Yes, actually i sanded down the entire side as i was getting it ready for varnish and it was not smooth after the last epoxy coat and really needing to be smoothed out. I wanted to do the majority of the sanding while it was flat.

Mike, this is debbie and i knew nothing about epoxy until this build. I got all my info from Steve Fredrick's shop manual on teardrop building. Randy doesn't do finish work so all the epoxy and varnish or poly finish as well as sanding was my job.

Debbie, thanks I'll look into Steve's manual. By the looks of it, you did a great job without Randy.
