Thanks
Ya I do fix what I can any cracks or breaks
I do fix it with fiberglass
After in done all the repairs
I use a high build polyester primer called slick sand to cover up any stress cracks or small nicks
Than I sand it with 220
Than 320
And than paint
It is recommended to finish in 400 but I'm using a single stage urethane paint do it covers very well

Hmmm....
Never worked with fiberglass before but I know I'm going to have to.
Is the main reason you use fiberglass to repair the cupboards etc... so you don't have to make new ones?
I'm learning lots by reading here. I also love the idea of no rivets on the outside. Does Expoxy glue work the best for attaching blocking for hanging cupboards?
Thanks again this is so helpful for a newbie!

ok so i pulled down my last bench and its in rough shape
the center wood is rotten and it has cracked around the sides

so i took the wood out cut a new peace
added a few 2 by 4 on each side to have a larger surface of support

and glued them in with the urethane glue

after the 3-4 min of glue drying i fiber glassed it together just for extra support

Cloth or mat for structure. what about filling in the old rivet holes from the upper cabinets what do you suggest is the best approach to do there.

You should use both I use the cloth to get the shape
It's thin but is Lays down smooth
Than I use the matting to give it thickness

For the holes I use a long strand fiberglass filler
Make sure you taper the holes first to give the filler something to bite to

Than use a glazing putty to smooth out
Than prime and paint

The airbrushing should tie it all together

Thank you very much Brayden. I was looking at that fiberglass strand product at canadian tire. not sure if that product(bondo) is a good product or not, but its pretty much the easiest product i can get my hands on. So just using a sander would taper the holes properly or should i use an angle grider and really get down. By the way thanks for all the info on this.

Bondo brand is just a lower quality brad
Like no name brand food
It works

Do you not have an auto value Or napa
My website is
Www.offshoreautobodysupplies.com
I'm still working on it so I don't have the filler on there but I think it's about 10-14 for a qt Fiberglass filler

I use a dremmel
