FIBERGLASS MASTER CLASS
FIBERGLASS PANEL BONDING OR REBONDING
The filler is generously applied with a squeegee to the repair area and pressed in to fill any holes or open areas in the newly bonded seam. As always, whenever working with any body repair materials use Nitrile gloves for skin protection and a respirator and goggles to protect your lungs and eyes during sanding and grinding.
After allowing about an hour to go by so the adhesive and filler are cured completely, a sanding block with #90 grit paper is used to take-down the majority of filler until it is reasonably smooth.
Here’s the completed repair, ready for priming and painting. Repairs like these often seem intimidating to the novice, but they aren’t difficult if you use the right materials and the right tools. Of course, practice and experience will improve your techniques, skills and, subsequently, your results.
A sheet of #180-grit paper is wrapped around a piece of old heater hose and used to further smooth the repaired area, finessing the contours and curved areas until they are perfectly smooth to the touch. As a rule of thumb, if you can feel any bumps, depressions or rough spots, they will definitely show when the finish paint is applied.
