I only have 6 gallons right now. Looks like I will be getting more. The last thing I want to happen is run out in the middle of the job. Rather over buy and have the resin than not have enough. I agree the core will soak up the majority. ideally 65 degrees is good for glassing. I won't see that temp consistently until late May. What is the temperature cut off is for fiberglassing. To realy want to get a goood head start before summer but am not going to risk this crucial part of the job in low temperatures. (Boat is outside no garage)

In not real sure on temperature cut off. I did all my initial glass work in the middle of summer and it was like 90 degrees out side. Second time was in a shop in the middle of winter but he was able to get it from 10 degrees up to 80 degrees no problem in about 20 minutes. LoL
