    Whats up with the smell?

    Ait, when does this stinking thing stop stinking up my car?

    I have completed my first fiberglassing project!
    It's been 4 days, it's dryed up(cured) and I have sanded and everything.
    However it still stinks like resin and making me , just kidding about the last one...

    Seriously, how long will it keep smelling like that?
    What have I done wrong?

    Well, that smell will be there forever *evil laugh and grin*
    After a while you'll be too stupid to notice it.

    Its been around 20-25 C during the days, and about 10-15 at night! Too cold?

    It's not "tacky" anymore, so it should be cured, right?

    Jepp, i guess. My batch kept drying before i was done, so had to make new ones all the time. I guess total work time on each fiberglass layers was about 15-20 minutes. Needed to make 2 batches for each layer. I had only 2 layers and YES i let it dry in between.

    Thanks for helping me out

    I know it's usually a faux pas to resurrect a dead thread, but I'm having the smell issue now. I assume (read: hope) it goes away in time?

    Did you ask some other people cus the problem could be you thinking that the smell is there (after some days working with resin, bondo etc)
