Default Resin help, inside box

So I have gotten bored looking at the box in garage waiting on the subs and decided to resin all corners and seams and maybe all inside just for the hell of it. Well this has created a nightmare, 90% is hard as a rock but the corners in some places will not completely harden and are still tacky after 2 days. I have read leave it alone and it will eventually harden but this is BS. I don't know whether to scrape or try to sand it down bare again or what. I tried another layer last night with a little more hardener but same thing. Tacky in some spots, I am regretting even doing it now. After over 300 bucks in just wood I don't want to screw it up. I think it's not hardening were the liquid nails sealed the corners.
Any ideas?

could be. i was told resin wouldn't adhere to stuff like that. i resin all my boxes which is why i use no sealer other than the gorilla wood glue.

That's what I'm worried about. Should I start scraping? I could use mat and resin over that in corners and seems but not in the port.
Can I even scrap this shit out?
The box is 14cuft of all high dollar nice baltic birch except port wall which is mdf.

I will try a couple things, I have a small work light that puts off massive heat. I will set it in there and see what happens. Sucks because I don't want to upholstery it until this is done

Ok nothing has worked, lessen here is never use liquid nails and think resin will do well as a top coat. Lots of scraping and then broke out the sander. Trying to sand this shit out. Only thing working at this point. Sucks but got to have this complete this week. Wife needs garage for a freakin yard sale.
After all this I will wipe all down with wet rag and attempt a thin coat of spray paint just to insure there is not fiberglass dust blowing around in my truck when subs are playing.
I know one thing this sucks
