WHo can fix Fiberglass? - September 20, 2007, 09:21 AM

Anyone here good at patching up fiberglass? My track plastics need a little patching...I dunno JACK about fiberglass!

It doesnt look bad at all. Just cracks at the bends of the fiberglass...

For those purposes...you can. Get some mat and some resin and patch from the back. Easy as pie.

What eric said. You can pick up a fiberglass repair kit at Auto Zone.

The stuff is messy but if its a small job its pretty easy to do.

Resin fumes.... mmmmmm.....

Update- Its coming along. Im doing it myself- and yeah, its a pain in the butt.

I bought the Bondo Fiberglass repair kit from Auto Zone. I heard about some other stuff that is better to use. Anyone have any recommendationsof other epoxys to use?

man the kits are horrible.

just by some F/G cloth ($5 a package)
one container of f/G resin & hardener

and some lightweight filler
and you should be good to go.

personally what i used on my fairings for filler (since motorcycle plastics flex) is this

from ever coat called polyflex, its a little flexible compared to a harder bondo compound.

Ever Coat is the shit. The stuff is light weight and somewhat flexible. If you are working fiberglass. Make sure you wear long sleeves and cover as much of your skin as possible. That shit will make you want to scratch your skin off.
