    I'd wait till it warms up to above 50 degrees. Unless you apply it then bring them inside to warmer conditions.

    @maximus4241, typically standard bondo type fiberglass resin and matte for glass. Not sure about the gelcoat that would go in first. Probably best to get all of that online from a marine material website.
    As far as the white plastic, Smooth On makes different urethane plastic materials at different cute times.
