My experience with ACC is that it does go bad. I never had luck with the big bottles, even refrigerated. They went bad.
I buy packs of the little tubes from big box stores, because they cycle thru quickly, and are fresh. If one goes bad, I open a new one.

Does the ACC still work on other stuff? Does a new bottle work?

I have been assembling resin car kits for some 35 years now beginning with Dennis Storzek's Rutland
box cars back when the material was a lot tougher than resin and Al Westerfield's kits when he was using
really brittle resin, always using ACC but never having experienced the problem I've had for the last week.
I've been trying to assemble one of Steve Funaro's kits that seems no different than the many of his I've
also assembled before BUT the damned ACC is not cementing parts together. I beleive the bottle is now
three years old and is kept in the refrigerator when not being used regularly. It doesn't seem to matter
whether I try to use it right out of the refrigerator or after it has sat out at room temperature for a day it
simply does not work. Does ths stuff have a shelf life that I've never been aware of or has anyone else
experienced the same problem? Guess I'll go back to styrene for awhile rather than waste more time
only to get more frustrated.
