Rebuild

Good Afternoon, Hi guys, I completely understand about making sure that the bikes don't go anywhere after all I'd have to fix them if they did . Basically I'm going with the recommendation that the E Track manufacturers say to do. Then I will go with more, maybe with a connecting link to the frame with each one. Big Foot that's a good idea marking the landing gear so you know before hitting the end . I now have the ceiling panels all up in the garage, here's a couple when we started, I have to finish putting lights and all the Rosettes up, trim around the fan ect.

I'm unfamiliar with the term Over Build.

Looks good Terry, It is coming together, and looking like a new unit. Big-foot has a good idea, I have mine marked for fully retracted, so I don't strip a miter gear, never had a problem with over extending, but mine sits low to begin with, so I don't have to raise them as far.

Good Evening, The ceiling is done, still have more work to do like cabinets, more trim work, but the bulk is done, onward and upward. hard to get a pic of it, but here's what I got. Yup, I had to put more staples in the trim pieces on the ceiling. The big light in the center is the LED 110 volt light, the four 12 volt lights will be converted to LEDS, I bought new LED lights for there but they were not bright enough, so they will be moved to inside closets.

That looks really nice Terry! Good work!!!!!

I was just looking at the ceiling in the slides of my Toy Hauler and telling the wife I wanted to get some sort of light-weight carpeting to glue up there... I really don't want to have to put in a new ceiling, just doll up what's there.. There's a little warpage from the leaks that it once had.

Frank, Thanks! Randy, We used Headliner material, it was really not bad price wise, and its lite weight so it'll glue easily, here's a link where we got it. Wholesale Fabric Suppliers | Modern Upholstery Fabric - Toto Fabrics

The plates that I am using are rated (each) for a 1000lbs (if installed right) so I will have four plates for each motorcycle tie down, hopefully I have planned right, maybe Gordon can jump in, he has alot of experience in hauling the bikes in a TH. PushedAround, the way the chock is made they don't flip up when you hit the upright, we used them in the bike shop just freestanding to make room because upright the bikes use less room when we were storing them. Really all we are doing is using the chock to keep the bikes up so we can tie them down. We are building the ceiling panels today, big step hopefully we have figured the process correctly and it works . Have a great day all.

Have not got this multi quote thing figured out. I was all set to have a great time as some of the pictures needed captions. Anyway.. . . .

The back of the chocks could be bolted down but that would be big overkill. If the chock were the only thing holding the bike up bolts at the back would be warranted. Since the bike needs lateral stability the tie downs at the side keep the bike from rising. That leaves the chock with having to deal mostly with shear force to the front under heavy braking.

I installed our chocks with bolts through the floor. Sort of a take on Franks theory on building. I agree "Nothing succeeds like excess!" I used 3/8 inch bolts with large washers to bolt our chocks down. There are four bolts for the mounting plate, but only two 7/16 to hold the chock to the plate. The e-track on the 5er is only screwed into the floor, but every 6". It has held for many miles. I have broken several ratchet straps but the e-track seems to be very stable.

On to the next topic. The picture of the rolling pin. My first thought was "Wonder what kind of pie? Rhubarb?, blueberry?, apple? Then I came to the sad realization: No pie, it is to roll the fabric on the luan. I was sad for the pie part but the product looks almost good enough to eat. ALMOST! LOL.

Finally the last one. The pictures of the LED boob light. Have not seen a boob light for years. But I bet the light will make the garage seem like daylight.

I like the results of the installation. It is looking very professional. At the pace that is going on the TH will be on the road on schedule. Getting a bit ahead now will give some breathing room for the inevitable issue that will be discovered in the future.

Got to figure out how to copy pictures!!

Looks factory. You're going to get people begging you to do their rigs now !

I painted my ceiling with white semi gloss latex usinga foam roller to give it some texture.
Thinking of doing the whole interior that way so I can find mosquitoes easy ! skuh kuh kuh kuh kuh

Good Morning All, Gordon, Thanks for the comic relief , Eleanor has been known to shake that rolling pin at me at times . The "boob" light is very bright, we got that idea looking at some new RV's, apparently something coming back? but we have replaced several light fixtures in the S&B with LEDS too. Randy, your welcome, we were pleased with the company and their products, we did the same thing ordered samples and picked from that. Popeye, Thanks!, that'll work, mosquitoes can run but they can't hide . How's the workcamping going? Going to be a nice day today, rain tomorrow, see what I can get done. Have a great day all.

Hi Bob, Welcome aboard! Thanks! I have to give my DW credit she found it after searching for something to do with the ceiling.
