The picture below depicts my "tiny bubbles" problem.
Using West Systems (West) 105 resin/207 hardener. I have tried rolling with foam roller, West roller, cutting up West roller and pushing it on and my latest attempt, with the least bubbles, foam brush, after very careful slow stir of the mix. Yeah, hard to believe, this is the best result so far, and I think it had more to do with the slow stir of the mix, to start with fewer bubbles in the mix.
I have lately been very careful to mix gently, to mitigate bubbles in the sauce, but still get some. I get a lot of them throughout, if I just stir away. I noticed that when I did some light fairing work and added west 404 filler, creating a fairly thin fairing compound (catsup like), I got 95% fewer bubbles in the finish. Should I add it to the finish coat? If so, to what consistency?
I have also applied with rudders hanging and rudders laying level, with similar results. I am in Tampa, with temps about 85-90 degrees during application (if that is even pertinent).
Any helpful ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have now sanded out bubbles at least four times
(last only needing 120 grit for the job). I need a nice finish coat at this point.
