Fiberglass Fender Repair

So when the Girlfriend dumped me off into the water and was headed to park the truck and trailer, she forgot to use one of her mirrors and clipped another trailer without realizing it running the back of a metal pontoon trailer down the whole side of my fender. Fortunately the guy was right there and I handed him $40 bucks for his busted tail light and that was the extent of his damage. I think he knew I was in a world of hurt. and was very nice about it. My options were pretty much take it to someone to fix it, or fix it myself since it is a 94. So after talking to a good buddy who isn't afraid to try anything, I was determined to give it a shot. I bought a Fiberglass Resin kit from Walmart, marine bondo, had a dremel and a palm sander, and a couple of rain days keeping me home from work. I took a ton of pictures through the process so idk how many I will be able to upload. I took the fender to a paint store and had them do a laser paint match and put in in a spray can and then went over it with clear coat FYI.
