I have started assembling the main tube and it has developed a white haze on the inside that is not coming off.
What I have done up to this point:
- Sanded the ends
- wiped the tube out, did not wash just wiped with a cloth
- Silicone the O-rings and installed the end caps
The white haze looks like the white epoxy but I had not used any epoxy at that point. Its pretty much everywhere except for the flat viewing plate for the camera. I really don't care that it is there, although it is ugly, but I don't want it to develop on the viewing plate. I'm thinking it has something to do with the silicon and sanded acrylic? am I crazy to think that..? Like I say I never washed it out after sanding just wiped it. I needed it put together to take some measurements and test fit. The area where the o ring sits has the same build up and its very hard which makes me thing the acrylic dust must be reacting with the silicon.
again, just want to know what i did wrong so it doesn’t show up on my viewing plate. I have scene washed it out.
