Fiberglass repair can be a tricky task to tackle, which is why it’s best to seek out the help of an autobody professional if you need a fiberglass repair. Some common fiberglass repair steps are listed below:
- Removing damaged fiberglass: If your vehicle has damaged fiberglass, our first step will be to assess the damage. It’s essential to work meticulously and slowly during this step to ensure all damaged portions are correctly removed. It is necessary to continue cutting until all the damaged fiberglass has been removed.
- Sanding: Sanding takes place numerous times throughout the repair process. Initially, a damaged area will need to be sanded once the unusable portion of fiberglass has been removed. After the resin is applied and has dried, the area will be sanded again to even out any unlevel surfaces.
- Resin: A fiberglass cloth is carefully sized to the damaged area and attached with the resin. The resin dries extremely quickly, so skill is vital during this step of fiberglass repair. A second coat of resin may be necessary to achieve the best results.
- Painting: Painting is the final step in the fiberglass repair process. Matching paint shades is important for a seamless repair. We take color matching seriously at Father & Son Collision and Classic Car Restoration. Our color match process is repeated over and over until we achieve the perfect color!
