The resin we used came in a kit specially designed to make whiteboards so the maker is not giving us much info about it. What it does say is that it is a 2 part, epoxic polysiloxane resin. Hope that helps.

We think that particular option would be riskier as there are now two different power supplies involved, the one feeding the Raspberry Pi and the one feeding the HDD. Or they share the same power supply and you are feeding the Raspberry Pi through the USB port, bypassing the fuse which is not such a good idea.The way we propose, the brick is powering both the Hdd and the Raspberry and the fuse is not bypassed.
We were unaware of the existence of the cable, we only knew of the 314GB kit which is quite difficult to get here in Mexico. We appreciate the info.Indeed it would be a nice addition. We mention at the last step that we could have used a different power connector but we already had the power brick which required USB ports.
Yes, we probably should have made a little bit of research before getting the drive, but since it was a gift we couldn't really complain.
It is interesting that you mention that we should not plug both USB cords into the same machine to get enough power. The cable from our previous external HDD was exactly like that and we never had any kind of issues with it.
Exactly, also known as the poor man's way of prototyping 2 layer PCB's.As of the perpendicular traces, we are not quite sure why they didn't work but our guess is that we were getting too much cross-talk because they were perpendicular. Or maybe our power brick is sinking the data lines to ground.
