To answer the questions about the tie raps for the stiches, above is a picture of a tie rap in a fillet of epoxy. Once the epoxy is dry, you can cut or grind the tie rap.
Once the tie rap is cut off, you can lay the fiber glass.
In areas where the wood is highly stressed, I leave the tie raps and increase the thickness of the fillet to hide the tie raps. There are great chances that the filet opens without the tie raps, prior the fiber glass is in place.
