I just used a good exterior grade primer, 2 coats. And 3 coats exterior paint on the bottom of the floor. Epoxied the bottom of the walls. PL'd the walls to the side of the floor sandwiching the verticle leg of the frame angle iron. It is sealed nicely. I used up any varnish I had in the house on the exterior. Thinned 50%, then 25% for the last couple coats. Covered with aluminum skins. Maybe overkill? But what ever it takes!!

Got some poly and stain on and finished the interior cabinets... I've finally quit worrying about everything and I'm starting to get Jazzed up... It's amazing I've built all my cabinets out of scrap 3/4 birch plywood.... very cool.... :D
