I'm going to have to skim a fiberglass hoodscoop to go on it too; you can feel every place there's a structural casting on the underside. I would assume I will cut this exactly the same way then?

Also, do you have a recommendation for a spray poly?
I have had very good luck with Slick Sand from Evercoat.
