I've been racing on this frame with a cracked top tube. It's a small crack, and it doesn't appear the crack has propogated. I'm pretty confident I can do the repair myself. But I'd like some pointers. Eg, which kit to use, resin to use, how many layers, general procedure, how to make good compression, how to clear coat, etc..

there are two parts. one of them is definitely cracked. the other one (next to the sticker) still sounds ok, but why not just do both parts, just in case?

thanks in advance

It may just be the pictures but both look like relatively superficial scratches. Why not do both - well you may make the frame worse. It sounds like it is working perfectly currently.
