ok I mixed up a half gallon or resin to start out with I added half of the bottle of hardner which was recomended on the resin instructions and after 1 and a half hours it was still not hard it was tacky so we let it sit over night the temp was kind of low would that cause it? Will it be like painting while it is damp it will never dry just stay mushy? any tips would be great. And yes I thouroughly mixed the hardner.

If it is cold you will need A LOT of MEKP, or harderner.  Where did you get your resin?  They should have individual packs of harderner you can buy.  I will use both the bottle's of harderner that come with the resin plus sometimes 2 more when I am glassing during cold weather.  I am sure Wal-Mart carries the individual MEKP in the area where they sell bondo and stuff.

Also, this is a HUGE box.  You will have to sell your truck to afford all the mat and resin you will have to use. I am going to suggest Cabosil (Aerosil).  It is a powder substance (kinda like grinded up mat) that you mix with resin and it turns into a thick substance (like peanut butter).  It takes about 80% less time and resin, and can get your enclosure as strong if not stronger than multiple layers of matting.  Not to mention, it will leave you with a fairly smooth surface to prep on the outside, because cabosil goes on the inside of the box.  Good luck, and the box looks great!!

Are you going to secure your box into place.  I know that because of the size of the box it may not seem that it will move but you might want to take that into consideration.  I know that it's kind of late to think about this at this point but if you decide to screw it down so that it wont slide in case of an emergency you can probably do braces on the side of the box.
