I weld patches in holes and rusted areas!! Sure its right but not the only way! Hell they are gluing patch panels on now! I would have thought that crazy years ago! And Ive seen riveted patches done right that still look good 30 years later! Its ability that decides whats good or not, not the process to meet the same end desired! Fiberglass layed on fiberglass will pop off too if the right prepping isn't adhered to!

I agree.. I'm saying fiberglass layed on metal will not bond for very long.. Done right or wrong..

I'm also saying fiberglass parts can be boned to metal with the RIGHT bonding stuff,, Not resin..

I would rather see someone pop rivet,or bond a patch on then use fiberglass on metal anyday... Will hold up longer...
