How the **** did you get the epoxy to come out so nicely?
I guess you could wet sand it starting with low grit and working up, and then polish it. Impressive results.
What brand/type of clear epoxy did you use?
Every dog has it's day I guess! The thicker center of the repair has clouded up a bit after being outside all day yesterday, so I wouldn't be surprised if it clouds up more as time goes on. Even so, it appears quite solid -- the overall goal is to seal the cracks, so it's still a victory.
I used Gorilla epoxy -- it was the cheaper one at the store. I've used J.B. Weld before as fill for an inside cracked wood threshold, and that hasn't clouded years later. Maybe a different brand wouldn't have clouded, but I'm guessing it can't be avoided with outside weather.
As to your question, I did about 4 separate applications. I've only worked with epoxy as filler a couple of times -- for those the epoxy naturally thins after it was applied, so it leveled itself and dried crystal clear (you can see a drip going across the top of it.) The car wasn't getting used for a while, so I could take lots of time to let each layer dry. At least several hours for each.
