Dave, sand the edges of the break a little first. The tears will not completely mesh back together unless you remove a tiny bit. Once you glue back together with CA tape the outside for some added strength then sand the inside. The glass weave should run 45 degrees to the break, alternating directions with each layer. 4 layers for a balanced layup. Once cured you can sand the outside smooth and apply a layer of lighter cloth as any orientation and feather sand prior to repaint. The exterior cloth will prevent the crack reappearing in the finish.
