I'll start glassing it either tomorrow or wednesday..
more than likely wednesday..
seems as tho I run out of daylight and steam soon thereafter.. Maybe I'm BiSolar
I got the front panel shaved down to fit the sides/edges of the bed..
I love this 1/8" panel, it cuts with a razor blade..
I had to cut the front edge of the bedliner off because it was causing it to ride up some..
I have everything duct taped into place so ti doesnt move and used painters tape to make sure I dont glue anything onto the bed
I cut roughly for the rear panel..
Once its all dry, I'll trim it some other time like I did the front panel..
I roughed it up for proper adhesive promotion
Then I whipped my cacker out and got busy shooting a bead..
before the adhesive I taped spacers to mock the space needed for the hinges..
I also used painters tape to ensure the glue wouldn't adhere to the other panel..
I maneuvered it into place and then hit it with my finish nailer to keep it in place..
got it all squared away and sat some weight on it..
sence I was out of duct tape that I used as my 3rd and fouth hands..
I got the grey and hit the shirts with it because the tapes not happy..
a little less noticable
thats it for now..
I do want to say this.. Liquid nails wood adhesive SUCKS!.. Good thing I'm going to lay glass on this or I wouldn;t trust the stuff..
I ended up using some PL brand polyurethanepremium construction adhesive and this stuffs MONSTER!!!!
definatly the way to go on wood..
thats all I have for now..
