IN little Briggs, big problem posting noted my trouble with JB Weld, and hadn't heard back. Maybe was just missed or lost in shuffle?  The stuff is rock hard now, but not filled where I want for sure. Question being can I just mix more and go over the orig patch w/out doing anything to it? Would think grinding or sanding would just make dust you never get completely out and thinking the orig surface will be cleanest.   What think?  Sure hope I don't have to clean it ALL back off and redo!  See my post in that other area.

I've done multiple coats of JB but I always sand it. At least get rid of the shiney finish.

Layer over it and just expand the amount a little bit each time. Let us know how it works out. Good luck.                                                         Roger

I always sand it before putting another coat on.That way you can see where it's needed a little easier.I've used multiple coats.
