Rear Cabin Wall

Postby jwv630 on Wed Jul 21, 2021 5:33 pm

Hi Guys n Gals(?)

Does the bow side of the rear cabin wall get 3 coats of epoxy before it's installed? I cannot find anything in the PS manual that addresses this...

Been tryin' hard to get 'er done - but I'm starting to think it's gonna be a multi-generational project...

Thanks; best wishes

For parts like that, I usually did the first two coats of epoxy and sanded before installing, leaving the
last coat and final sanding until everything was assembled. This would allow me to clean up any
excess glue or accidental damage without having to re-do any of the epoxy coats.
