Default Composite repair services in New England



Would anybody know of a good place for composite (airplane) repair services in New England, preferably (but not necessarily) in Eastern Massachusetts? In general, are boat or auto body shops "safe" for this type of job?

Thanks in advance,

Most any autobody place isnt going to know rc model composite constructions or the requirements for light weight repairs.

You would probably have better luck posting photos hear of the necessary repair.

There are very few who know how to work with a composite core structure. When it comes to this type of construction a vacuum bagging system is almost mandatory. If you post pictures, I can describe how I would go about the repair.

Thank you both. Given that it took a while for me to receive feedback, I ended up sending it to a full scale composite glider repair place. It's not finished yet. Fingers crossed...
