  1. Starting all the fiberglass work. 4 layers over the wheel wells so far. Starting to fiberglass all of the seams. Time to make it rock solid
  2. Thanks guys! Lost a bit of motivation with all the shitty weather, but ive been getting motivated again!
  3. Been a while since I updated. Been dealing with either -50° Weather or 3 feet of snow fall. So I haven’t done much to it in the last month. Got the wood roof finished. Final thickness is 2.25” thick. Then got the sides glued into place and connected to the roof with 45’s. Still a lot of work to be done, but the next step will be a second layer of 45° on top, attach the back sides, then work on fiberglassing over the wheel wells.
  4. Progress has been slow with the cold weather finally setting in. Was able to use a small propane heater inside my truck to warm it up enough to start my wood roof. First layer is 1/2” mdf. Second layer is 3/4 mdf. 3rd layer will either be 3/4 or 2 layers of 1/2”. So roof will end up being between 2 and 2.25” thick. Once the wood roof is all done I’ll be able to get the sides permanently mounted and things should start moving pretty quickly after that. Layer 1: Layer 2:
  5. I also installed a set of helper springs to help handle the weight. One set installed. Have another set to install if I need it. Super easy to do I was surprised. Raised up the back a couple inches
  6. Small update. Got the sides cut and glued together. Working on figuring out how I want to do the roof. Either a wood roof and then attach sides to that, or just a standard double layer top to the wall.
  7. Made some more progress. It’s not all glued in but that’s roughly how the floor of the wall will be. I took some vacation from work so I’ll be working on it all day tomorrow. Hope to get the floor all done and start on the sides and top. Its coming together a lot faster than I thought. Really excited to get this done working in the winter sucks. But it has been in the 30’s here all week so not too bad. Got some nice lights to work with when it’s dark. Don’t mind the shitty pics. Phone sucks taking pics at night.
  8. Got everything vacuumed out and cleaned up. Still had a half hour of daylight left, so i figured I’d start building right away! Not much but got some pieces cut to be bolted down to start to build off of.
  9. My goal for the 2 18’s was 155 sealed on the dash didn’t quite get there. It was 154’s sealed and just under 156 with window open. Yes my new goal is a 160 with this build. Gonna be close but I think I’ll be able to get it. Got a lot of work ahead of me that’s for sure!
  10. It was pretty nice today actually. About 30° most of the day. It definitely sucks building outside over winter that’s for sure!
  11. After hours of cutting and sawing, part of the wall is out! I sure built it strong. Triple layer all around was not fun.
