Terry,
I agree with WildeBill the bed liner is a good idea, it can still get slick when it is wet, but not near as bad as a plain painted surface.

Looks great Terry!

Glad the weather is good. Been good here as well, mid-to high 80's and sunny all day. Last night we had a thunderstorm pass through but it missed our place. They are calling for more of the same all week.

Is the next step painting the truck body/sleeper?

Terry,
The back of the Tot'r looks great. You have done a fantastic job on her.

Lloyd, Frank, Thanks! Lloyd, I think the next step will be working on the fuel tanks and bat box..............."I think".. plans are always subject to change . Of course there's the rear of the coach body, I need to put aluminum siding on,.......then there's always the radiator/intercooler upgrade..............YIKES I guess I need to get moving LOL catch all later.

Terry,

You need a big pole barn with a paint booth and then you could have a fulltime job doing other people's rebuilds. Wow, that would sure mess up the retirement!

Sure looks good though even to my untrained eye. Nice job. Lynne

Hi Lynne, Thanks! I've been fixing and building things most of my life, and enjoyed doing it, but I've told Eleanor that I wished I'd started doing this sooner I really do enjoy this.

Sometimes it takes awhile to find something you want to do. Some never do.
