Here's a series of pictures showing the repair of a heater box cover broken in the typical area where a passenger's foot breaks them.

A styrofoam block was carved to the basic shape and
a layer of clear plastic taped to it to provide a
rough form for the fiberglass repair.

Repaired area is primed with DPLF-90 epoxy primer.
An off white colored paint is dry brushed in a random
pattern to mimic the strands seen in the original material.

A "candy" translucent paint was created by mixing black,
orange & clear. This mixture is sprayed over the repair
area to blend the color and make the "imitation strands"
appear buried.
A final coat of satin clear finishes the job.
