Hey Terry - hear you about retirement. Not sure how I had time to do everything when I worked. Now I work but the pay is really slim.

Today I hoed the garden, started washing the coach in preparation to wax again, did some string trimming around the shed and approach and grilled a set of back ribs for dinner. No time to do work.

The door is looking great Terry! I like the look!

Great job on the rebuild. It is better than new.

Terry,
Sounds like Tim can use your expertise to repair his oopsy on the back of his MH.

Good afternoon, Frank, too bad I'm not closer! I sure would help to put it back together. If it's fiberglass it shouldn't be too bad to repair, (of course I haven't seen it ether) right now I'm doing several fiberglass repairs on the Tot'r from it's other life.

Terry,
I knew that you would help if you could. I don't have the patience to do body work, never have. Always had a buddy that we would trade off body work for mechanical work.

great job on the door, did you use any sealant when you slid the frame onto your door? Seems that that would be petty messy trying that. I'm going to be doing mine later this summer but, I'll be using a fiberglass skin to be painted

Good Morning, Frank, yup you do have to step back sometimes. Deano, The original setup on the frame doesn't use any sealant, come to think about it I haven't seen any that does, but no I didn't, both skins are sealed to the inside framework, I didn't, but you could always use a wood sealer on the inside wood. Today I have to go rebuild the nose of a gooseneck trailer so it will turn sharper for the owner, guess why he's doing that yup dented the exhaust stack on his 1 ton Toter.

Looking good, Terry! Won't be long and the rear of the Tot'r will be finished up! And your "Shiny Hiney" will be complete! Rail!

Good Afternoon, Rail, Yup it's all sanded and ready to paint, but since it's outside I have to wait until the sun goes down some, (the Tot'r gets some shade) you can't paint in the sun. Then wait until I can spray clear and start installing my "Shiny-Hiney"
