If so, how did you support the wood so it could be fiberglassed back in? Did you glue it onto the side of the trailer first? Something else? Any help at all would be so appreciated!
Here's a picture of the current ledgeless state of things - tho' I've replaced the floor (woo hoo!) since this was taken.
From what I have seen on youtube videos the ledges or anything else is fiberglassed in. In our case we would have to replace the rotted ledges with either wood or some other material than using resin and fiberglass painting
the resin into the fiberglass. Give it time to dry than apply more fiberglass and resin. My entire floor seems to be rotted not to mention the ledges you speak of. Also on youtube you can see how they repair boats with fiberglass as well.
I won't be doing the replacement of the floors or ledges at this time. But I have ripped out the rat fur, and basically all I have left are the walls of the scamp. Let me know how it works out and put up some pictures.
In the meanwhile once I have a chance I will upload pictures of what I have done.
My major problem is that part of the trailer is rotted through the metal, however I think I can add a metal support using the undercarriage.
Best to you.
