I thought it was Mollers who changed his bunks on his trailer but then couldn't launch the rib as the screws were too long?

Long time ago now but I was sure it was Mollers?

I'll get me tin hat in case i'm wrong

Can I get away with just filling with strand n epoxy then sand to blend in n paint or will a larger area have to be glassed in then sanded?

I would dremmel,it up slightly and Gel her up ,, apply some Sellotape over it untill cured helps get the shape level,

Then wet n dry till shaped as req,,, G3 compound to desired finish required


Patience is the key. Leave lt over night if I was you,,, tends to sand better. If left longer more so in this climate.

Your memory is quite good but the fine details let you down. I don't think it was a rib!
