    I have an issue where the seam glue has gotten in the zippers for some of the side panels, not allowing the zipper to pass all the way to open the panel. Any one with a recommendation for how to fix this?

    Denatured alcohol on the zipper teeth works well to release the goop.

    ATO do you think it possible to spray these with bed-liner material?

    I noticed something while folding up my habitat this evening. It looks like the 'right' side of the habitat flares out from vertical a bit more than the left side. I can fit more of the surf wax comb shown in pictures under the right side than the left when fully closed. Has anyone else noticed this on their Habitat? Are things like this normal or is this an issue for me? @elcoyote?IMG_0699.jpgIMG_0701.jpgIMG_0704.jpgIMG_0703.jpg

    Not to worry, this is normal. The upper sides have some horizontal flex in them that will show when the gas springs are in their compressed position. The lid still will have proper closure because it is tapered.

    You could if you wanted but you would have to be careful to appropriately mask off areas to avoid interference of moving parts.

    Anyone have any tips/ideas/recommendations for building out internal storage in the Habitat? I think I will eventually cave ($$$$) and go the Goose Gear route, but want to get some cheaper storage options going in the meantime.

    Thanks!

    I ways suggest that you first mock up the interior with cardboard mock ups of your design. This will give you a sense of the ergonomic space and if your gear is going to fit your storage spaces and be convenient to access. The first storage system I built for myself in the 80's was simply built from 3/4 plywood, Formica, glue and screws. While I'll admit that it was heavy, it survived 10+ years of Baja abuse and lead eventually to the more refined systems we build today. I suggest that you research basic cabinet building techniques, watch a few videos on you tube and have a go at it.
