Uh-oh... I guess I should have stopped before I sanded right through the mat, then the cloth, then the carbon fiber.


you know, that explains why parts of the hood crinkle like saran wrap, and other parts seem to show daylight right through!

Sheesh how am I going to explain this to the guy who made this hood for me, now that I need another one. Gee Dave, I block sanded through that carbon fiber that you put in the hood for more strength and lighter weight.
...and that extra full length steel rib you put in for each hinge, so the hood wouldn't warp, they're gone... nada... sanded right through them!!

He's gonna say, yep... you shouldn't outta have tried fitting and block sanding my fiberglass... shouldda left it warped and bad fitting... that'll teach you!
