Bought a 1300 Trillium and it needed several things done so I've been slowly upgrading it and thought I would share the fixes...

First off the floor had 3 layers of flooring 1 layer if vinly rug and 2 layers of 12x12 tile I ripped that out and installed wood flooring I bought at a yard sale the guy had it left over from a project he had done got it for $5.00 a box, 2 boxes was more than enough...

Rebuilding the bench was not as bad as I thought it would be I had some old FRP panels left off a job I had done and decided to go that route and I think it turn out pretty good.........

They had 3/4" plywood but I went with 3/8" and some bracing instead.................

Nice job Randy, like the material on the sides, good and easy to keep clean.

Been working on the trailer you sold me, i think I am liking it better than the first one

Excellent job! Nice looking, too.

Inquiring minds want to know:

Is FRP easy to cut and does it put glass dust in the air when you do?

Wasn't hard to cut at all I used a cordless jigsaw with a fine blade..I first took poster card board and with sizzors cut a patern of the curves on each end of the bench then traced it on the FRP....As far as the dust I had a big fan blowing on me because it been very hot here and there was noway I could have done much work without the fan...I didn't notice any dust on me when through...I've got my doors done and have started recovering the cushions..Hope to get done in a month or so but I'm really in no hurry I'll try to post the progress.......Later Randy
