    Default Patching a nick in fiberglass floor

    So i was removing the old fiberglass tanks in my continental and slipped with the grinder and put a gouge in the floor about 1 inch long 1/8 wide 1/8 deep. The wood is exposed. Should i just mix up a little resin and fill the gouge or will i need to put some cloth down on top of it ?

    If the wood is showing, throw some mat over it. Wet the area and mat real well. Mat only enough to cover your repair. Then let dry and come back and try and float the void with some resin. Should be good to go, just my 2 cents.
