160. Pipe covers update

Entry:2023.05.14 / Work:2023.05.13

Replacing the sponge cover that was covering the pipe on the folding base for the storage boxes because the surface of the sponge cover was losing its elasticity and becoming hard and ragged. This was built in 2015, so eight years have passed.

This time, I used the smooth surface type and set it up through one long piece.

After about 3 weeks, the area around the curve began to tear, so I repurchased the same type of material as before and set it up again. Although it feels a little thin, let it go at this.

A stainless steel pipe with an outside diameter exactly matching the inside diameter of the pipe is placed inside to connect the top and bottom.

Pulling the sponge cushion to one side reveals the screws connecting the upper and lower pipes.

The surface of the sponge was hard and crumbly to the touch.

Pipe cover update 01

The bottom of the RV box is fraying and creasing where the bottom of the box rides.
