my ONLY CONCERN WOULD BE THE ADHESION POLY SITS ON TOP A SURFACE AND IN THEORY YOU COULD PEEL IT OFF LIKE A SHEET BUT I NEVER SEEN THIS I WOULD SAY AS LONG AS YOUR AS YOUR POLY IS CURED FOR A WEEK OR TWO GO FOR IT BUT I WOULD CURE IT JUST IN CASE THE SOLVENTS IN THE EXPOXY ARE STRONGER THAN MINERAL SPIRITS

I have never done it, but the epoxy I used in this bar can be used over poly:

A few comments down in the post I give a link to the instructions.
Check out the directions and see if it fits your needs.
