I know how NOT to fix it...avoid plaster, chicken wire, expanding foam and heaps of bog.

keep up the good work!

Hey Linton, was good to meet you the other day.

Looks like you have done very well getting that shell to the stage it is with no panel experience.

Must be now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and getting a bit excited?

Looks nice and straight Linton! I used 'flex aid' on my old urethane front spoiler and it never cracked, might be an idea for the Fibreglass one if you haven't Already thought of it...

Have you figured out the paint code yet?
