I would be so annoyed after paying quite a substantial amount of money. The items you have received are really poor quality. Shame on the supplier for not at least offering some kind of solution, especially as they were a well known member on here.

Hope you figure something out and keep on with the project.

I would try repairing it with the resin, not the filler. Try putting on some resin first and then finishing it of with the filler. But if holes keep appearing, he didn't roll the reinforcement in the resin enough to get a good bond or he mixed in to much of catalyst and the resin reacted to fast and already started to harden. If so, there is nothing you can do about it now, I am affraid.

Try putting fibreglass sheet behind the hole, then fill the hole on the other side with Fibral (can get it in halfords), then you can use normal polyester filler to smooth the surface out. It should be very strong like that.
