How to Repair Fiberglass

 How to Repair Fiberglass Corvettes.

two part epoxsyRepairing fiberglass on a Corvette is simple yet very important especially if you are restoring. Corvettes can develop cracks and or breaks that may be small but need to be repaired to limit their damages. If you have a crack you should first use a 1/8 or up to 1/4 drill bit and drill a hole at the very end of the crack before repairing it. Although fiberglass should be used in major instances a quick easy and strong solution is 2 part epoxy.

You can pick that up at your local Wal-Mart store. First locate the ends of the cracks. Drill a small hole at the ends to prevent further cracking. I then like to use a cut off or sharp scraper and dig a trench along the crack slightly widening it for filling. In some cases I like to use a second drill bit larger to counter sink a hole over the top of the smaller one for filling. Mix up the two part epoxy and spread a layer to fill in the hole and the crack.

On larger jobs you should use fiberglass repair kits and mating. When joining and installing a new part like a lower half of a fender you can purchase a larger quantity of 2 part epoxy specifically made for bonding the new to the old section. See it below. Larger quantities require a two part dispensing gun.
