Terry,
That is good news, another step closer to getting ready to go get the TH out of storage.
Frank

Good Evening, All the wiring is done it takes alot of labor to do this because every light is able to be unplugged in case it needs replacing, we made all wire looms to connect. Finished a simple step that plugs into the receiver hitch to get onto the body from the rear, (will paint with Bedliner paint) Still working on the rear compartments. What do you think brake lights brite enough?

Terry, the lights are looking very good! And as you already know, the filler should be attached to the hood, so when you swing it forward, they will point towards the tire, and when you lower the hood back, they will fit right up against the bumper. You don't want all that road grime on that shiny new bumper! The filler's on my Freightliner were a great place to put tools when doing things under the hood too! Rail!

Good Morning, Rail, Thanks! yup, gotta figure out how I want to install the filler, I'm going to be pulling the hood off to repair the cracks from previous drivers indiscretions with immoveable objects, at that time we will be repainting and figuring our designs. Rain today and I guess most of the week on and off, was hoping to get the rear body buttoned up and all welded so to prep for paint..........

Terry - the Tot'r is coming along well.

Comment on the brake lights - heat resistant paint on the TH or there will be scorch marks!!! LOL.

Starting to think about getting ready to go home. Not sure where the time has gone, but there it went.

Thanks for all of the pictures. Really brings the build to life for me.

Good Afternoon, Thanks guys! Frank, I really would love to get the body done and start working on the coach part, lots of ideas. I do like to do body work haven't done it in years, didn't think I would like to again, but this is different, when I did it before it was a job that had to be done, there was time constraints ect, lots of pressure to get it done and done right because there was more work behind it to do. I like making my own panels, time consuming work but now it doesn't matter. Once the rear of the body is done then I will start on the center compartments, I can start laying out where items go, how big the doors need to be. then I'll start on the inside because the Tot'r will be functional as a tow vehicle. In between that I need to do some upgrades on the TH and finish that up, solar ect. I don't think I will be looking for something to do anytime soon . Gordon, I have to see if they make heat resistant paint in my colors LOL. When do you leave for home? Must be exciting and sad all in one. Will be starting to video again here soon as the weather gets a little warmer. Guess its going to rain here most of the week then get colder, YEAH...........NOT
