Applied some mold-release compound, laid down a thin coat of resin, and then the first layer of fiberglass (the lightweight stuff).

We only applied two layers of thin mat, and then taped-up a vacuum-bag. We didn't have a proper vacuum pump on-hand, and we weren't sure our shop-vac would create enough vacuum to get the mat to conform to some of the more irregular surfaces (like the area around the mounting bosses), so we decided to pack it in sand.
