    Fiberglass repair after crash

    Long story short, I got in a small crash and damaged the hull of my 2006 rxp. I can't tell if it is just the jellcoat, or if it is deeper. I have no clue where to even start with fiberglass, but would like to fix it. From end to end it is about 4 inches long.
    Any advise on what to do?

    Looks like the glass cracked, grind it down, reglass it then gel coat it.

    708
    you need to remove the delam then grind 1" beyond the delam. Use epoxy resin and load it with cabosil if it's really shallow otherwise use 1708 as your first layer. If you don't know the words in my statement google it. You'll find a lot of helpful hints but don't try to bond to loose, damaged glass.
