Default Flox

When I did mine, I added some flox to the epoxy then thickened it slightly with Cabo. I think mine was about the consistency of applesauce. The syringe had no problem injecting it into the void.

Thanks... that gives me something to aim for...

I got these at the local Woodworkers store... should be good for resin.

Thumbs up It worked

Thanks guys - the apple sauce epoxy with a 50-50 cabosil/flox additive worked great.

I put in over 10 cc and I could see it spreading out in all directions from the hole I put in the center of the 4 bolt hinge hole pattern. The excess epoxy made a nice fillet at the edges of the flat hinge area.

Good to hear. I have to do that around the door handle inset area on both doors. I got a good bond elsewhere, but couldn't really find a way to clamp that area.

I'm not sure how the flashlight through the material idea would work with either the pink doors or the later grey gelcoat doors.

It is OK on the older green doors.

I can't see it working at all with the pink doors.

Default Flashlight

I'm not sure how the flashlight would work but I used my LED trouble light behind the pink glass and it works just fine...
