Easy-peasy on the glassing, eh?

Looks superb. :thumbsup: What brand of paint is that?

Yeah the glassing was no problem at all. I was overthinking it at first but got onto it pretty quick. Its nice to have that skill at my disposal for future projects.

Paint is monstaliner ww2 od green, rolled over epiphanes multi marine primer. Really really happy with it. Pretty sure I got the monstaliner idea from you tony but its hard to remember it was so long ago.

I attached my roof rack using 1/4# SS threaded rod. It was kinda tricky and im not sure i would attempt it again but im happy with the strength and aesthetic. I pushed the rod through butyl tape tightened down then sealed up everything with sika flex.

A very fine build, indeed.

Pretty sure I got the monstaliner idea from you tony but its hard to remember it was so long ago.


And I got it from someone else here. That's how we roll. A den of teardrop-building thieves. :frightened:
