Gatcombe Roof Repair

Post by nsparkes on Sat Aug 06, 2016 1:48 pm

I recently got round to cleaning the roof on my Gatcombe myself and noticed a hole in the riser just before the rear skylight over the Bathroom.



Can anyone recommend how and what I should use to repair this.
Back in the day when I used to repair dents in cars etc, I used to use plastic padding but no longer know what is best for this sort of repair.

Apart from repair materials any suggestions for paint(colour, type)
Thanks

I have mixed white paint with filler in the past to fill a hole where the solar panel cable had come through and it was ok

Hi Roger
Thanks for the reply. What sort of filler, was it standard car body filler?. I am not sure what is best to use for a GRP fix.

Thanks

Plastic Padding Gelcoat filler will do it. http://www.loctite.co.uk/loctite-4087.htm?nodeid=8802656747521
