    Same what happen to my VXR 2011 at the same place, I fixed 2 time by using fiber glass but it doesn’t work it cracked again cause the fiber glass doesn’t pastes to the nanoxel .

    what kind of the reinforcement & material can I used? Is there VXR reinforcement?

    I used the same (West Systems Epoxy) when i got a gouge in the bottom of my VXS. The stuff is solid, no delamination, chipping, peeling, etc.. Just make sure you get the paint off before applying it. I don't know if you can get it in your area, country, and shipping it to you would probably be very expensive however you could probably get true epoxy resin and hardener where you are. Just don't use polyester resin, it's not the same.

    Thanks for you reply..
    I found it in my area but the hardener not 205 its 208.
    I think it will work I will put the result after I repair it.
