scottyt is on a distinguished road
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
