lots done lately
A flooring done with 1/8 plywood....1.5 rigid insulation board, and another 1/8 plywood. All of it glue together and it make for a very strong and stiff platform. Tested it on the truck and there is no flex.
One of my biggest issue in the past with making trailer is not doing a good job with ceiling panel. i never been able to have then glue nicely with no visiable mechanical faster. So this time, i decided to do the ceiling first. I flit the pod upside down and did the ceiling as if i was gluing a floor...and using gravity as my friend. Let it rest for 24h, turn it back on it s floor and i have a solid glued panel! using polyurethane glue for aluminum to wood is unbelievably strong.
then, it was time to skin the pod using 0.04 aluminum sheet.... and VHB tape to glue the panel to the aluminum frame.
at this point, i m still able to handle the pod by hand so i m guessing it should not be much more than 120-150lbs at the moment. should be able to finish under 300lbs
next step is adding insulation board between all ribs, gluing the inside finishing panels, vinyl wraping the exterior and installing the windows/door...
Received the door from ebay! tried to see if it fit!!! so far so good!
