    Default 1982 Supra Beast Stringer and Flooring Repairs

    Hello, I am working on replacing all the stringers and flooring in a 1982 Supra Beast. Does anyone have any advice for this process and also a recommendation for the fiberglass resin and the best type of wood available for this project? Thanks in advance.

    There are a number of stringer repair threads on here use the search box at the upper right. Some good places to buy materials are US Composites for fiberglass and epoxy. They are very knowledgeable tell them what you are doing and they will set you up with the right stuff. Rotdoctor.com for a product called CPES coat all the wood with 2-3 coats . You are about to start a massive job you have to split the hull at the rub rail and remove the top . Do a lot of research before you start and measure,measure and then measure again. Remember the new floor has to match the top cap sides too high or too low won't work.

    Thank you, we used the CPES that you recommended and it worked great! This has definitely been a massive job but we are nearing the end thankfully! The fiberglass is almost complete and then we need to install the flooring and carpet. We purchased the marine grade plywood but because it is untreated would you recommend using the CPES on it as well to seal it before the glue and carpet? We have read mixed reviews about sealing the plywood but it seems most do recommend it, but my concern is what would work best to seal it and not interfere with the glue and carpet? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you
