Hi Everyone.. new to this. I'm working on a van and have to cut out some replacement panels with curves and rounded corners. I'm thinking of getting a small compact router - something like 1.5 hp - and get a bit to trace out the old panels. My thought is to clamp the old panel on the new birch ply and trace it out.

Would that work?
Is using a compact router good enough?
What kind of bit should I use for smooth edges without splinters?

Will lightly sand and then waterproof the panels after everything is cut out.

Thanks in advance. I appreciate the help! frank!
