I am playing with a fiberglass project and the first strip I laid does not seem to want to set-up and harden. It's been 24 hours and it's still very tacky. I thought I used the correct number of drops of hardner; if anything I put in too many. Could that make it fail to harden? It's not real cold here, which I know can cause problems, but I put a heat lamp on it just in case. Any ideas if it still fails to harden. Is there something I can put on it to harden it or will I be stuck scraping it all off and starting over?? Thanks.

B_Body,

Thanks for the advice. By "having all my layups ready to go," do you mean have all of the glass cloth pieces cut and then put them all on at once? I was just assuming that I should put one layer on, let it dry, then the next layer, let it dry, etc. So I should just build up all the layers wet and let the whole thing dry at once?
