Teardrop Trailer – Build Day 9

LOTS OF SANDING

SanderSANDING
Today was all about sanding the primer down.  I orders a 10 Pack Of Assorted 3M 9-Inch by 11-Inch Aluminum Oxide Sandpaper as well as a few of these sanding sponges which I found handy. I’ll need to get some finer grit paper later to finish the paint job.

You can still see some texture but it’s very smooth to the touch. I think I’ll do one more thin layer of primer before I paint.

I cut out the second exterior door skin today. The edges are a bit rough but they’ll be trimmed with some aluminum molding later.

The sides are coming along. I’m going to focus on the doors next, I suspect those will take some effort. I’ve order two sliding windows and a couple sets of hinges to get things started.
