Been a LONG while since on the site, so wanted to post an update as to how I FINALLY finished this out.
Front, rooftop and rear hatch were all canvas covered and painted. This stuff was wonderful to work with, so much easier than fiberglass and epoxy. And, seems very durable. Will try to post a pic if I can remember how.

I didn't know what to do with the leftover living hinge material (came in a 50'roll), so I used it around the edges of the galley door.

I still like the style and look, but there are MANY things I would change in the next one. Looking for a trailer now...,.
A big THANK YOU for all on this site, I could not have completed this without your input and all the other wonderful build threads.

Edited: I seem to be loading the same piccie images even though I am selecting a different image. Will wait a bit and try again
