    Your 1000% right on that!! The better the body work now the better it will look finished. Debating long blocking the exterior before gel or block the gel or block both. Plan is to take to 1500 dry then wet sand with 3000 an buff..

    was able to get the anchor hatch glassed in tonight just got in actually. Put 2 layers of 1.5oz 1708 then a final 1.5oz with adding glass to some low spots.
