    Default updating interior

    Ok guys here we go again busted my ass this sunday roughing in the new boxes, sidepanels and buckets oh still need to make my seat bottoms for the bench and just need to seal them up and start the search for a good but fair upholstery shop any sugestions in east county san diego would be appreciated. Also was wondering if any of you gooroos have heard of rhino lining the wood before upholstery saw a guy post his seats after treating them but he never posted final product so i never got to see if it worked out. What do you guys think of that idea?

    I just did my seats from scratch, I did like 4 coats of resin on it, thinning it on the first few coats to allow it to soak in. I couldn't find any cheap places in north county, I checked every where.

    A little advice from what I've learned re-doing my interior. Fiberglass..... use it on ALL corners and anywhere a joint will be stressed. Also reinforce anywhere wood meets at a right angle with a 2x2. After you're done glassing everything, resin wash all the wood. You'll be surprised how quick the wood goes away if you don't.....
    Oh, and all the sharp edges, corners and angles? Round them all off. If you don't, they'll do a couple things after you spend all that hard earned cash on new vinyl....... cut through foam and create a sharp edge that will easily split vinyl. It'll also look a tad funky having sharp corners show thru otherwise smooth upholstery.

    10-4 sounds like great advice i still have some reinforcing to do on the buckets as well so should not be tough to handle the rest thanks

    1/8 qtr round with router, makes beautiful edges. Multiple coats of thinned resin, allows penetration of the wood, and also keeps the weight down. Looks great!

    When I did my new interior I resi washed it (very very thin), laid down some cheap azz cloth from wal mart, and applied a thicker (but still thinned to about half) resin. You will be amazed how ridgid it makes everything, plus the resin cant ever go anywhere if you use cloth, I think it will last as long as the boat does.

    The cloth from wal mart is something like four dollars for eight sq ft, cheap compared to resin.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!
