JaycoEagle10, No problem, I knew what I was building, maybe didn't explain it well. The ramp hinges/torsion springs should be here friday, then I can start on the ramp itslf, should start coming together.

page 24,,,,lol....how high will it go..lol

it can be scary waiting on paint to dry,,but with your capabilities i knew it would turn out good ,,,,,u cant over prep for paint,,,,,thats the one thing i love the most i guess in a build,,,prep and paint.....the dw and i are pretty good with painting,,,,something that really brings it out...i remember a week ago after painting the aristocrat all the nieghbors came up and asked where or when we got the new one....lol

funny we are always into some kind of project here and we live on a dead end road thats a lane an a half and everyone slows down or stops to see what were doing now....lol...76 year old father in law accross the street is always remodeling his house by him self, my son next door is always building cars ground up,and adding on to his garage,,,he is putting another 3 bay addition onto his 4 car garage so it will be a 7 car garage with paint booth,,,and now we are starting on the old holiday rambler...were like a circus here...3 ring attraction...lol

keep up the good work ole buddy,,,i dont know what we will all do when u get ur project done...lol

Bap, Nice to live in an area that has builders all around, nobody complains. Nice to have help around also, maybe too much at times......I like to paint, I also ran a body shop along with the auto repair, just got to be too much. When this is done I kid with DW that I'll sell this one and build another one without the mistakes... Hinges came today.. rear ramp will go much faster now

Bap, I'm not a drinker, but in my younger yrs I've had some of those homemade brews. Most come with a kick that sneaks up. I will be working on the ramp this weekend.

HH, I sure hope so, after all the welding and drilling ect. I'll have to paint it, and its not the best temp for drying so should hopefully install monday. Just got a call from the axle supplier, 6000lb Dexter axles, 12" brakes, tires, rims, springs and everything to mount the suspension......$2375.00 should have everything by the end of next week.
