Crack / Chip in Fiberglass

I have a large chip in the fiberglass about 1/2 inch square. Have looked on Amazon for a repair kit and found " MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix". Reviews are mixed.

I know this is not a new issue but am looking for a little help with this fix. I want it to be clean and not turn into a major project.

What say U'al

Henry

Without a pic that shows the extent of the damage it's hard to say how far you should go.
If were me and the damage hasn't penetrated right though I'd probably
Shoot a little epoxy and a dab of paint on call it good and head back to the campfire.

Oh, ouch! Bondo Hair and possibly appliance enamel touch-up paint.

I so want to put a band-aid on it! OUCH again!

Let us know what you decide!
