Sorry to distract from the earnest discussion of how best to glue up your holes, but what does the Australian team coach have to do with it? ;)

Something to do with density?

He's big, 'ard & straight to the point (and struggles if you use anything longer than a monosyllabic word) so explains things in a simple way, exactly what I was trying to do!

If that's the case you can knock in the hollow part...

I don't think simply gluing the surface of a delaminated area then trying to knock it in further will solve anything. The delamination will still exist beneath the surface. That's much like a paper over the cracks approach.

If anything, it will result in more compression to the effected area, potentially extending the delamination further (or, in Lehman's terms, the hollow part getting bigger...)

It's worth giving it some real attention to detail now. Prevention is the best cure, but repairing something properly the first time prevents it becoming a bigger job later.

I don't think think so in this case.

It looks as if a section of the edge has delaminated in a kind of chunk. I'd say you need to open it and pack the area with glue. If you just gave it a glue and light sand you'd seal the surface of the delaminated area, but you'd have a hollow area in the middle still.

It's all about attention to detail really... :(
