So, today I'm laying up a bow on the patio and had just spread the glue on the back strip of glass and had layed it on the form. A sudden gust of wind knocked it off the form and it landed glue side down on the patio. I immediately said bad words and then picked it up and wiped the dirt and most of the glue off with acetone. Let it sit for a bit and then spread more glue and continued with the lay up.
Is there a chance of a bad glue joint on this lam?
There’s always a chance for a bad glue joint. But I think you’ll be fine. Had a similar incident, but with a riser. I did exactly as you. Scraped off what I could and wiped with acetone. I wipe all my fiberglass with acetone prior to glue up.
