I've decided to do the sills and decorative moldings in the modern version of fiberglass, which is using epoxy and a binder such as Dynel over an XPS core. It's light, waterproof, UV resistant, and finishes beautifully, and I can make twelve-foot sections in one piece.

Bear in mind this isn't your standard hardware-store epoxy; it's a heavy-duty marine epoxy that's formulated specifically for Fiberglass, Kevlar, Carbon Fiber, Dynel, and the like. It's stronger and ligher than the old polyurethane resins that my pappy used to use, and the UV resistance means the color can be intrinsic and won't just fade in a couple of years. Cool stuff.

If I get stuck inside tonight, I may take some time and design the pieces I want to add. It'd be all cool.
