The problem Ive had with covering over the pin holes is when they get hot in the truck Ive had some bubble the top coat. I had an old one on my bench for a while like that so I cut the bubble off and nothing. At least not to the naked eye . So I sanded and sure enuogh there was some under the primer. As for foiling I use leaf products and they show up more cause it is really thin.
This post has gone on for a long time I hope all who read this dont get discouraged and not try it. There is so much good in the posts that you should be able to cut alot off the learning curve. Come on and buy some resin and some rtv and join in it is really not that hard. Thank You all for reading.

Frank... your resin will bubble your paint if you paint your part right after you cast it or you dont give it time to cure.. It takes time for it to cure. I have had this talk with alot of guys in the past about this...then I remember a talk with Mickey at 3:16. One time told me he heats his baits up before he paints them...At the time I wasnt making baits but I did put that in the memory bank. I use to wait 2 weeks before I painted them just for fear of the bubbles. But I have found the best methond is this..
Put them in a oven set at 150 to 200 degrees for about 1 hour or so. I believe your gasin out the resin. or helping it cure.. plus it seems like the next time your baits get in heat they hold up and dont bubble because they were already that hot before.. Just my theory and it has worked for me so far.
