Fiberglass Fire Pit Repair


I guess this is the right forum, if not feel free to move it.

My mom picked up this fire pit thing that appears to have a fiberglass structure with some sort of plaster over it that is painted to look like brick (I was COMPLETELY fooled). But its broken and chipped all over, I'd just like to repair it so that she doesn't get slivers every time she touches it.









It doesn't need to be perfect, it was free after all. Just something to patch all the terribleness.

Fiberglass Fire Pit Repair


Fiberglass resin jelly (think bondo or joint compound, but much stronger) found in automotive section/stores. Don't over apply, it's nearly impossible to hand sand.

Fiberglass Fire Pit Repair


Unless you just do a cheap bondo job on this and some epoxy paint it's going to be an expencive fix to do it right.
Look this over for a long lasting solution.

Would love to know how this turned out. I'm pretty sure I have the same exact fire pit that seems to have suffered similar wear. Any tips/after photos for how TSGR's idea turned out!
