Should I let the first layer dry before I add more fiberglass mat to it?

Should I let the 2nd layer dry before I add more layers to it?

thanks.

they don't need to completely dry, just to where they are tacky. Depending on how large your fiberglass is, start at one side, complete the whole thing then start at the same side again. Should be kind of dry and tacky by the time you start at the beginning again.

NO, the more layers you can do comfortably at once the better. More layers will mean more heat buildup. This is a good thing as the heat caused by the chemical reaction is what cures fiberglass. Just alternate the bias of each successive layer :)
