    Or you could just spray some epoxy primer in there till it runs out the bottom. Then cavity wax it and you'll never have anything to worry about.

    Epoxy shrinks over time. I've seen that in my mixing cup. Would not be a good way to do it. I'm hoping I can get seam sealer to stick after cavity waxing that little bit where the epoxy has been burned off.

    Yep, so does every other primer, base, clear and single stage. I see it in mixing cups for all of them every day. I have done this countless times without issue. As long as you don't leave any bare metal exposed, you'll be fine.

    Yes this repair would only work where the skin is being replaced, therefore you would prep the shell prior to the skin being installed. I like the idea of using cavity wax also.
