Question Replaceing Bathroom Floor

I just finished tearing out my existing bathroom flooring to the subfloor. The floor is in good shape so I added a few screws to get the squeeks out and installed a new 1/2" hardwood floor on top of that using the requisite number and screw spacing. Now I want to add Peel and stick flooring. I purchased "Fast setting patch & skim coat S-184" from Home depot. My question is this... Do I float the entire surface of the floor or just where the screw dimples and seams are? OR, is there a better/more suitable product available that will help me in my quest?

Peel & Stick will show every blemish.
Have you considered adding smooth 1/4" luan paneling and then floating the seams and dimples?
That seems to give a much smoother finish.
Don't forget to bolt the toilet flange flush on top of the new floor with only the thickness of the flange above it, so that the wax seal will seat properly.
Good Luck!
