I was planning to leave holes in the top to allow the foam to expand out then clean it up to the shape I wanted. But I guess this would cause the foam to be less dence and loose any stregth?

That will work, but I would go ahead and put the glass skin on the molds first, then clamp it together and fill.

Wouldnt I have to leave holes in the glass then to allow air to escape?

Got the Top completed. Decided to weld up a aluminum top instead of the solid wheel house. Thought I might be pushing my luck with the weight. Glad I did it before starting the finish sanding. I'm no pro and aluminum is a pain to weld. Used a spool gun I have for working on my sons bikes. Forgot to take a photo I was so happy to be done. Removed old windows which looked like they were leaking and filled holes in. Then cut out for some venting Jim Black ovals. Also starting on modifying the control console.

I like the console.

Probably looks a lot better than a solid one, I would like to see it.

thanks for posting
