Looking to patch up minor scoop damage. Does anyone have pics of the JB Weld or Bondo product they have used on their PF?

There is no metal cliffy that covers the chip on the side. The only thing that exists is a carbon fiber cliffy and it only covers the top of the scoop and doesn't go near the sides at all, unfortunately.

TY.

Bondo, but it won't hold up forever.

Put a cliffy protector there.

JB Weld its hard as a rock and has structural integrity where bondo does not

I say neither.... fix it with quick wood(sandable, stainable)... then put a cliffy over it.

I used JB-Weld on a blown out Monster Bash scoop hole about 16 years ago. Still is holding up well. I always use the one that cures overnight, not the quick cure one.

Yours doesn't look like it's got enough damage for the JB-Weld or similar product to adhere to. Probably just cover with a protector.

Thanks for the replies so far. I updated the post as there is no cliffy that covers or protects the sides unfortunately and nothing is in the works right now so a cliffy for the scoop and the sides isn't an option. There only a topical carbon fiber protectors in the market currently.

I still need to fill the chip on the side if possible.

Do you recall which JB weld you used by chance, so many different ones out there.

The original formula. It turns gray so not sure how you're going to deal with that.

Yeah grey is a tough one for sure. TY.

JB Weld will work fine, but QuikWood is the easiest to work into the shape you need. They make a variation that has metal fibres called “SteelWood” or “QuikSteel”. Overkill but plenty great. Just don’t expect to sand it! Lol

Anyway, QuikWood.

Original Formula, grey JB Weld.... to get a nice flat inner surface, cut a playing card and use it on the inside of the hole. I did this in 2006, Looks the exact same today.
