Advice on repairing cracks on body of Scimitar

Post by noel6071 » Mon Apr 06, 2015 10:57 pm

Hello Folks, just looking for some advice on the best way in repairing some cracks that have appeared on the bonnet of my Reliant Scimitar SE5, there is also slight cracks on the front wings, the rest of the body is perfect, is there any special resin to use in repairing these or would the standard fibreglass be sufficient?

depends if they are in the paint or deeper ie stress cracks,

if sterss cracks grind out to a shallow V resin and tissue then fill level,
