go to home depot or lowes. they sell fibreglass kits consisting of woven cloth, resin and hardener.remove the ground effects piece. using a grinder, grind out the crack to remove any excess fibres and material from the damaged area.make sure you cut into the apex of the crack where they it starts or ends. if you don't it may continue due to stress build up.gring the paint off in the area of the damage. cut a piece of cloth larger than the damaged area. mix a small amount of resin and hardener and apply to the backside of the piece. quickly embed the cloth into the resin. all pieces of the cloth should be covered with the epoxy mixture.push the cloth onto the piece with a orange stick or other impliment. you must work quickly as the resin will set rather quickly.repeat a couple of times to build up he area wih each piece a little larger than the other.you can use resin to fill in the crack and damage on the outside.let each course dry and cool before applying the next coat.sand smooth the outside area starting with 100 grit paper.use spot putty to finish out the repair and prime with sandable primer.refinish with base/coat/clear coat.if the back is indeed fibreglass, you can repeat. if t is plastic you will need a plastic repair kit.if the crack is minor, an inch or so, use jb weld

Thats exactly how but if you dont have any experience with fiberglass you might wanna bring it to a profesional or do a lot of research, before trying to do it yourself.
