    I just defretted my bass and want to use Envirotex Lite epoxy to coat the fingerboard. How do I so this? Do I use a brush and brush it on? Do I pour it on, and if so how do I spread it? How long does it take to cure?

  2. How thick is this epoxy?

    If it is very fluid, it might be an advantage to pour it on the fretboard, as it would make a smooth surface and reduce the amount of sanding you have to do.

    If its thick like the epoxy i've been working with recently:
    Brush on - Let dry - sand until smooth - and repeat the process until your desired finish is acheived. To get a glossy look with this method, you would have to buff up the epoxy afterwards.

    BTW, you dont have to use a brush. A putty knife, or even a sheet of relativetly thick paper would work.
