On UV Protection

not too much time for work today. Changed the color of the wood, though! Used a stain/poly mix (“Polyshades” by Minwax) and this is after a good hand sanding and maybe 5 (?) coats. First coat was painted on with a brush then the excess wiped away, like a normal stain. Every coat after is wiped on with the rag itself, and excess is just rubbed in.

A little more work.

The last of the replacement panels came in!

At least the aesthetic is consistent.

Need to trim a tiny bit of foam on the RH side to keep it from crumpling up. Then some safety pins and/or stitching to tack it together in the right places, a sheet, and I’m done with that.

The overhang on the passenger side at the front will be taken care of. I have one more piece of wood shelf to build that will support it, but I’m waiting to install the heater first, because that gap will give me good access for certain tube routing.

Gonna throw these in this weekend, hopefully.
