Quoted from Gov:

My dad did something similar with his Batman Forever. He then reinforced the bottom inside edge with strips of plywood screwed to the bottom. Filled it and painted it. I think it turned out well.

Quoted from Skins:

Thanks guys. I made a tough call last night. The bottom edge of plywood that extends past the mdf bottom was chewed up pretty bad at the front and rear. It was either, leave them chipped and gouged or fill them to make the edges nice and straight. The down side is the filler will never match the plywood in color or texture. So, that means the black paint will have to run up and around the lip to the exterior of the mdf bottom. Not optimal, but it will look like undamaged plywood when I'm done. I don't think I took before pictures but I will snap a few of filled and then of shaped and sanded.

I've had to do that on each of my routed restorations. It's a pain and time consuming but looks so much better. Nice work, good luck with the rest of the restore.
