Ive put newspapers in it evryday too, what should I do to it before Celebration 3?! i need to start pianting it very soon, and frankly, if Im in it for 5 min plus I begin to pass out, how do I get the darn smell to go away!?

    Coat the epoxy with either plastidip or truck bed liner. spray it over a Q-Tip and rub it over the epoxy, when IT dries you wont smell it. You can also put the helmet in a box along with arm and hammer baking soda, it will knock the smell out.

    I agree with cal196, buy some truck bed liner or that black chip guard and paint overtop. That should seal those nasty odors away and give you a nice smooth finish on the inside.

    Sit a large peice of sasuage in there for several days, if you can in your trunk in the sun. the epoxy smell will be gone and you will have a nice sausage smell. Everyone likes sausage!

    You don't have a lot of people asking to borrow your bucket, do you?
