    Question

    Okay--please don't ask how or why. It happens! What is the proper way to repair a fiberglass tub enclosure--a two inch hole(round).
    Any tips appreciated.

    Any auto parts store has fiberglas repair kits. They come with instructions.

    Corvette owners do dumb things, too.

    Fit in a backer plate before you do the
    repair and use a quality adhesive to
    hold the backer in place. Then do your
    glassing. Sand out 4 or 5 inches from
    the hole so you have a good area for
    the resin to adhere to.

    Or buy the kit.........

    PN..... If you have access to the back side
    of the tub it is always better to glass the
    back too. This will add a lot of strength to
    the repair.

    My folks had a tub side cut away to make a
    walk in shower. When the house was sold I
    fabricated the missing section. I used that
    expanding urethane foam to fill the void and
    then shaved it down to just below the tubs
    dimensions and glassed over it. It's almost
    easy......
