I want to start by saying that paint and body isn't something I claim to be good at.
Anything you suggest will be greatly appreciated!

Not really sure why, but the grill on my M1089 is made out of fiberglass. The strange part (to me) is that it is "hairy" now. It had been stored inside one of the toolboxes and I have finally pulled it out so it can be on the front of the truck where it belongs.

Is there something that will seal that "hair" back down? I have heard of a product called Gelcoat.

It doesn't need a smooth boat looking finish. I just need something that doesn't fill my hands up with glass splinters if I touch it.
Picture below so you can see what it looks like...

My battery cover looked like that. I wet sanded it (wear gloves) and painted it with Rustoleum Rubberized Undercoating in a rattle can. It is flat black and has held up well for a couple of years so far.

Great idea!! That would be an easy fix - and it won't have any shine either.

THANK YOU!
