    DO NOT use one of them kits. They're useless. I used to be a GRP laminator building Yachts and Robin Reliant body shells would you believe (yes it was me, sorry ). Find a GRP laminating company in your area and nip in and get one and a half ounce matting, resin and catalyst from them. You'll also need acetone as well for cleaning up afterwards (but keep that well away from your work). Give the inside of the splitter a good roughing up before you apply the mat and if you can get a laminating roller from the company all the better. Just use normal filler on the outside. Pity you aint closer I would have done it for you
