Re: Fairing Compounds, what do "you" use?

I picked up some G-Flex resin at Industrial Plastics and Paint. I also picked up 4 litre's of low density filler to stretch it out a bit and make it easier to work with.
It will kick off so long as it is not freezing outside. At 5c it will take 4 times longer to set than at 15c, it's minimum required temperature. It is unaffected by moisture or the humidity.
Ideally I should build a tent and put a heater in it but really, that would be a lot of work and being right beside the ocean and in the wind I can't see a big gain in temperature by doing that. I have some time.
The local racing season doesn't start until January 6th.
Thanks for all the idea's and Merry Christmas everyone.
