On a remodel fix up( before putting 7K miles on it on our trip out west) I cut off and ground down the seam, used fg EPOXY RESIN with 1/4 in chop strand mixed in finished smooth with Bono and tip brushed white Rustolium on top of Bens Bonding Primer (very important according to the tech at Rustolium)
. Strength is already there with the fiberglass mat used by the manufacturer on the inside..
RESULTS: after seven thousand miles not even a spider web crack.I can post pics if your interested
Oh yeah, I'd like to see photos of your project.
Is this what you used when you mixed in the "chop strand" in the fg resin?

Now I have another alternative to consider with your method.
I have been considering adding tint to the resin too in case I don't get a chance to finish the job before heading out this winter. I haven't found any real good information on the web though yet.
Thanks for the info. Next summer I'll tackle the ridge.
