    Fiberglass repair project

    Hey guys my friend did a number to my kawasaki 650sx. Long story short it ran into a few docks and now has multiple holes, dents, scratches.. I'm going to re fiberglass and paint it. Any suggestions on what to do/not to do would be a great help! The front fiberglass bumper is completely crushed and gone so i was planning on rounding the front off entirely. Any suggestions?

    first thing to do is find out if SMC or fiberglass. there is a difference in repair material. SMC will be slick on the backside just like outside fiberglass has a texture on backside. if you can get to backside repair it from there first then glass out side using proper material. this should get you started .will be glad to give any more info i can. have 30+ years in body repair. have built fiberglass body parts from making mold to finish.

    yeah, if its SMC you need to repair it with an expoxy resin. Look into the west systems products for this. SMC is a lot different than regular fiberglass and if you approach it like traditional fiberglass, the repairs won't hold. SMC is the same thing they used to make Corvette body parts with.
