I didn't like those seams either. I could make them feel smooth by scaping and sanding the crap out of them, but I could always see them, as my scraping and sanding would invariably scrap off the top of the fibreglass off the seam, creating a series of white dots where the seam is. I ended up cutting off the seams just before I put them on. Don't cut them to far ahead, as they will fray once you cut off the seams, but I found the bit of fraying disappeared under a coat or two of epoxy, but the seam is an actual bump that just won't go away.
