My “gift” for the new year was to observe the front panel on my 2015 30fqsl Nitro is delaminating. I was struggling to keep it polished as the grey paint went dull after 2 weeks no matter what polish I used. Do I have unreal expectations to think the front fiberglass panel should last more than 2 years?
What’s the best fix here? Replace the panel or use one of the “drill holes/squirt adhesive/clamp repair area” kits? Anyone have any experience with flat panel Deland??

Our front panel now has 5 or 6 large bubbles.
In the beginning I drilled a couple of holes and filled and clamped.
Sure did not last long.
Also, open for ideas.
