Re: Fiberglass Dash help

Ditto on using the cloth versus mat. I did some work on my boat and the woven cloth is MUCH easier to work with.

If it were only "tacky" after 1.5 hours of cure time it still didn't have enough hardener. Juice the next batch up a little hotter or your going to delamination issues later.

If you're having trouble drying you could try a heat lamp.
