As mentioned elsewhere, I chose the Epifanes two pot scheme for finishing – I hate to think what the total paint bill was, but I don’t expect any maintenance for a while
The base is the epoxy primer, which fills very well, and doesn’t really need sanding between coats, as long as you don’t leave it too long.
After the first coat, you should be able to see if anything needs filling/smoothing, after which a second coat is a good idea
By now, things should be looking good, with all the clinker lines looking smooth, ready for the topcoat
