[quote="5150red"]Update:
I chose to coat the bottom with the asphalt fence post paint after seeing another builder use it. It seemed so easy.
After several coats of the asphalt fence post paint, I'm A little disappointed in how it soaked in. Next time I will try "the mix".
I managed to flip the floor right side up and picked up my canvas.
Walls are glued and ready to go. Well, the front wall seam needs some extra work. I thought I could kerf the front wall but apparently I was too aggressive and my board snapped. Last night trimmed the front board to the right angle and glued it back together with Great Stuff. Man that GS is messy! I think I will stick with the GG unless there is another large gap I have to fill. I have to figure out how to clean up that joint.

If you plan to use pmf, before you bend a kurfed piece glue the canvass on the
outside of the curve. It will help resist your bending and hold the outside
together.... Perhaps at that point a few more kerfs could be needed.

I still have some trim work to do inside & I need to finish with some type of paint pattern on the outside.
Today I am moving from WV to TN so keep an eye out. Image

Trailer is looking good.
Where in TN are you moving to, Red? I'm in the eastern end of TN, 30 minutes north of Asheville NC.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere ... time for a :beer:
