    Might want to put down some sand in there. On the above ground pool I put up years ago I used the pre-fab material coping which worked out well. I also used a pre-fab mat for the bottom of the pool which I also would recommend.

    My soil is sand already but I am planning on putting a liner pad down also my questions is about the coping if it is too big or ok?

    On a 27' pool you are fine. I might not have extend that far in because it may make standing by the edge with my margarita difficult. But what you have is ok

    I just don't want wrinkles in the liner because there's really no adjustments on the multi Bead liner didn't know if it was to big

    You might want to consider the steps you will be putting in the pool, if any, and how they will fit on or around the cove. Some steps are "notched" or rounded in the back where they will sit above the cove but others might be flat. You can change the cove shape where any steps might be placed.
