Well some more things have been happening in the ole garage.
I knew this project would be a lot of epoxy and fiber glass.. but never knew it would be quite this much epoxy.
I've saved you all the boring steps of glassing and epoxying both sides several times. The bottom has three layers of glass on the bottom, one layer on top. The side panels have a layer on each side plus countless flow coats of epoxy.
Bear and steamin' came over and helped put all the panels together. It was like wrestling a grizzly getting them all situated but It was pretty crazy to see it actually take its official shape.
Steamin' christened it with it's very first PBR
I've been thinking a lot about what it's going to look like come spring time, and made an extremely technical blue print.
But until then, I've some fillet joints to do..
Thickened epoxy fillet
With two 9oz glass tape jobs over the top
Damn do I ever want to take a pull of 10 year in this soon.. preferably under the cover of a greener than green canopy that overlies northern Michigan rivers come summer time.
