    Hey Dan, can you post a few pictures? Having any luck with the hardware?

    Hi Dan, thanks for bringing this up. I’m not too far away from installing the doors on the ICC. I also rounded the bottom by 1/2″.

    I’d suggest looking on the internet for alternative hinges. With a little searching I’m sure you’ll find something that’s a better fit. As for the gasket — same thing — you’ll be able to find something narrower on Amazon with a quick search.

    Happy building,

    Hey thanks!

    For the good of the forum here’s the link to what I think you’re using. I’ll definitely give it a try.

    Do you have a link to the D shaped weatherstripping you used? I like the look. I’m also not a huge fan of what they provide in the kit…that said, it certainly has lasted on my two CLC kayaks.

    @tpkrause86 Hey how’d it turn out. Post some pictures if you can. I’m also thinking of doing the same — probably this weekend. Though, I was considering fiberglassing the other side of the galley flat instead.

    @glcmranger you wouldn’t happen to have a link to the product you used? Are you building the cargo carrier too?

    Thanks, Mike. I saw those posts. Some good examples in there. Wondering if other builders have experience since then with other options.

    @LSaupe thanks for sharing your experience and the link to the article. I’ll admit I wasn’t following the over/underslung language in previous posts.

    Hi folks, reopening this thread!

    I’m likely to purchase the Trailex with 12″ wheels. But 12″ wheels seem SOOO small. What am I missing? I’m not looking to make the camper into some offroad ADV rig, but 12″? Has anyone used a trailer that has a suspension and “real” wheels/tires?

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Okay, thanks. So it’s essentially a quart per coat on the camper – maybe a touch less. Appreciate it.

    @adamdj the way I learned from CLC was to wait for the layer of epoxy to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch…then apply another layer. If you wait longer than a day or two you should give it a light sanding before the next layer of epoxy.

    Again, so much of this depends on temperature. I just put down some fiberglass and the first fill coat of epoxy on a part of the Integrated Cargo Carrier (ICC). It’s in the 40s here in Chicago. It will be tacky well into the early hours of tomorrow morning. But if it’s 60+ out and sunny it’s likely to “dry” in about 4 hours or so — at that point I’m personally comfortable laying down another layer of glue.

    @adamdj,

    In my experience, it’s best to keep adding light layers of epoxy until the texture disappears. It will disappear. So much depends on how light/thick you’re laying it on. Also, as in everything in the epoxy world, so much depends on temperature.

    My advice is to keep rolling on light layers of epoxy until the texture disappears. Now, in my experience, there are always a couple of spots that for some reason are more stubborn than others. Keep at it!

    That makes total sense, @scoop. Not sure I would have gotten to that conclusion on the drawer pucks for a while yet! Low friction tape work well?
