Mix up a small amount of body filler with the supplied hardener, until it turns light pink. Spread the filler in a thin layer across the section and leave it for two hours for proper dry.
Once it is dried after that sand it with 400-grit paper, Mask the leading edge with the help of tape little bit away from the repair area so you’ll have room to blend and clean rest of the plastic area.
