Just finished up the last project using the epoxy in place of the 2K primer. This was my first time doing it this way and wanted to see for myself how it would work. First off all my "heavy bodywork" is finished with poly primer, so by the time I am ready for the epoxy its basically used to "seal" off the poly as a barrier over that. I will block out the epoxy (3 coats) then I am ready to topcoat after that. Pretty much just using the 2K or epoxy as a fine tune blocking after the final blocking of poly. The drawback to doing this is with 3 coats of epoxy it takes a while to cure before it is ready to block. As with a good 2K it can easily be done the next day. So as mentioned earlier if time is an issue then replacing the 2K with epoxy could slow down the process. Figured I would mention this as I have just tried it.
