Default ???how to fix the my tail light and bed???

thanx

well a new tail light is needed of course, but as for the fiberglass, a bod shop will need to handle it.

Fiberglass work is really not that hard, more than anything it is messy. Do a google search for a tutorial. Then practice a little and then go for it.

Some autoparts stores like Napa have fiberglass repair kits. Try that, Nothing to lose and everything to gain! When you're ready for the tail lights let me know I got a set for sale lol
