I got some material for the pilot phase and hope to have it finished soon. The pilot phase will consist of:
- 2x Deck box
- 2x Transition
- 1x Faltbottom
This will give us a good idea of the plans will work and if the shop can build according to the plans
This is a few photos of the raw steel materials:
I got a 2.5mm and a 3.0mm metal sheet. If the 3.0mm bends without any problems I will use the 3.0mm sheet on the surface. This will allow more grip for countersink screws/bolts to keep the surface on the frame.
Will use 60mm coping based on trusted source recommendation.
This is the paint used for:
- Frame Primer: Rustbond Penetrating Sealer
- Frame Top coat: Carbocoat AD-51
- Metal Sheet Surface Primer: Carbomastic 186
- Metal Sheet Surface Topcoat: Carboline 133
