Divits In Screw Holes

Post by specialk » Sat Sep 06, 2014 6:02 am

Ok thought I would ask about this...I have filled the screw holes once.. and I have small to large divits in them.. so should I refill them before fiberglass or will the epoxy just fill this in...

I too want the Glen L. sanding team to stop by my shop.. I will supply hamburgers and beer...!

You should refill before fiberglassing. Often fillers will shink a bit and need refilling.

Thanks Roberta
I felt that was the right thing to do...just want to get some fiberglass on..my wife is off today ...maybe I can talk her into that job...hum...!!!

Just a quick update...The wife said no ...she just got back from getting her nails done..
I guess it did not hurt to ask..!
