I had my front fender cracked in 4 spots from a low speed crash and I fiberglassed under it and it is pretty strong. I went to Bass Pro Shops and they wanted an ass load for their fiberglass stuff. I ended up finding a kit at NAPA for $25. Quart of resin and 8 sq ft of glass mat. Works great. Have to be carefull though. The crap gets everywhere. I should have taped up the cracks on the paint side, some oosed through. Not too noticable though. Stronger than stock and saved a hundred bucks or so.

how do i apply it and does it go under the plastic?
That's what I did. Cut the mat to fit the contours of the piece. Mix a little of the resin and hardner together, put some down. Lay the glass mat on top and put some more resin on top. The glass will soak it up, so if you put too much on at first, you may not want to put more on top of it. Beware, gravity can be your enemy, don't try to do it all at once if you crack spans a large area.

I had a vfr and used shavings from some junk pieces and mixed it with abs plumbing cement. Got to have good ventilation, the abs glue is a solvent and melts the shavings, make sure the back side is roughed up. personally i hate working with fiberglass matt but it adds to the strength. imo:thumbup:

i cracked my fairing pretty badly and fiberglassed the hell outta the back and after a couple layers used some body puddy on the front side to fill and smooth the crack and scratches. Painted it and it seriously looks better then it did off the show room floor
