use them. I prefer to use products that I can stake my reputation on. Because my reputation is my advertisement. I don't want a customer to come back in six months wanting to know why the paint is falling off his car or for someone to see it and ask who made that mess. I place a lot of pride in my work and therefore I use high quality products that I know will last. That's not always the cheapest way to go but I can sleep well at night knowing I will have work to do tomorrow.
I will not come back after this Kelly. I am afraid I will appear to be overly defensive. I knew Mike (deadbodyman) had done this. When I ordered the material I asked Barry at SPI what he thought about this and he advised the epoxy is tougher than the 2k primer and said I could do it without fear. He would have not approved a questionable proceedure.
