Alrighty… resurrecting an old project that was sitting on the bench frustrating me.
(this is how it looked minus the breather fabric - collecting dust on my bench in garage)
Here’s the start, channels, and wires installed.
(lesson learned here - i would now scuff/sand the paint to give it a bit extra grip, and use epoxy instead of poly)
Really like the result except for the lumps at the 90 connectors…
So now we are pretty much caught up to today. I didn’t feel like the FG/GF was really sticking… and it peeled off easily with just my hands…(that’s not good).
So i re-sanded the top and sides, then used some epoxy this time with the last piece/section of this blue GF. I did not use the vacuum pump, merely wanted to get this functional and usable. I have almost everything to have a 3rd deck for guests - so time to get it done!
I’m cutting some corners and did not pull the 90* wires to fix the lumps. Good enough.
here’s the partially finished results:
Want to repaint the edges black, and the bottom needs some cleanup, and re-drill the holes as they are nicely clogged with epoxy now. Some grip and ready for electronics next. I might leave a stripe of the blue bare to give it some color on top besides grip.
Going to go a single motor setup - trying to pick which.

I have one of psychotiller’s mounts i might try, or get another Enertion or DIYes.
Will update more when i get the next pieces figured out and installed.
Thanks for reading and any questions/comments.
