i did my driver's side pod awhile back, but ran into some **** and didn't get the other one done. now i want to do the other one, but the highs here only get into the 40's or 50's on a good day. can i still glass in these temps?

can you do it in your garage with some heat lamps?

also you can add a little more mekp to harden quicker.

don't have heat lamps. i figured i could do the mold inside the car and turn the car on and run the heater for awhile. i got an electric heater for in the garage i suppose i could use.

you can glass outside, then bring it inside your (basement?) and let it harden there. thats what i did last winter. if you cant do it that way, make the mixture a lil hot by adding some more hardener.

i would say no. i tried it and it took forever to work. i do not glass in any temp below 60 and a sunny day now.

I do it, but I take it inside to cure near a heater. I also use a heat gun sometimes as well. More hardener will work to a point but can have adverse effects if you get carried away with it ( smoke is bad :D ) :)
