After lightly sanding the cured core in the new cockpit hatch, I applied some thickened epoxy to fill flush some of the small voids still present around the edges, and used the remaining product to skim coat/wet out the surface before installing the bottom layer of 1708 over the core, overhanging it on all sides for now. Later in the day, once the fiberglass had cured to the green stage, I trimmed off the excess with a sharp knife.
The other event of the day was the final installation of the dodger, which looked terrific and fit well.
