Attachment sequence.

Entire skin is attached to the board with two exceptions: 1) The waterfall of vinyl along the entire front edge of the top deck including vent areas. And 2) the lip section of the console (shown in orange below.) Rather than epoxy the console's lip, the vinyl in the lip area is stretch-wrapped around the lip and glued underneath in stages 27-32. This is done to avoid possible issues in this area --- the curves around the lip make a smooth & even application of epoxy difficult.








Below are a few reference images to the areas above...


Stage 1




Stage 8




Stage 11




Stage 15. There is another push back of the vinyl in this area which has yet to be made as stage 16.
