    I think I would use thin structural epoxy like WEST for epoxy parts. If the viscosity needs to be improved, use powdered cotton flocking, it is stronger than the usual extenders like Cab-O-Sil or microballons.
    What's a go-around?

    You can read about several different epoxy' in the aircraft spruce cat. and their applications. The problem is if the fiberglass parts are made with different resin's. Some have a wax in them that surfaces when it cures so clean all the surfaces really well with acetone. Also between each lay-up. The general rule is always go to epoxy resin when your not sure of the parts. Also be careful of too much heat by kicking off the resin too fast with the hardener.

    Bad day, too bad, that will take days if not weeks to recover from. Did you notice the video started in day light and was very dark at the end, long day also.
