Update: So far so good. I CA'd two thin pieces of balsa sheeting in the hole, one on top and one on bottom, curved to fit the foil. This provided an easy base on which to lay glass. I started with a small piece of 2 oz glass and then covered it with fiberglass tissue, first CA'd in place and then saturated with epoxy/microballons. Then I began sanding.

The repair is very strong. I've sanded until the surface is more or less even and will keep going, but I can't seem to get it smooth. There are small ruts and ridges here and there. Is there a final coat of something I can put on that will sand smooth?
