verifying my steps

read a whole bunch but just want to triple check my steps
went to bare metal, applied 2 coats spi epoxy, applied 3 coats slicksand
sanded off most the slicksand with 180, hit epoxy in a few small spots, hit down to metal by accident (really small) and covered those spost with more epoxy as shown.

As far as I've read before I sand with 220 & 320 I should be spraying another three coats of primer now right?
I only have a quart of slicksand left for the doors so should I buy more slicksand or switch to a urethane primer?
After my next three coats, do I start sanding with 180 or start with the 220 paper I bought.



here you can see a tiny spot of guide coat I never got to right above the epoxy spot, besides near my edges/under trim, this was the only spot of guide coat left on this side of the car.

If the body is pretty straight now ( meets your approval) then using more slicksand I think would just be overkill, and require a lot more sanding. But if it is neccasary than do so. You could go over the 180 with a good urethane primer, or if you have more spi epoxy you could even use that right over the slick sand. I have been doing all my blocking with the spi epoxy and have stopped using the spray poly all together. After you spray the primer ( what ever you chose) then you can start blocking with 220, just to knock it down quick then move to 320, then 400 or 600.

Dennis is right...slick sand, feather fill, at this stage of the game and most stages, it's overkill. The SPI Epoxy may not fill as well as slick sand but you have a much more stable substrate to paint over and that could avoid potential problems down the road.
