Yea a good dremel tool + accessories is essential. You have to be extremely careful though, i usually dont even cut all the way through the glass, just deep enough that i can tear it away with a utility knife like perforations on a sheet of paper.

I only used Q cell when i was fixing my poly board, the epoxy repair kit i got didn't come with any...should I use it, I have some from fixing my other board...
Q-cell is compatible with either. If the hole is like 1/2" deep or more I'd use it. You can add q cell until its a thick creamy consistency and then spoon it into the hole until its roughly even with the surrounding deck. You can get creative with packing tape, or taped down wax paper to mold the resin around rail dings and fit the board shape perfectly. The resin will set up just fine under the tape or taped down wax paper but don't pull the paper up until the resin is set rock hard. Remember - epoxy resin likes it WARM. Dont leave the resin in your cold ass garage, get up and do the repair outside in the morning this time of year and expect it to set up anytime soon - it wont.
Just be sure to do good prep work and make sure the area is clean before you do the repair. I have always used Sun cure and have had some really good reults with it. I use the mix stuff when its cloudy out. Sanding should be done is steps with a final wet sand for a Glassy smooth finsh
