Fiberglass bodywork

Not sure what section this goes in but decided to post here...

I've been fixing my fiberglass bodywork from a crash, and have been laying stuff on a little heavy handed because I'm a total amateur. I was wondering if this is a good (reinforced glass) or a bad (too stiff) thing, maybe a little of both. If it's bad I can always remove material, but if not I can save myself a lot of time/energy. Any experienced bodywork people out there please weigh in on this.

I used to fiberglass and shape my own surfboards. So when it came to doing my track plastics that I was given that were wrecked. I figured it couldnt be too much diffrent. Im no expert but it came out great. I bought the kit. And made sure to get the screen looking and the mat one. If your just filling in a hole or remolding a whole piece its sort of the same. some people dip some people brush. And that resin will make a mess fast! So I just sanded the inside of the plastics and brushed the area and then set in where I needed it it and almost kind of painted it on or just made sure it was all soaked. Now I put the screen 1st because it has more of a flexibilty to it when cured and I layed the mat on top for durability. So if you go down again it wont just shatter. I used about 2 pieces of screen and 2 pieces of mat in most areas give or take. Doesnt look like much until it cures. Then you just bondo the outside, sand, repaint and boom your good. You dont need it too thick and just cut out pieces to overlap the area a little, no need for huge sheets, then you just waste it. Hope this helps have any questions hit me up.
