I removed the factory bimini and installed the Monster Cargo Rack this spring. I removed the old hardware and want to plug the holes in the fiberglass to clean up the look.

Any thoughts on what to use & where to buy? I was looking at some automotive fasteners, but can only find in black.

Here is a pic of the holes:

In the hardware dept of Home Depot they sell little plastic hole plugs in all different sizes- usually in white or black but you could paint them if you needed too. The right size plug in the right color would make the holes a lot less obvious.

Consider a little two part epoxy putty. Finish with matching fingernail polish. I have not used the epoxy before, but I did cover an area of missing gell coat with fingernail polish and it has held up for several years.... Not totally invisible, but acceptable in my book.

I have two options since I had the same problem. I used a nonskid on my back holes and filled the other holes with Marine-Tex, should be close in color for you. I had to add a dab of black to match platinum. Green in the mail DUDE.

I know the best way to take care of those holes. Money! Lots of money.

I'd have the area gelcoated but thats me.
