  • Gel Coating Tent with Space heater

    I have prepped my rear compartments of my 2003 SANTE (removing carpet and glue and sanding down)

    I am ready to use a crushable Gel Coat that I have already tested .

    My shop stays at 50 degrees with no heat source here in CO......so I created a tent over Front to tower to rear with compartment lids open...keeping the tent 4" plus away from flooring.

    Manufacture says its safe to use a electric space heater to keep continuous temp in the tent for warming up and curing overnight....but recommended not to mix hardener and resin in the tent.

    I am concerned about the fumes and is this going to blow up with the space heater.

    What are peoples thoughts on this....and more importantly, has anyone done this system before? I have checked online for hours finding no negative thoughts....but double checking....triple checking...and quadruple checking....to make sure I will be safe, and my shop.

    Thoughts?
