Unfortunately, that's all the wood I have to play with on this project. Not enough to joint it together. I'm leaning towards untrimmed as it would allow my fuel tank to slide all the way to the back. If I leave it untrimmed, I'll round over the edge in the cutout.

Find the center of that curve and cope a 45d joint. Call BR549 and ask for Jabez if you have any problems.

Looking good, my friend !!

Time to cut the access for the drain plug


I can't decide to go without trim in the corner


Or use the cutoffs and trim the corner.

Floor in the back for the first time in years. If course, now I have to take it back out to finish refinishing the panels. And cut an access hole for the drain plug. Then I can start thinking about remounting the motor correctly. It's not centered and slightly tilted.

Good idea. I've fixed the reason it fell open on the road though. The hood wasn't secure to the motor, came unlatched, and slid backwards so that the pull starter hit the door popping it open. I put weatherstripping on the hood so it is secure now.

Install on your deck cover where the motor door hits a small rubber pad. That way it will protect both the rear deck and the motor door.

Glued up the last two floor panels today. Now to start clean up and fitting them back together. The big board that broke is SO much better now.
