Removable back - closed view
Continuing work on the removable back wall. I spray painted the brass bar to look like old metal. I used Rust-Oleum Self Etching Primer for metals to get the paint to stick to the brass. I topped that with flat black, then Cobblestone textured paint. Once dry, I covered the now textured surface with dabs of brown acrylic to bring out the look of old rusted metal. Even with the etching primer, this might need touch-ups over time though the paint finish feels solid.
I cut a new plywood wall for the back using the foam core board as a template. I made siding templates for the sliding back wall, interior and exterior. I glued the sliding wall panel to the free-moving side channel using Weldbond and super glue gel. This is the only place on the side wall that has a two-piece board, but it's not an eyesore. The final trim should disguise it even more. Plus, there will be other things going on that you might not notice at all.
There will be finishing trim along the top back to hide the bare wood that's there at the moment. The wall blends well on the outside.
