Looking like a space capsule, the new dodger sat wreathed in fibre glass.
Today we removed the dodger. I’d been sanding, filing and painting in wood preserver over the weekend, now it was time to apply its glass armour.
After a ride on the back of an F100 flatop, the dodger was perched up on saw horses in the workshop and the work began.
This involved rough sanding the surface to remove all traces of wood preserver and leave a good grippy surface for the resin to stick to.
With the window rebates masked off the laying of the glass began. As the work progressed glass was applied starting at the bottom. The biggest area, the roof top was laid up last.
This is what she looked like at days end. Tomorrow the inside will be glassed after some clean up and prep work has been done.
