Earling, could you elaborate on your epoxy rub-in process? How do you apply the epoxy, rag, sponge, brush, finger, etc? What steps do you take to apply the epoxy.

Thanks again!
If that reading was taken with a IR thermometer, then most likely it is inaccurate, as IR pickups dont work well with shiny metal.... I use a nitrile gloved hand... dip the fingertips in the epoxy.....rub the entire area like your messaging your wife's....uhhhmmmm shoulders....Then wipe the area with a sheet of paper towel...... Do all this under a IR heat lamp,as it will cause the epoxy to thin, and easier will rub in...... I will hang a picture a bit later, of a mould that I had to fix, after it was partially destroyed during a cast.
