If this was a Fountain would it be a 5400.

I read that too somewhere but it was only after opening the tube so it would not harden completely and be still usable. I have some in the freezer I have done this with and it seems to work but I put the small cap back on it tightly and store in Ziplock baggie just in case it decides to leak. Hopefully it doesn't change the chemical composition any if frozen for months lol.

Besides what has already been said (i.e. don't use 5200 for this, and surface prep) the main thing is to not tighten the bolts until after it dries. It's pretty clear the film was very thin which is why the stuff didn't work. If you put it on and tighten right away then it all gets squashed out. do a very light bolt job, let it set, then bolt it down all the way the next day
