It's best to add one before fitting for strength and its intrigrated into the console as you will have good access to both sides then fitting to the deck in my experience

Defo, it's the only way you can be sure to get a good fixing, are you doing it yourself ? Have you glassed before ?

If you're getting a GRP expert to do it, then you're best asking them how they think it should be done.

Glassing it is cool ! No need for anything else as long as the prep is done right
