    depends on how big of a crack you got
    But you can do all the drilling and stuff to it. this is a glass body that is painted ?right you should sand the paint off first
    take a pieace of tape and duck out the under side of the body then clean the cut .Then carry on to hand lay the fiberglass down in the crack and over the hole and make sure the glass is over the hole crack then you can sand it with a 80 gritsand paper or a sander then use the bondo to block it use guide coat to make sure it is block nice and slick.then spray with gel coat or primer but make sure you mask off the area then base coat and then paint

    well hope this helps

    At the end of the crack,drill a 1/8 hole all the way through the fiberglass to stop it from traveling.Next,V out the crack with a drill bit or a router.Now the next thing you do,a lot of people have thear own way of doing as far as using sertin materials,I have always had good luck useing corvete pannel bond.It mixes like bondo,and dries fast.Its easy to work with and its as strong as anything out their.Another option is 3M pannel bond.It was disined to bond metal serfices together,but works great on fiberglass.its more costly,but worth the money.

    I can't believe no one has helped you with this question yet. I don't come here often so don't know where to send you, but there must be a lot of text on this somewhere.
    Come on guys, help this dude.
    Have you tried a search of the old postings?

    kit car body - fibreglass repair?

    Dear folks,

    I see some small cracks on a kit car body I am looking at. They are at the edge of the body panel. Can it be easily repaired and repainted? Can anyone give me a link I can look it up?

    Thanks ahead.
    Michael.
