Before you apply epoxy:
a) use low grit sandpaper to rough up the surface you gonna put epoxy over
b) clean the surface with acetone
Use epoxy with highest elasticity
If the gauge is deep (epoxy layer becomes more than ~1/8" thick) add a strip (or two) of fabric to the epoxy. Apply like that: thin coat of epoxy over the gauge, lay fabric strip, another coat of epoxy so that fabric is fully saturated, continue until the gauge is filled. Epoxy is pretty brittle by itself, fabric adds elasticity.
If you wanna get fancy, you can add a powder of topskin matching color to epoxy. For example sugar powder works great for white color skis (not many of those left though).
