You mentioned West Systems:

For straight epoxy are you suggesting 105 Epoxy Resin with 206 Slow Hardener? Giving a 20 min pot life, 90 min working time and a 10 hr cure.

Could I also assume you would suggest the same Epoxy with the 406 Colloidal Silica filler to fill the area?

Sorry to get specific, but I don't like to make a shopping mistake

As far as faring compounds, what would you suggest? I see West Systems also has a low density filler as a faring additive. 407 Low-Density Filler.

Would you suggest that or another faring compound?

I'll still like to go with the InterProtect 2000e barrier coat all around with VC-17M regardless of the epoxy, fairing and filler underneath unless there is something I'm over looking.

Your thoughts and insights would be greatly appreciated.
