Knowing that there are a few glass-fibre-experienced folk on here, how much mat do I need to lay down to a tail / seat unit? And how much for a lightweight sidepanel?... I've got a layer of woven mat in already, but wondered how much more I need for the parts to be durable...

The woven stuff is 300g/m, so there's two layers of that gone in, with extra in the bits of the tail that I think need it, and I'll probably add some 450g/m chopped strand stuff as a final layer I fink... maybe a bit more for good luck. Or maybe a layer of 100g/m so it looks smooth on the inside. I dunno...

Tail unit persuaded out of the mould, with a little damage to the gel coat, and a little flimsy in a couple of places, but that's easily rectified...

I finally managed to get the sidepanels out of their moulds, aided by trimming down the excess fibreglass hanging out side of the mould, easing a Stanley blade between the mould and final part, and blowing in some air from the compressor.
