So sooner or later i am going to need to repair the one on my '75 Trill.
Earlier in the summer my girlfriend fractured an ankle, and the she had a fiberglass cast put on at the hospital. This is interesting stuff. Comes in a foil sealed envelope which contains a 10 foot roll of 3 inch wide fiberglass tape impregnated with air and water activated resin. The "cast tech" rips open the envelope dunks the rolls in cool water for a few seconds, and then wraps it around the ankle and leg. In THREE minutes it is set. He mentioned that it will set even if not water activated, but will take longer.
Here is an ebay link to the stuff

I was wondering if anyone had tried using it on a Trillium
belly band repair. Might make the repair easier and quicker.
I was thinking that as in other threads, you would remove the actual belly band, cut out the metal tabs, and rough up the fiberglass seams.
Then take the fiberglass casting tape unroll it while folding it in half, and then stick it in the belly band slot. You would then later put an additional coating of regular fiberglass resin on the tape to fill in the pores of the tape, followed by bondo and sanding.
Does this all sound like it might be worth a try?
