Screen base fit

I need to get the top decking completed so we can start to get other pieces in place for the planned static display at this years Jersey Air Display.

Did the dust filled job of trimming the fibreglass screen surrounds last night, then rubbed down with wet and dry to get smooth edges.

Then epoxied them in place and will leave to set before putting the 12 or so rivets in place.

Then I can neaten the edges ahead of painting or wrapping …. the painter suggested wrapping with the stick on heat gun based covering that means I can colour match to the Oratex Olive green and get a good finish in the process. Also, if in 4 years time I want to change it, that should be easier.
