    If someone wants to charge me more than my consulting rate to work on my house or car, then I do it myself and pretend I’m earning my exorbitant fee. Much more satisfying than writing a check to some dude who’s probably going to do a half-ass job anyway.

    Last call, dude with holes in his clapboards:

    Clean each hole out thoroughly, with a drill bit or whatever you can get in there. If the holes are bigger than your finger, ask your hardware guy for a Rotary Rasp, a bit you can stick in your drill to clean out larger holes. Use the 2 part stuff, like the epoxy products, to fill the holes; bigger holes may take a couple of fillings, as there is some shrinkage. DON’T overfill the holes, as you’ll have a hell of a time sanding that stuff down! Last tip, get some disposable paint brushes and “paint” the surface of the filler while it’s wet, to feather it into the adjacent wood grain. Otherwise, it’ll look like crap from a mile away. Don’t go overboard, but try to give the surface the appearance of wood grain.

    for the fiberglass shower, how about a small hole (1/8″ or smaller drill bit) at the end of all the cracks to help keep them from getting longer. i have done the same thing with cracks in fiberglass on snowmobiles.
