If I go thru the glass while sanding I patch with a piece of light glass if it is on wood. On foam I put on some epoxy and move on if it it not in a high traffic critical area. If so I patch with a piece of light glass,

I actually brushed this on. I have tried rolling but found brushing works better as you can work it into the small holes better. I don’t know how thick it is . I put it on heavy as most of it will be sanded off anyway. This is just a filler for small irregularities and to identify where additional fairing will be required. I use it because it is so easy to sand and thin enough to fill small holes.

Maybe a real dumb question - Did you spray the spray fair or roll it?

from the pictures it looks like you rolled it on........................
Thanks for asking; I assumed you HAD to spray it!
