Now that those darn seat rails are out I’m having trouble figuring out what to focus on next. The 30″ camper top is slated to begin fabrication tomorrow, and will hopefully be installed on Friday. In the meantime, I’ve been rushing home after work in order to patch up the remaining rust spots on the roof under the last few minutes of daylight. Beyond that, I’m not quite sure what to do. Perhaps it’s a matter of having too many options.
I’ve asked the kind folks at Fiberine to install the camper top without the typical gelcoat finish, so that I can apply bed liner to the exterior after the top is installed. But before I apply the bed liner, I’m pretty sure that I’ll want to cut the holes for the side windows. I’d better start researching how to cut into fiberglass and install windows. And I’d better start thinking about what kind of windows to buy and where to buy them. And I’d better start figuring out how to apply bed liner.
Gypsy currently has about 40 holes in her floor. I’m starting to wonder if I really need to plug those holes, or simply use them to install the subfloor. Bernie seems to think the latter is a good idea, and validation from an expert always a good thing.
Here’s the quick and dirty diagram of wood reinforcement that I submitted to Fiberine. Not exactly my best work, but it gets the point across.
