Filler Marks After Top Coat


So I stripped my front door, sanded smooth, filled (repair care, decor fill), primed,gras a lacquer,undercoat,sanded super smooth and then on with the gloss and, erm I can see where I filled edged in white. All looked fine with the undercoat and as soon as I glossed they really pop out :roll_eyes:. Should I sand and apply a second top coat? Or fill again?

Hi yes, sand and repaint, if its really bad,you may need to undercoat, two pack can flash, so use a good primer like ottex,hope it helps.

Thanks Darlic, it’s not terrible so hopefully sand and repaint well do it.

Thanks for posting glad to help, looks great,what gloss did you use?

I’d say you got a good gloss finish on that, nice :+1:one.


Thanks :grinning: I used weathershield with owatrol and a purdy monarch elite. I was going to use sikkens rubbol as recommended on this forum however I don’t know enough about it and the chap at shop convinced me otherwise. I hope it holds up because I don’t want to have to redo it any time soon, was fun but a lot of work.

Out of curiosity what was the reasoning from the seller about Weathershield over Rubbol?

Ahh to be honest I can’t remember because I bought he paint ages ago. Probably because I’m naive and it’s better to sell me 3 tins of paint instead of 2.
