well I resealed my tank last night. When i went into the garage and checked on it just now, the corners in the botton are still mushy and soft. The silicone that is exposed it dry but it feels like it is still gummy underneath the surface. Is this normal? it has been almost 24 hours. It is about 38 degrees in the garage so I was wondering if that would have something to do with it? Also, I put it on pretty thick so I was thinking it just hasn't had time to completely harden? any suggestions?

i believe that on the tube it says somthing about minimum tempriture. at any rate 38f is cold so i would either allow alot mor cureing time or raise the temp. im not sure if i would move it now though, but someone with more experience with tanks can help you more. i used to do repairs on airplanes so its a bit different./...lol

Yeah give it more time, its normal for the gummy feel for a day or two.... and that temperature is going to take even longer....
