Good advice already given.

I would suggest the use of a fibreglass repair kit (or at the very least Plastic Padding), which would then require smoothing down prior to paint.

I think a lot depends on how badly cracked (i.e. chipped or cracked right through) the wing is. You may well find its not aligned correctly since the impact, and this will cause further stress cracks along its length.

I haven't repaired one, but I'd probably be inclined to try to source one from an online salvage yard (you may even find the correct colour) - the most hassle is then painting (which you would probably have to do anyway), and fitting (which would be better done with the headlight out).

Hope my meandering post helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
