To be fare ou compressor is huge But I sprayed out at 65psi

People say do not gel over epoxy,, I do, works fine for me

My first layer is a 50/50 mix resin and gel thinned with acetone sprayed for gravity gun

Then layers up before fully cured with gel acetone and styrene mix. This is all thinned to suit equipment you have to hand.

I am spoilt at this point I have free use of a quality paint shop With every set up pretty much known to man

Don't forget the catalyst. !

Yep I gel over epoxy too. Fully cured epoxy, remove the blush and key up. I did my own tests and then I found this video

The guys brill to watch http://youtu.be/GwS4YgoGFm8

Plastic padding gelcoat filler sticks good to epoxy too
