    I think it may warp it a little unless you have a low temp catylist. But I don't really know that much about fiberglass or resin so maybe someone else familiar with it can chime in.

    normal polyester resin should work..doesn't heat up or anything.. but will give you one heck of a buzz if not in a ventilated room or facemask.

    I second that. Do it outside.

    Some automotive body repair fiberglass sheets have a low temp cure. You might try that.
