If there is enough material, 3 layers is typically prefered. The first layer, one laid 90 to it,.and then one final laid at 45. In this type of component I wouldn't be overly concerned. I did a wet lay up with two layers, one at 45.

This project of mine is going to be delayed a bit...I want to do it after I get my steering rack replaced...and I spoke to the dealer today who said it may take another 3 weeks to come in. Until then I am amassing the parts/tools to do this.
