Tops are made from SMC. Are you looking to repair one? If so, regular polyester resin will not hold due the release agents embedded in the SMC during the manufacturing process. You will need to use SMC compatible epoxy.

We took a chance and used 2 part epoxy (that I had at work) and fiberglass mat, seems to beholding so far. Details on our repair is here (about half way down):

Hi, Further question. What sort of weight is a hard top with no glass or rear window?
