    Default Prepping for paint

    I know there is a paint fiberglass page here but I figured this would get a faster answer here. I have a scoop I want to put on my boat but it needs a bit of fiberglass repair and prep for paint. The holes on top need a bit of attention. The paint is quite thick about 1/32" and spiderweb cracking.
    Can I just chip off the loose stuff and then sand everything down a bit and repair the holes with mat and resin? Can the mat and resin be overlaid on the old paint then sanded smooth? I want to paint this flat black. Pics in next post. Thanks guys.
