Making an opening in the fibre glass seat units

Is there a technique for cutting fibreglass as I want to flush mount a VHF unit. Any advice would be welcome

Sounds like a 'drilling a square/rectangular hole' thread

Yeh, but surely you don't ever want a square/rectangular hole cos of the stress risers. Yer always gonna want the corners roundish.

Did you get rid of those bulk SS fasteners?
