I am not using epoxy, (polyurethane) Caulk then 3 coats of High Gloss then Monstraliner. To old and crippled up for Fiberglass.
I recall reports here of bedliner separation from plywood after sometime. Don't remember the build names though, sorry.

I can picture a build or two, I only remember it was different brand's not monsterliner, Thank you for checking and making aware of possible flaws, I need can sure use guidance :thumbsup:
Nice build you have going.


Thanks, appreciate my build compliment. After I did a Google search over this site I found the post which was about Raptor bed liner over untreated Baltic birch plywood: http://www.tnttt.com/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=65559&start=15#p1245278. I would be interested to learn other people experience with urethane bed liners put on plywood without fibreglass after a few years of being outside. Do you know such builds?

Yes, the covered in epoxy glass cloth did stand the test of time, the other one that had untreated plywood under a bed liner didn't. So you do not plan covering with glass before bed liner, but have plywood treated with some polyurethane, correct? I personally would go with glass before bed liner, but it is of course your choice. Let me know how it worked out. Cheers!

YEP!

I am using a suggested method by what I consider a wise one. Using fiberglass and the suggested barriers are more time, money and labor;
Since I paid good money to have my heart stopped Wednesday can't say I have any of them. :o

That sealant seam looks appropriate to eliminate galvanic corrosion. I must say that your workmanship is first class! Are you a fabricator by profession?

Thank You.
The corrosion was a large part of the plan, And it is a very good Assembly Adhesive to boot.

Started on my second layer of 1" foam, cutting a chanel for the wiring between the bottom layer and the finnished 1/8" ply to run wiring because the first layer had tubing in the way.
Finding I almost need to get the fan installed it's already getting hot and stuffy, but I am a long ways away from that.
