I just acquired a used 1994 (I think) black gold Bell Flashfire with aluminum gunwales, foam block floatation and solid color inner layer and it has:
- One chip about 1/2" diameter about 6" up the bow stem that goes all the way to the carbon cloth.
I’d like to protect the cloth/resin from UV, so where do I get the appropriate clear gel to fill that in?
- Several cracks in the clear gel up to 12" long that show no signs of delam from the cloth. Do I need to do anything with these? Or do I leave them “as is” until something that looks more sinister starts to be visible? They can be felt with the finger tip or finger nail.
Thanks and yes, I know that the aluminum trim on a Flashfire is anathema, but hey, it’s a Flashfire and I can leave it on the roof of my car as much as I want in all kinds of weather and not worry about the wood rotting or mildewing.
