Cutting 'glass

I tend to use a very small version of an angle grinder with a very sharp diamond-tooth blade for any 'glass cutting I ever had to do on boats and Corvettes (never had to cut into a 'glass trailer before!)

Lay down masking tape and draw your scribe line ON the tape, and then cut along the line. Peel off the tape and there you are.

If anyone doesn't want an excuse to go out and buy themselves a new tool, there is a dedicated jigsaw blade for materials like fiberglass and they get used by professionals for curved cuts. It's a RIFF blade and it has something like carbide grit along its front edge, so it cuts very smoothly with virtually no chipping - they may be sold as a blade for cutting tiles.

Dan Meyer has the absolute best answer. Use stainless steel and you will not have rust.
