    thats why i'm gonna try the proglas...seems to cover both grounds with smc and fiberglass...epoxy based...says it has short glass strands already in it...instructions say you can also glass cloth/mat it also...we'll see how it goes

    If it's epoxy based it will work fine
    Y'all know me, still the same O.G. but I been low-key
    hated on by most these &^$$@s with no cheese, no deals and no G's, no wheels and no keys, no boats, no snowmobiles, and no skis, mad at me cause I can finally afford to provide my family with groceries

    WWSRD , What would Speed Racer do ?

    ok...here's my result....man it was a trying experience but i'm happy with what I did...you can see in sequential pictures the process

    pic 1 is how it looked after i got all the sticker and adhesive off

    pic 2 is after I cut the hole/rot out with my Ridgid oscilalting tool...I cut all of it at an angle

    pic 3 is how I decided to build up to fill the hole...I mixed in some 1708 mat glass with the Pro-Glas and basically just sanded the underside with my fingers...60 grit sandpaper...so the Pro-glas would adhere to the underside good...it did...I just filled the underside outer edges about 1 inch in with that and built it thick...used it as a base and just put more filler on top mixed with some 1708...it seems to hold well...pretty damn hard

    pic 4 is the mostly final result...a few minor things to do

    the sanding was the pain...over and over trying to fill small air bubbles/pockets...there are some in the final picture but nothing I'm concerned about...the small cracks.scratches on the side I mostly just sanded flat...a few needed some filler but it was a non-issue in terms of importance...I think the primer/sealer will fill in the rest...now what to do about the paint...we'll see
