Goerge,

I think this profile is a lot more pleasing to the eye than the square 4x8 box. 8)

Think you have a winner. :applause: :thumbsup: :D :beer:

GPW -

Thinking about heat application related to this build, I had the thought of maybe doing "post-installation" heat. Perhaps the heat would aid curing of the glues and may relieve some of the internal bending stresses in the foam. I'm not suggesting heat high enough to melt the foam but raising the temperature 80-100 degrees using perhaps one of the small temperature controlled electric ceramic heaters.

Now back to this great build!

Take care,
Tom
