    Unfortunately when I came out this morning the entire right side shrunk up, so I have to redo all the details which needed to be done anyways. Ill post some more pics tonight.

    Any constructive criticism is welcome. I could always use some extra sets of eyes on this thing!

    Is that some sort of expanding foam?

    Small tip: If you ever find yourself doing this again, I recommend you use insulation foam instead........It's easier to shape and it isn't as uneven as expanding foam.

    Anyway, looking good!

    Is it also a spray foam or does it come solid?

    Spray, get the closed cell type, much less air, more better to work with.

    But i'm surprised you guys use this stuff... here its $10ish a can... for the cheap stuff...

    So where is this at now? Would love to see how this ended up coming out. Any learned tip/tricks for working with a scratch bucket build using this method?

    Thanks for sharing!
