84 Corvette Repair?

I Know The 84 Corvettes Are Some Type Of Plastic Fiberglass?? Composite, I Have Two Cracks In The Quarter Panel , The Rep Says The Norton Two Part Epoxy Or Speedgrip Urethane Will Repair Them, I Have Also Talked To The Norton Rep He Says The Same, Does Anyone Have Any Experience In Working On One Of These Cars, I Am Not New To This, But I Am Very Unfamiliar With Corvettes, Thanks For Any Help, Mike.

It's Sheet Molded Compound (SMC). Check this out:

If you want to repair SMC in the conventional manner, with mat and resin, there are resins made specifically for this, such as Evercoat's "SMC Fiberglass Resin", #865. Normal fiberglass resin will not adhere well, and should not be used.

The Norton will work just fine.
Carry out your V-Groove as wide and gradual as possible.
