An A/C install write-up would be great.Took the top off to grab some of the last bits of sun we're going to have here in the PNW until June...
Touching up a few things on the top while it's off as well as a couple paint corrections.
Will be installing air conditioning soon as well. May do a write up on it.

Then glued it to the bottom side with poly resin and used gel coat to let it harden fully

This is after 8 layers of biaxial fiberglass, 2 layers of chop strand and 1 gallon of resin. I ran out of resin, but it could have used 2 more layers. Also should of used a level to ensure the front was flat. Resin is a bit proud toward the front, whilst the rear is needing more resin.

Think I am done with modifications for now. Things done to the cabinet were:Started to assemble my blast cabinet so that I can start to clean up and paint all my smaller parts such as the hinges and such. This is a cheap harbor freight cabinet, but I think it will perform fine for me. It is taking a while as i am making lots of the recommended mods I saw on YouTube as I go.
