You glassed it both inside and out 2x 7 oz cloth, which epoxy, and was that just owens corning from the big orange box store?
I was thinking of using highload 60 or even 100 for the floor and roof of mine.
I used US composites 635 thin 3:1 I didn’t get much blushing. Home Depot in my area only sells formular 150 and sometimes 200. Most of my shell is 300 . Roof and floor was 300 and seems fine. I would have used 600 but it’s not used locally and no one wanted to order such a small amount.

Kerf depth seems to depend on the density of the foam. Formular 600 may be different

I was happy with the System 3 primer but if I were doing this again I would at think about think about switching over to automotive topcoat after the primer. If anyone has thoughts/ experience on this please post.
