Re: REFLECTOR: Which epoxy now?

I got the epoxy from the Velocity store. I assume this is EZ-Poxy.

The reaction to epoxy are usually expressed on the skin and in severe cases
with breathing. Is it possible that you are just out of shape a little? :-)

I am only half kidding. One season I was so out of shape after Winter
inactivity that when I started working on the plane in the Spring I was
getting short of breath and my first thought was Epoxy reaction. Went away
after getting back in shape a little. 

You may also want to wear an organic vapor mask while doing wet layups if
you don't already do so.
