Re: 15.

i found a solution to pinholes - right near the end of my build of course... roll on the high build epoxy and then quickly (while its still very runny, before it goes tacky) run a steel hand trowel or a rubber squeegee over the surface lightly as if your gently squeegeeing a window free from water.....
