Small update with no photos......but tonight, I cut the skirt base, sanded it, bondo'd it and glued it on. Also, in the process I bondo'd a small portion of my skirt that needed it......everything is smooth now.
Also note, the skirt base wanted to drift quite a bit when I first glued it. To fix this, I put four nails in the center of the skirt base going into the skirt....This will eventually be cut out for the 3rd leg. I also used 4 clamps around the edges.
Tomorrow, I hope to get some ribs done, at least one side (I hope!), and if I do, i'll get a photo up!
