I lost the first epoxy fight of the year today and need to vent.

I had a lot of fish eyes in this batch andplaces it wouldn't cover, so I did a second coat which usually works and levels it all out but now they look like they have cellulite.. not sureif I try a 3rd coat or if that will just make it worse at this point.

Also I have been using the testors aztek paints as I had picked some up at michaels last year and had good luck with them. I tried a pink flourescent this year that sprayed/looked great but apparently I had some type of reaction with the sys 3 clearcoat. The 2 white mackerel plugs matched the pink one before I epoxied them and i had heat set them. They looked fine when I put them on the spinner but came back 4 hours later and they were white mackerel. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

I hit the remaining pink plugs Id painted with a rustoleum clear coat that I used to use as a scratch coat. I hope that saves the rest of them.
