The seams and edges are all buttered up with Bondo.  The palm sander will make quick work of the final preperation for Duratex.  If the weekend high temp cooperates, the Duratex will be applied.

Your project is coming along nice.  The palm sander is your friend.  I have plenty of palm sanding on my own project as well.

I have my done... Sounds good. Only curious aspect is that you have to have it "On" for it to charge.

According to Greg at PE, that's not correct.  My first one will charge with the power off, but the "Charging" LED doesn't illuminate unless the power is on.  I haven't yet charged the second one.

 

Is the left channel/right channel orientation correct on yours as labeled by PE?

Thats sooooo stupid... The LED should turn on when charging. It has charged... but I didnt know I could turn off and still charge... thanks for the information, super helpful.

I took your advise and just reversed them.

They're ready for Duratex, which covers a multitude of sins.  Unfortunately, Duratex recommends 65 degres, or higher, for application.  It won't get that hight today, and may not do so until next spring, so painting will be done indoors.

I have never used that stuff. Is it a rough textured paint?

Dave-

 

Using a foam roller creates the texture.  With practice, you can control the texture from almost none to aggressive. @mopar dave

 

I like the texture, but the durability is what I like best.

It’s done.  It sounds and works great.  One minor issue involves Bluetooth.  The initial pairing takes many attempts.  Once it connects, subsequent connections are immediate.
