I have acquired the three rear under-body aero panels from a wrecked Eco. They were slightly damaged by the fork lift that moved the body in place in the rows. I need to know what they are made of, it seems like a fiberglass composite, and if anyone has attempted any type of repairs.

More to come.

So, have you actually repaired one of these? I am still not sure of the material yet.
No, but that $5/ounce 3M stuff sticks to everything AFAIK.
It's what my local body shop uses on all bumper plastics. But I don't think those shields are made out of the same stuff as painted bumpers.

You could probably look up the instructions on 3M's web site.

They seem to be compressed glass fibers, but they don't seem to poke you when you run your hand over it. So I am still not sure.

After looking at these again abit closer they seem to be a compressed wood/paper product that I assume has been treated somehow.
