When glassing what can be done with the 3M 90 if it ends up lumpy ? Mine kicked so quick today that trying to smooth it caused the Bondo shaper to drag the 3M 90 into little lumps. Will heat smooth it out ? Or what ? It is not all that bad, I just would like a smoother surface for the Monokote.

Trick is..... dont just sand at it like a madman, sand a little let it cool, sand a little let it cool. reapeat, if it heats up those lumps melt into unremoveable boogers. I use 80-120 grit should be fine. Sometimes scratch at it with your nail in between sanding. Be sure to apply more glue when done sanding.

Hood scoop, idea was stolen from the master.
