I've taken off my quick jacks in the front and I'm tired of looking at the empty hoies. I'd also like to fill in the "vent holes" for the fake brake cooling. Can I just slather rage gold in there or should I fibreglass first or last or ? Looking for best way, not to crack a couple years down the road. Thanks, Bob

Filling with Rage will not create a satisfactory repair. The edges need to be ground down to fiberglass and beveled back aout 3/4 inch all aroun, a form place behind the openings, and then 5 or 6 layers of fiberglass rolled in until the areas are flush with the surrounding contours. The back side should then be sanded with coarse sandpaper and another layer or two of fiberglass mat and resin placed to sandwich the repairs in. Then it's just sanding off the high places, applying a coat or two of Rage filler and sanding until smooth and to contour.

Agreed. Fill them with fiberglass.

Here is what it will look like after the holes are filled:
