Thought I saw a retired guy with a RV 7 or rv-9 down in Ramona, or French Valley that helped someone out with a bird that shattered a canopy in Apple Valley that's expert in that stuff? Do a search. Found him, look up bruceh

Fiberglass work is hard to do at a distance since it takes multiple iterations of sanding/filling, but I'm fairly close in the San Diego area. I'd be happy to discuss with you what you need done.

Itís a pretty forgiving process. You can always sand off your boo-boos and lay down a new layer of glass and resin. It seems much more mystical than it really is.
