So I found an unopened bottle of prokote epoxy and the harder has turned amber in color. How much will this show up after it hardens over a wrap? Or should I just buy a new bottle?

All hardeners amber or yellow, either in the bottle or on the wraps. It's fine. You're looking through a large thickness. Sort of like looking through a glass a beer versus spilling a small quantity that spreads out thinly and then appears clear.

Thank you Tom that’s what I kinda figured. I put some on a test wrap last night But was not patient enough to wait for it to dry to see what it looked like so i figured I would pop the question on here.
