Fiberglass Work Begins! Oh Joy!

First coat of primer. It actually looks pretty good. There are only a few minor touch ups to be completed before I do the final prime and finish sanding.
The center rail notch that I made came out nice. Also, you can't see any remains of the overlap b/w the two canopy skirts. A little more sanding to get the form all set and it will be ready for paint.

I used Rage Extreme light weight body filler and numerous layers of epoxy resin and micro to build up the rear canopy skirt.

I did 4 coats of squeegeed West Systems Epoxy resin followed by a light coat of Rage. Each coat was sanded and blown clean. This eliminated virtually all of the pin holes, but it was a ton of work.
