You reminded me Randy, I haven't done that in years and one has wax! As I remember it was called "B" coat, with the first one you would use without wax is called "A" coat, is that right?
The tearing the mat, GREAT
idea! Yep, never did it that, LOL, I can picture a particular job right now on a 65 Vette hood where you could see the repair when it got warm. DAMN, great to learn this stuff years after doing it wrong.
