thinnest plywood i can get?
1/4" but you can get luan which is 1/8", why what are you needing it for?
I cant say id be suprised....
and why is that?
Just a joke man
i think i`ll go with 1/4 or 3/8...the reason i ask is i`m using it for the half top i got for the wall, it should be fine if i seal it real good right? i heard durabak bedliner is good for sealing wood
ok, i was actually thinking about using it for AALs
go thicker, 5/8 or 3/4. it will be much sturdier, provide more sound reduction, and insulate better. bedliner should work fine for sealing it.
the only problem is, i need to get it into the window channel in the blazer cap, or should i just go with my original plan of making a bigger wall, then getting another sheet to go in for the window then fasten them together....or should i just reinforce the back(inside) of the wall with 3/4, or both front and back?
Im not sure of the wall you gonna cover with ply wood so ill say... You could
1. notch the plywood to fit in the groove (multiple runs through a table saw or a dado blade, or even easier, a router
2. use plywood below and plexi above.
hmm, i wish i had know before i cut up my piece of 4x8x3/4 that seems like a good idea, but i think that i`ll need the flexibility of the 3/8ths to make it work the way i want to,so i think i`ll reinforce it with the 3/4
Pictures might help in this situation, I do believe.
well, it looks like i`m gonna have to go with 3/8 or 1/2in becuause its actually going to need to bend straight a little, because of the angle the back window is in the blazer fiberglass top, so...79k20350, anything i can do to strengthen it up?? like maybe screw a piece of 3/4in to the inside of the wall, just below where the window will go? or just use some strapping and make up a little frame type deal?
