Default Re: Gas tank shroud

Yup.. even the slow curing west system epoxy can get really hot really fast if mixed in a larger batch, they say you can mix bigger batches of the epoxy if you can keep it really shallow like less than about 1/2" deep, like mix it then quickly pour into a cookie sheet will allow you time to do your layups without it hyper curing on ya.... that stuff does have a nasty smell too... and it don't just wash off if ya get it on your hands... it'll leave your hands stinking like epoxy for days no matter how many times ya try and wash it off. I found that acetone can get most of it off if ya accidentally get some on ya but it still won't get rid of the lingering smell...
