    Fiberglass work RXP

    My front bumper keeps falling off as the holes holding the bumper on the front of the hull have gotten too big. The front bumper has been replaced and repaired by Riva already and fell off first time I used the ski after the repair. Now they have a few weeks wait before I can get it in to there fiberglass guy to repair the holes.

    I cant imagine this is too tough of a job to do myself...anyone have any suggestions on a fiberglass kit...also how to just repair just the holes...

    Riva tried rivoting the bumper on, but that did not work well. They said I cant just use bigger bolts as the washers inside the bumper will break.....

    You should be able to fiberglass the holes shut, drill out new holes, and paint the area to keep the fiberglass clear of water. Any autoparts supply house should have the materials. Wallow out the holes a little larger, and use some strips of material on front and back, not just the holes.
