Yeah, Bear Lake environs has lots of potential. Good for access to Mt. Nebo, Skyline Drive, etc.

Anyone in S Davis or NSL have an trailer I can borrow for the day on Sun

I'm moving my MIL to assisted living tomorrow and it would make it easier if I could do it with an enclosed or sided trailer. My trailer is tiny and flat so it is not the most convinent. My jeep is probably not good for a monster trailer. Just seeing if anyone close by has one I could borrow for the day.

Spread a thin layer of bondo on everything, let it cure 30 min, sand it smooth with an orbital sander. The B&D Mouse sanders work well. Start with really coarse like 50 grit to get it into contour. Apply several thin layers & sand to contour between. Since you used a flexible board to start with, you may need to apply some bondo on the back just for mass & stiffeness.

Make this "plug" exactly like you want the part to be. Sculpt as required.


Is this surface the "mold" side? Assuming it is, add cross stiffeners to the back to hold contour. Bondo works well to bond these in place.

FYI...Tricks of the trade...

1. I prefer to use plywood & masonite in place of the styro board for improved stiffeness.

2. NOTHING beats body filler (Bondo) for mold fab. Name something, I've tried it. (Well, maybe not the cow pies)

3. Use templates. Make contour templates from poster board. Flod them in half, cut the profile with a razor knife to maintain symmetry. Check the contour. You may need several templates for several different "cut" locations.

Suddenly the Rhino doesn't make me feel so geriatric.

That thing should be fun for you. I've been told we will get
our Man Cards back someday.

Sweet. Bought one in 1988 (a used 87) and ran it all over the state as the family explorer when the kids were still little. My brother bought it and still uses it. Between him and my nephews I can probably help you find any part you might need!!

My bros has been modded heavily over the years:

Your man card is secure when your have no qualms about riding around in a Samurai or Rhino. It's the guys with the big trucks that have their man cards all locked up with their wives.
