I have a wooded door that I made and coated with West Systems epoxy.

it road last year pretty good but recently got a belt sander so I thought I'd feather the edges a little better.

I didnt touch the bottom but the top still has some epoxy exposed where the sander didn't need to do any work.

do I need to get more west systems stuff or would marine poly eurathane stick to the epoxy?

hoping to save some time and jsut get a couple of coats of poly a d call it good

Marine polyurethane sticks well to West System epoxy. You're actually supposed to use it for UV protection as the epoxy is not UV resistant alone.

I use MinWax spar on all my wood boards. You won't find a good spar urethane for under $20. Boat shops sell the good stuff ~$40/can!!
