My kit ships this week. I have a question about the order of building.
I have the Teardrop and the Integrated Cargo Carrier Box (ICC). I will get the trailer once I have these done (sounds like this is best to save for last, plus I am tight on space).
Wondering if anyone has thoughts on which to build first. I was thinking about the ICC first since I am new to this (especially the epoxy part). The box seems a little more straightforward that the teardrop and I thought would be good practice for the rest.
Does it matter at all, would that be a good place to start? Any thoughts are appreciated.
Might be best to start with the Storage Box. Smaller amounts of Fiberglass and Epoxy too. Errors can be sanded out and redone. From experience, I can tell you the covering of the shell is a big task so a little practice would be helpful.
Agreed. Start with the ICC. However, it had its own challenges. Building the drawers is not a problem, but I had some issues fitting them into the ICC. Lesson learned = start with extremely thin fillets! You’ll get lot of good practice doing the whole stitch and glue thing! One more tip: make sure you build the box (and the camper too) on something that is absolutely flat.
