I had the same concern with my Mk4. I had my brother over and he stated the exact same thing. Light shines through were the gel coat is missing but the glass is just as thick as anywhere else.

i will tell you that my coupe (gen 2) had a similar trait. I noticed that light was shining through the seems in some areas, and i thought that the mating process had fallen short-- turns out that it is simply an area with no gel coat and little mat-- the resin all by itself is quite translucent. One of my seems runs to an edge where i was able to see how thick it really is -- even though i can see light thru it. i would bet your seems are fine.
