That's quite the marathon effort. Well done.

Make sure those helpers get something nice. Hard, dirty clothes destroying work. But wise of you to get help. Awful lot to tackle alone.

Work looks good from a distance.

You are one lucky fellow to have a glassing crew like that :!: That had to have made the whole job a lot nicer.
Did you have one person whose sole job was mixing epoxy?

Pretty much.

My sister was mixing around 300g each batch for us all, and in between batches getting on with a roller :)

Very grateful for the help.
