Buyin’ stuff

Stopped by a local paint store today and picked up a large can of “Restor-It Epoxy Sealer” off of Bill’s recommendation. The ‘demo piece’ of the stuff they had there had a fully rotted piece of wood soaked through and through with the stuff, and it was hard as a rock. My hopes are that I can use the stuff to harden up the Morgan’s original wood frame to a state where it won’t fall apart.

    Is there still enough of the original wood intact? I thought much of it was already a lost cause?

      I won’t be reusing it, but at least this way I can try and prevent it from falling apart any more than it already has.

        Ah, ok. That makes sense.

        Do templates exist, to recreate the original wood forms?

        • flaagan flaagan says:

          The only ‘templates’ I’m aware of are back in England. That being said, there are a few companies selling reproduction pieces, but they’re a bit expensive. There’s always the possibility of getting in contact with a local coachworks or woodworking person.

          This is all assuming I redo the frame in wood and not in metal, but that’s still kind of up in the air.
