    Re: Polystyrene Plug but what epoxy to coat it?

    you can find a hard shell spray at demand products, decent price. I've made the mistake of not using this product before on my buck and went the other route, which set me back 3 months.

    be careful with the epoxy you use. Polystyrene can heat up underneath, and send air bubbles to the top, creating irregularities. You should have used polyurethane, it would have cost slightly more, but it would have allowed you to use different types of epoxy. Just a heads up, I suggest you go buy a piece of polystyrene, a few pieces actually, and coat a 1'x1' section with different epoxy's, to see how it reacts to it.

    Good luck,
    by the way, who milled your parts?
