I am packing the built-ups now. All will go out this week.
The wood chip car -- on a double sheathed box such as the one drawn, first there is a framework. To that is applied the vertical outer siding. On the inside the sheathing is horizontal and only goes up half way from the floor. Depending upon whether your car is to be loaded, half loaded or empty will determine how you handle this. There isn't really room for the existing cast plastic sides and a frame and then the inside siding. It would be too thick. I would make the framework level with the inner sheathing unless the car is half full. In such a case the lower inner sheathing wouldn't show anyway. The inner sheathing and framework is only to be indicated thinner than it normally would be.
Hope I haven't been confusing!
