Glass discoloration

Post by rbecker08 » Sat Jun 23, 2018 10:15 pm

So played the other half of the tape to connect my panels today and found something figured I would ask about. So not sure what an air bubble looks like or glass starved for resin so may have that. Pic posted below but there two circleish areas near the top of the panel that look hazier then the rest. Let me know if it's something to worry about thanks for helping me through this

couple of things I see which prob is this. No 1 It may be resin starved. No 2---Looks like it has plenty of resin but when you wet it out you didn't roll it out enough. This makes resin to float on the glass and not stick to the hull, You might be able to wet it out again in that area, Try and take a heat gun and heat that area back and forth. Do not get it to close to the hull, just high enough to soften it up and then wet it out right after you heat it. This will help the resin to saturate it again. Don,t do a large area first. Start around a 2' square. I think you will be ok. No need to strip it off. :doh:

A little saw dust, a little glue, and a lot of love, and she will float.
