Looking great as always, Cory! I'm a dummy regarding fiberglass. How do you finish it? Is there a gel coat or something, or do you just prime and paint it?

Merry Christmas!

the white "gloss" finish is the gel coat ..
there are always a few touch ups .. if you look around the window area you'll see a couple of areas where the gelcoat has "chipped" from trimming and pulling it from the mold .. so a little filler will fix that up .
also for finishing up for paint .. it needs to have the "shine" scuffed off , so paint will "stick" so I'll take some scotch brite pads . and "take the shine off" .. then it'll be good to go !!

not much happening on the Trekker right now .. I have been focusing on other things ..

but rest assured .. there is Progress and I still WILL have it "driving" this year ..

headliner "pad" is done and ready . I still have to mount the topper/canopy , and build a "transition cover" between the headliner on the cab and on the canopy .

[Linked Image]

Canopy progress is on going .. and hope to have it done this week ..

blocking the gelcoat , and prepping it for paint

so got the roof all prepped and ready for some color ..

I decided to "set" it in place to see what it will look like .. I'm happy .. I still have to perminantally mount it so some of the gaps are not correct , remember , it's just sitting there

Sooo... after all the other custom fabbing you've done - why permanently mount the top? Why not make it removable lie the 4Runner?

so .. not been able to do much <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> ... but getting a little bit done ..

I started cleaning up the inner alum. trim plates , stripped the powder coat and got one into zinc ..
I still want to paint them "satin black" (same black as the rest) .. but heres what I got so far ..

[Linked Image]

also making a new "transition" moulding for the cab and roof seam .. the old cardboard is just not usable again :-/ .. so with some carefull measurements , I trimmed up a 2X4 , to use as a mould , rounded the edges .. and made a fiberglass piece

[Linked Image]

fitting it is next on the list ..
