Xenon try brushing on a highly thinned layer of epoxy , let it get tacky then stick the cloth to it . Let that set up for a while , then brush on another less thinned layer over it .

Pencon, you think this method is a better option than the spray glue? have you tried both ways? I'm just a little wary about using too much resin (infact wary about using it at all after the last effort)

Try a test on a irregular shaped piece of scrap foam.
Which epoxy are you using?

Be sure to vacuum all dust from the foam. It will delaminate if you dont.

It's the Z-poxy finishing resin. I did dust down the sufrace and wiped with isopropanol before I started.

I've done the 3m77 misting a few times but did notice it letting go once wetted down with epoxy . I haven't tried the other method yet but have read about it and I think it has to work . I'll find out once I get around to doing mine .

All I've ever used was this::

635 Thin Epoxy Resin System
http://www.uscomposites.com/epoxy.html
4:1 Ratio Fast Epoxy Hardener

Did my F-86F fuse , the Scorpion and now I'll use it for the F-18. I don't get to nuts, the most I ever buy is 1/2 gal at a time.

+1 on what Cooler said, I use the same 635 but the medium at 3-1, just to get more working time, I have used it for a number of applications with great success.

If you get a couple of bubbles after it's all set up just cut them out and sand over them , the filler will hide them
