A Bit More Progress

You opinion please. To do the gap between the body and the bed would you use weave or chop mat?

I'd use torn pieces of mat. Like the ones in my post #730. The most important thing is to grind off the gel coat all around the connecting areas on the body and the front of the bed. 2-3 inches to expose only the raw glass.

Then get the bed positioned and attached with body filler, epoxy or panel adhesive. You don't want any voids where they meet up. If there's a mounting flange I'll even throw in some pop rivets after the filler has set up.

Then it's simply a matter of building up the contours and radiuses with the mat.
