    Fiberglass resin and liquid nails

    I am building ported box and I'm trying to resin the inside so that it is smooth and I used liquid nails to glue the pieces together and then laid down a thin coat of resin and its not drying in the corners covered in liquid nail so then i double coated and its still not drying (24 hours) but the rest is very dry only the corners is that a common problem or am I missing something. Also any other suggestions would be duly noted. Inb4 hardener Inb4 something is grammatically wrong Inb4 OP can't Inb4.

    Never heard of this. Usually if you used the right amount of hardener in the resin it will harden no matter what you put it over.

    If this is the problem. Use a putty knife and scrape off all that excess. Get a heating gun once you have it scraped off and make sure its nice and dry before applying the resin again.

    Your box is probably going to blow apart if you used liquid nails instead of wood glue.
    I used to do the same thing when i started building boxes 14 years ago and they always came apart.
