Alright, it's finally time for another update. I've been working on the the side panels for the last couple weeks and finally got them just about ready to paint.
Lots of body filler work:
It feels really good to have finally put some primer on these pieces today. They still need block sanding and a couple more coats of primer, but I should be able to spray them gold to match the bed some time this week.
* Decide on shape of and cut front window opening.
* Put some trim around the base of the shell so that when it's down on the bed, it won't slide sideways/forward/back.
* Assemble lift hardware... Still haven't made a decision about how to do this.
* Glassing the top... I'm going to start with laying strips along the joint of the front and back wall w/ the top. Then laying big pieces across the top. Then around the base where it meets the bed. then gutting the insides and starting the interior layup.
