Del...it's kind of up to you...got long arms...you can go higher...I figure that I want to be able to reach into them without having to sit up in bed...I put a trolley top in my tear, and had to think about that for the overhead light...It added another 6" to the height in the center, so put the light towards the front end as it tapers down...I just sort of winged it however...hope I can reach!!

hi ho hi ho of to fiberglass I go.
Image
Three questions.
1. How thick should this fiberglass be so the shape is retained?
2. Should I put a brace at the bottom, like the curved one at the top.
3. How did my shelf issue become a lighting issue? :rofl: :rofl2: :rofl: :rofl2: :laughing1: :laughter: sorry no clapper.
:cheerswine:

Progress

Yesterday, too cold (wind), took nap instead and went shopping.

Today; installed more bracing for the door, and fixed my brothers volvos headlights (darned butt connectors).
Image
I think the hinge spar needs a couple more braces to spread the force forward? Note trim the patch panel before putting it on the bottom.

glassice

Would putting two layers on the inside, and one on the outside count?

Is all your trying to do is protect the wood on the out side ?why do you need to glass the inside other than tie the spares together what tipe of glass are you useing on the out side

Just my opinion, but that has to be the dumbest looking thing I have ever seen. :roll: :roll: :thumbdown:

Wow! That is a truly spectacular trailer. I think there's quite a few people who might not see it here, so I'll start a new thread for it.

My trailer is rounded in at the bottom, if you look at my avitar it is different. If I am seeing it right there is one very small window in the nose, not what I would want to sleep in (maybe it's just me). Very cute trailer though.

progress;

Today I continued work on fiberglassing the inside of the same door I have been working on for a while now. This work goes slow, or maybe I am slow, or both. Pics in gallery.
When my back said no more I went out and installed one subaru bumper and hitch.
Image
:)

ps. has anyone noticed my photo editing of the tag on the back of the car?

Progress;

Worked on more fiberglass and the two braces that enable me to cut off the top of the hinge spar. One of those is the shelf brace, which I made 7" from the ceiling.
Image
The wind kicked up and I stopped fiberglassing.

This is one build that I've been really interested in following. :thumbsup:

I love the curves and I'm really looking forward to seeing your creation. Very cool idea.
