If you Use a router and put a 1/4 rabit bit and and staple onto that then you just cut the excess matterial away then you dont have to worry about the matterial after. then If and when you dont have a fluch edge just throw some bondo on it. takes much less time and look much cleaner.

Thats actually a good idea, I have used Navy blue fleece in the past and it was a pain in the a$$ to figure out where to cut.  I will be using some yellow fleece that I have in the future, so I will keep this little trick in mind, nice job!

Im a fiberglass whore!!

First of all, howdy.  I'm currently building my first fiberglass project, a set of door panels for my 9C1 Caprice, with much help from this forum and GCF.  Looking forward to being a member of the community!

I'm using light green fleece, which does allow the panel to stay rather translucent.  I hit the back of the MDF baffle with a good amount of black spray paint and the speaker hole shows up as a strong black circle on the front of the panel.  Like mlazzaro said above, a rotozip with the drywall blade allows you to pretty easily stop when you hit the MDF, but it helps to have a visible ring for reference.

cheers, mr
