Before you put a layer of fiberglass on it, put some masking tape over it. The resin tends to melt and distort the foam some.

Also, after sanding it to the shape, put the fiberglass on it within a day or two to hold shape. Because after sanding half of the foam away it wants to shrink up and pull a little bit after sitting for a while.

I could not get something I liked for the rear hood transition. But... easy to rip off and try again! and again.

OK... after 4 attempts, I came up with this. I think I'll run with it.
