Sure thing, Chris, I will get a pic later today for you.
I'd like to see that, too. I have one of these ... and a project/plan for it ... that's close to hitting the bench.
Always appreciate the heads-up and the tip! Thanks!!
Thanks for reminding me, Dan! My C.R.S. (we all know what that stands for!
) kicked in again and I totally forgot, sorry Chris!
Anyway, since Dan reminded me, I have the pics for now both of you, and anyone else for that matter!
The little "square" I mentioned where you start the thin super glue.
After you put a couple drops of thin super glue in that area, hold the trailer at about a 45 degree angle like this,
and that will allow the super glue to run down the joint where the roof and walls meet.
If you use a little too much, like I did, don't worry, it will just run down the front bulkhead like this.
The flash on the camera makes it look bad, but without the extra light, it is barely noticable, it get quite dark in there! EDIT:
By the way, these are the mini clamps I used on mine, and you can get a small bucket of 20 or 25 for about $5 at Big Lots just in case you don't have any or not enough.
This is a better close up pic of how you can hold the roof in place while you are gluing it down, just fold the little pads out on the clamp and put one in the first cutout in the top of the wall and the other on the lip of the botom of the roof. The pic I posted earlier I had them on the molded in rivets on the top if the roof, but if you look real close, you can see a few slipped into this position. I also did this before gluing, that way the roof is in line with the top of the wall and you get the channel for the super glue to run down in.
