here are the west systems video's on basicly what and how you want to do it

now you dont need to cut the hole bigger like they, also for a 1 inch hole you wont need the piece backing the hole up. i would use 7 OZ glass not roving, roving is hard to wet out with resin. the big trick i dont think they show on the vid is when you have the glass in place cover it with a piece of a trash bag then squeegee as much resin out as you can. the glass is the strength the resin holds it together

part one

part 2
