Re: Barrier coat or just bottom paint

Can't help but think of that exchange when these issues are raised. Tons of opinion, very little real evidence, occasional anecdotes. Just because you've made it this far, says nothing. If you smoke without cancer for 20 years, should one not stop?
I have no idea whether barrier is absolutely necessary. When I last scrapped down to zero, I was faced with the same decision. This is the way I came down on it. If I took a pass and learned to regret it, I would kick myself. If I apply it and don't get blisters, I may have wasted money, but will never know.
Which is the better bet that I'm okay? It wasn't that hard to decide to apply a coat.
