Power At Work: A primer for simple fibreglass repairs

Some tips to help you do your own repairs with materials readily available at the local hardware or auto-body supply shop


There was a time when I tried to repair most things with glue, screws and bolts with nuts and washers.

Now I find that fibreglass methods can be used both to repair things and to create whole new parts. In one recent repair project, I had to make a plaster mould for a missing piece of a fibreglass car body and then attach the new piece using fibreglass. So, the purpose of this story is to encourage other handy persons to go to the local hardware or auto-body supply shop and stock up on the basic fibreglass materials.
