anyone work with fiberglass/bondo???

I want to get rid of them dumb ass bug eye turn signals on the tail of my gen2. How hard is it..or how would I need to prep the plastic to allow fiberglass mesh to adhere to it? I was thinking of laying like 4-5 pieces from the inside..then cut pieces to layer from the outside...filling the hole until its nearly flush. Then smoothing out with a plastic resin or bondo....sanding..priming and painting. Someone or somewhere though I read sportbike plastics wont allow fiberglass/bondo to adhere...any tips/tricks to make this work??

I am not an expert by any means, but I have used fiberglass on the inside of farings for crack repair. I just scuffed down the area I was going to lay the glass and it worked perfectly.
