I have a question about an o’fish’l single box that gets laminated under the glass. I am a rookie with a new install and with epoxy ( I have a lot of experience with ding repair and PE resin). I made a template that is a very snug fit and have been practicing in scrap foam. I am installing it in 1.5# eps. I have 2 main questions.
1.) how close tolerance should my template allow for. ie. should it be very very snug, 1/16th" gap around the box or somewhere in between? my assumption is that is should be as snug a possible with glass only on the bottom of the box and the laminate over the top makes it a strong install.
2.) how far below the level of the foam should the laminating surface of the box be? or should it be level. If I used cloth on the bottom of the box hole should I plan on getting that rim level with foam?
thanks for anybodies help with this?
