Thought up an easy "real world" test for you to prove epoxy/filler is better than sanded steel/filler.

Make 2 steel mudflaps, do one with, one without, post the results on your web site after ? miles.

That's what I'm looking for, better impact resistance, gladly put a skim coat of filler on the epoxy on the front valance, lower rear qtrs, etc.
There really is no reason.
This over the years has been tested and retested to death.
This is not new ground or a new Idea at all.
This has been done since the early 70's.
A pretty safe statement to make is, if you find a full time restorer or rod builder of quality this is their process.
Rarely do I go into one that does not apply the epoxy first.

That panel test gives you adhesion, flexibility and impact tests all in one.
