    Inner pannel cracked

    So i have experienced a new problem on my T/A. i was rolling up my passenger side window and it would not roll all the way up. so i took off the interior cover on the door and looked on the inside, i noticed that the fiber glass that the window frame mounts to is cracked and where the bolt that holds it in is now rounded out. so my frame is off so it keeps the window from rolling all the way up. fml. does anyone know what would be a good way to go about fixing this?

    You might be able to span the crack with a metal plate riveted to the inner door.
    Otherwise you could try to repair it. The door is made out of SMC (Sheet Molded Compound). Its similar to fiberglass but traditional fiberglass repairs won't bond well to it. They also make/used to make jetski's from SMC so there are lots of guides out there on the SMC hull repair. The best product out there is made by WestSystem but there are others.
