Sec 14 date 5-28-2006Today I tryed a new itechnique of spreading raw epoxy resin on the cowl surface to fill pinholes and scratches before painting. I prep the inside of my upper cowl with 120 grit sand paper to clean off and lose material and remove release agent, I wiped it down with lacquer thinner, dried it with a air hose before applying the resin. I used West system 105-epoxy resin with 205 hardener. I applied the resin with a small roller to the inside surface of my cowl. After 30 minutes I used a Bondo spreader to squeegee off the excess resin. After the first coat became tacky I applied the second coat of resin and squeegee off the excess. The next day I scuffed the epoxy area with 180 grit paper and painted it with polyester primer. There are no pinholes in the surface of the inner cowl. I will use this technique on the exterior surfaces of my cowl (images) 000-399 000-402 & 000403
