    I can get some tomorrow. I'm at work.
    1) I used 24 gauge sheet metal. I had stir sticks cut to hold in place with screws and used epoxy under the metal with screws ran thru it to hold it in place until cured.
    2) Once cured I removed the screws and stir sticks and fiber glassed the back side some so it wouldn't break loose for sure while i was fiberglassing the front side.
    3) Fiber glassed the front side and started sanding away until I got the shape I wanted. Also sanded the rest of the panel as well. It was dried and scratchy in areas on it. Used filler primer and sanded some more.
    4) Lastly got to spray the Raptor on it. Still need to clean the back side up some.

    Does the notch in the back (I assume for the seat belt) show the carpet once the seat bottom is installed? These are pics from the other post showing the carpet peeking through the notch.
    These panels are not stretched or added to.

    I dont have my bottoms in yet. But it looks like it from your pic. I may have trimmed to much carpet. If i did i will just glue a piece in place there.

    At first, I was thinking I cut a piece of my plastic out to help clear the mini tub and wound up having it showing the carpet but, now that I am looking at it, it may just be a notch for the seat belt. I no longer have a seat belt mount to see if I am right or not

    You are correct. It's where the seat belt would be.
