    I suppose it is possible that you have some bad epoxy, if it hasn't cured at all it is possible that the two parts that you mixed are in fact only one part; either the bottles were mis labled or you made a mistake. No question though, epoxy is a little tricky at times, I've had it do some strange things at times for me. You'll have to take it all out and start over. Get some new epoxy if you are sure you mixed it rite, and make sure you mix the amounts as per the instructions. Hopefully it just hardened very slow because of the cooler weather and humidity that we are experiencing now.

    One more question, are you mixing "Q-cell" with it?

    2 hours and "never" are completely different things for epoxy resin. Good surfboard quality epoxy resin usually isn't hard after 2 hours at room temp. A gooey taffylike texture after 2 hours wouldn't surprise me at all especially if you worked on a cool day. Heat will do more than sun to speed up the cure if the air is cool outside. Mix the resin/hardener in a warm place, do the repair over, and let it set up in a warm place.

    i use a dremel tool with a little cutting wheel attachment.n I can't imagine doing ding repairs without a $30 rotary tool and all of the cool attachments.



    cut just deep enough to go through the glass and into the foam a bit, loosen the bad glass from the foam with an exacta knife blade and peel it up slowly trying to avoid pulling up divots of foam.

    The dremel tool is the way to go. With the different attachments, you can do everything from cutting out large pieces of fiberglass to sanding very small cracks. I only wish I could find stainless steel cutters so they would stop rusting when not in use. This probably won't be a problem if I didn't live right on the beach, the trade off is worth it though.
