Thumbs up

more pics coming soon.... Its funny the guy said he just came back from a trip and that she was ready to go. Our first trip we went to Gatlinburg (our favorite place). the ride down there was great until you got over 45 mph and you couldn't talk to the person next to you. brakes went out on our road upon returning. So with my wife being the reason I bought it due to her illness I decided come hell or high water it was going to be as nice as I could possibly make it. I have never been good with engines or building things but am extremely adapt at books and youtube. lol. my mom and wife died when they saw me strap 500 lbs on my back and climb a ladder to put the rubber on the roof by myself....to their credit they tried to help. when people ask why I went through what all I have to make it nice, I show a picture of my beautiful wife and daughter.....So, yes it was worth it, every ounce of sweat I poured, every time I screwed my hand to the roof, yes that happen twice....lol. and every trip we make.
