To combat this issue, I reconfigured the tarps attached to the tent so it could be, at least partially, closed in to trap heat. The result is far from an insulated work space, but using a propane forced air heater, it can manage to trap enough of the heat to bring the work space temperature up about 15 to 20 degrees above the ambient temperature (depending on how windy it is in the yard).

With the new and improved work space, we were able to apply a weave fill coat of resin even though the official high temperature here today was only 56 degrees Fahrenheit and was measured at a max of 65 in the yard. After applying the resin, I was able to bring the temperature of the tent up to a high of 80. Even with the temperatures outside dropping as the sun set, the resin was able to cure.

So, tomorrow we will be again sanding fiberglass...oh, yay. But being able to make progress today was good....as it sounds like more colder weather will be heading our way.
