Try practicing first with a few pieces of cloth and resin before you take on the fairing. It'll give you an idea of the mess and timing of how fast the resin can harden. Also, make sure you prep the area with sandpaper DOWN TO THE BARE GLASS on the inside or the new repair won't stick and just seperate. On the outside, sand, use a flexible filler and paint. Once you do it the first time, it's a piece of cake later. Just don't get into the habit of doing it often.
Not sure if any of you surf or have ever fixed a surf board but it's the same concept. I like using the surfboard materials to fix body work cuz it easier to work with (catalyst sets faster). Automotive fiberglass has been harder for me to work with.
Fiberglass takes patience and a lot of sanding. If you do it right, you'll have a hard time noticing you crashed at all.
