I've seen SMC repair kits at the paint store, but not sure what they contain. When I said grind, I was imagining using a 2" angle grinder with 36grit. What grit are you thinking on the D/A?
The small angle grinder will work but it is a little hard to control. But yes, that will work. I just like to thin the "glass" more like feathering so your transition from the worked area to the good area is smoother. The resin is simply labeled for SMC.
