What's your opinion on more layers with lighter fabrics vs less with heavier fabrics?
The thickness of the fabric... Is usually determined by the kinks and crazy angles it has to conform to..... Like thinner fabric conforms easier than thick..... But takes longer labor..... Either is fine.. Like what ever you can get the cheapest.... 90% of my projects are done with 6 ounce fabrics.... ( either carbon fiber or kevlar) It`s a great all around thickness to work with..... I use twill. 2x2.
