Here is area tire blew out & needs repair

My idea is to use epoxy and fiberglass to treat exposed wood maybe inside trailer if I can access and underneath. I will wait till it is really dried out. The wrap part is missing and metal is twisted from tire slapping it. $93 for small 7 inch piece no metal to attach to right now. Any good ideas on fixing this area

Most license plates are made of aluminum these days. If you are looking for something to cover the wood. Use 3/4" sheetmetal screws to attach the patch to the wood.

Uhhh, am I wrong or is that the outrigger (black bent back piece in front of tire) that is really distorted? Is that a floor bolt bent back? May be more damage than you think.

Can you get to the other side of it. You need to get the outrigger bent back in shape and maybe welded back to the frame. Then you need to put some more bolts in it. I would paint the exposed floor with house paint, polyurathane or something to give it some waterproofing. You can get some sheet metal from Lowe's and some silver duct tape to do a temporary job.

Thanks for suggestions

I have bed out and having diamond plate made for storage area. Metal fabrication place can do anything and repairs all types problems. I can get picture of top on plywood. Is there a way to remove those 2 screws? You can see rusty one in front not sure I have access to top, other metalic color I can put philps on to remove. Should these be removed first before trying to bend metal back into shape. Thinking about repairing cracked wood with rot DR something to strengthen it up. Not total cracked in half but bent from bolts pulling. I could use grinder and cut off rusty one and have welder remove metal put new piece on.

You may have to cut the screws off. One of them maybe between the inner and outer skin in the C-channel. Can you see the heads on the other side? Some closets have false bottoms.

You can see wires going in and I found one bolt there and another towards wheel black trash can material. I can get tool on either one looks square and welded to alum? My issue is getting them back in if removed and bending that rigger closer to spec. Plus I need bolt hole for new belly banana wrap. Still unsure if I want to fix this area. How can I bend the metal back?

How can I bend the metal back? How do dealers fix these areas on trailers. They said they order some material that goes over area like thick carboard or something I was guessing a sticky black rubber piece like used on roofs. If I could get similar black material in plastic would be easier to bend and make it look good but have no clue where to get some. Replacing the floor is not option so I will need to try fix cracked wood any suggestions on nice product?
