    I have another small problem. The fiberglass behind the battery is sticky. Kinda like maybe the battery overheated or somthing causing an area about 18″ in dia. to become sticky. Anybody know what I should do to repair it. I have already replaced the battery as a safty.

    If it looks like battery acid damage you could try to neutralize the acid with the baking soda, then clean up the baking soda and allow the fiberglass tiem to dry out to see if it re-hardens.

    If it’s not battery acid and you cannot determine what else might have caused the damage, you’ll probably have to bite the bullet and cut out the damage piece and glass in a new piece of fiberglass.
