OK, my issue is with trying to find 5/8" or 19/32" Marine Grade Plywood, it is just not available in San Antonio. Next course of action was to try the gulf coast, called lumber companies in Corpus Christi, sure it is available in 3/4" and 1/2", nobody has the 5/8".
Possible solution is Roddis Lumber here in San Antonio, they can get 5/8" Fir (outdoor grade) AC plywood. If I coat this plywood with roll on pickup bed liner, will this work?????
Sprayed the first coat on, then found that I could not see as well as I needed because of the POR on my safety glasses. The second coat and the final top coat went on with a paint brush. The spray gun weighs near a ton at the end of the first coat. The brush allowed me more control and saved my arms. Final product looks pretty good.
Winter in South Texas: shirt with collar and long sleeves. You Yanks reading this ought to understand that one may wish to wear an adults shirt, but the climate can leave one prostrate without careful choice. I won't miss it when I'm gone.
Wedding, schmedding, it's too hot to work on a TT in July. Them kids need to understand priorities. On the other hand, have a couple of heavy lifting chores for the youngish beered-up single male guests. Impressing single females never goes out of fashion.
Great size and great year of production to have chosen. One of my favorites.
My oldest daughter, not the one getting married, all of a sudden got real interested in this trailer thing I'm working on........I tell her that I am worried about the belly pan installation, reading the "forum" I see that some people have had to attempt this several times to get it right, I canít afford to do this more than once, and have the shell back on in time for the wedding.
The kid is incredible, she starts doing research to find someone who can either help of "do the pan" all together.
After three responses of "too busy right now" she finds Bob Nebergall right here in San Antonio. Bob has like 20 years with one major aircraft company as well as a zillion years experience with local "Dee Howard", I think.
Bob (the belly pan man) to the rescue, in 6 hours Bob has installed the belly pan.
The experience of watching an expert work, in it self, is really eye opening. The techniques and his process are a real education, after helping him work I think the next one will be "no problem"
