    650SX Fiberglass Resin Question

    I want to use polyester resin since it is SMC, right? So will the Bondo brand polyester resin available at any discount auto supply place work good?

    Other way around.

    It's lengthy but post 64 starts talking about it and then 111 shows a good test.

    OK, but why is the Evercoat SMC resin that Blowsion slaps a sticker on a polyester resin?

    "SMC resin is a polyester-based resin used for repair of SMC and fiberglass panels and parts. More effective on SMC than conventional fiberglass-type resins."

    It sounds like this product is formulated for use on SMC, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Epoxies are definitely the way to go, and just as easy or easier than polyester resins. They can be sanded and have a lot less smell than polyester resin. SMC has release agents mixed throughout it which is why you need epoxy to bond to it, the polyester resin can’t maintain an ionic bond; it would be a mechanical bond with anything it can grab. Depending on what you’re repairing, I recommend leaving it rough if possible to keep the surfaces exposed for the epoxy to bond to, and then sand it down. Flame treating with a blowtorch helps also to close off the release agents.

    I have also used West Systems with good results. Used it to patch some js550's that were cracked all the way through in the usual spots. 2 seasons on the repairs with no issues.
