Default Lord Adhesive Tacky After 24hrs

I finally installed the rear windows on the 10 yesterday. Within a few hours everything seemed to be setting up as you would expect, but I have about a 2" section of squeze out that is still gooey/tacky. This is on the second window, so I would have assumed by then the mix through the gun would be pretty consistant. Is Lord adehsive like proseal where even if it's not mixed well it will eventually cure? Also, all the tubes are fresh, stored properly and no where near experation. Anyone else experiance this?

Thanks,
Lynn

Just in case anyone is curious, 2 weeks and same section is not cured. I e-mailed Geoff and he'd never heard of anyone having this issue. So might dig a little out and then encapsulate it with fresh.

How soft/tacky? Hot bubble gum, or firm plastic with a little tack?

I haven't pushed to hard, kind of like putting your hand in bubble gum. If I lay my hand on it, I have a line of adhesive on my hand from it.
