07-06-2014 08:58 PM Tack Strips
The tack strips have bothered me for a while. The originals disintegrated for the most part. Additionally, the path changed due to the bear claws. I couldn't find tack strip the correct size. I finally decided to use some untempered Masonite. The shapes were cut out and three layers were stacked with contact cement. The Masonite is about the same density as the original strips. The rub is that I may not actually need them! I believe they are for the wind lace which I have decided (for the most part) not to use. Any way, it looks good and went pretty quick. The other side should be even quicker. Then I can get on with the panel cards.

Bondo, sand, repeat. Primer!

If textured paint products are used, these are done. If not, they will need some glazing before the finish.

I am hoping this is the worst part of the interior work. We shall see.

07-04-2014 08:01 PM Package Shelf / Kick Panels
After hours of Bondo, sand, repeat, the package shelf was done. A quick shot of primer revealed all the imperfections. Actually, they are so small, I am the only one who will probably see them. I am keeping my mouth shut.

The left kick panel needs finish sanding and maybe some spot glazing. The right one is on its second, and possibly last, coat of Bondo, so it is close.

07-04-2014 07:17 AM Kick Panels / Package Shelf
Spent a good portion of the morning (July 3) building a chicken run for the garden so my hopes of primer by the end of the day went away.

I started by adding two more layers of cloth over the panel clip holes. That makes four layers. I think that should be sufficient.

Bondo, sand, repeat. It looks so easy when other people do it. I am close on the package shelf. The right kick panel will probably need two more rounds and that means three for the left one. Time to get started.

Sanded all of the package shelf. Mixed two batches of filler and applied. Sanded. What did I learn. Mix smaller batches. Try a little less catalyst. Hope to have the package shelf in primer and the kick panels ready for primer by end of day tomorrow.
