Finished making supports and brackets this weekend, removed the cove panels & rubber flooring, any guesses what a 25' by 7' section of rubber might weigh ?

I know I need to but a barrier between the 2 different metals for corrosion purposes
After more thought I've changed my mind & will use steel, I'll have less dissimilar metal on metal , metal on aluminum that way

Re: Senza Legno, Senza Pontilli

I want to cut this lip off the chair rail then fasten a 3in piece of plywood all the way down, Think there would be any serious structural issues?

You can always go into the "budget trailer" business....Nat's research indicated they would be in good company there.
Jus' sayin'

Re: Senza Legno, Senza Pontilli

Looks like there's a place that carries this 3M VHB Tape locally. I may give them a call and see how it prices out compared to the rivet option. Only using tape still has me a bit skeptical though!
