Hereís my and my brotherís latest debate: How much fiberglass does a C16 S&G need if door skins are used for plywood.

Me, Iím paranoid. I want at least 6oz on the bottom and 4oz on the top.
Brother wants to go down to 2oz on the bottom and none on the top.
We both thinking fiberglass tape only on the inside seams.

Your opinions please.
