Its all a matter of technique. Use larger pieces of cloth than needed, wet out to the edge and cut back to avoid fraying. If bonding on top use peel ply. If finished part use plastic, but it is difficult to get the plastic to sit down flat if the part has any compound curve. Otherwise clear coat is required = a lot of extra work. Do not approach composite work with a metal mind set. Use more cloth than needed and cut back when still wet. Most composite parts that are not moulded are ground with a sanding disc to reach final size.
