Hello All,

Gordon is that a "Shiney Hiney?" Looks good. I need to get my MH washed this year yet. Going to do it before we go Casino camping on the 16th. Man is this summer flying by. Been busy and not getting much camping done.

Lynne

Thanks Terry and Frank;
On a roll. Started to polish the 450. Lot more real estate than Janet's car and a lot taller. Supposed to rain again tonight so it will be too wet tomorrow to work outside so will continue with the 450.

Don't blame me Lloyd, With all the construction around here, it is so dusty that I refuse to wash and wax mine till they are done. Then it will be the truck and the 5er.

Hey Gordon,
Looks great saw the glow yesterday in my rear view mirror, But won't it get dirty just backing out that long gravel driveway?

beamsil,
You haven't even washed the MH this season, Its Aug 1st
I bought 2 more cans of wax but am going to concentrate on the Fiberglass repair. I'll have all winter too finish getting her waxed.


Harley1994,
I bought a set of axels for our 99 deville concours 6 years ago and still haven't needed to install them. $400.00 bucks sitting in the corner of the garage.

Lloyd, I thought the wife said no mudding in the Jeep?


Going to take my brother out west a ways to get the steering cable and his rebuilt prop for the pontoon. Then I can go fishing of course keeping my foot elevated till I get the big one on line, then watch out.lol
Tim

Yup - it rained again last night. After the forum I know where I will be.

No the car will not get dirty. It is washed rock and the rain is keeping it clean.

Tim - glad you are having a great time. Fishing sounds like a great sport. Especially on a pontoon boat. Let's see! Zero gravity lounge chair, cool beverages, umbrella, fishing rod, fishing rod. I would have to tie the rod to the railing because I would be busy napping. Let the fishing begin. LOL

Good Afternoon, Well got some supply/parts shopping done this AM while it was still raining, we've had over three inches so far, it's dwindled to showers so in between we got the one crossmember fitted, now need to weld it up and build the various mounts to be attached.

Geez - just noticed I have two fishing rods. Is that legal? I doubt I will be able to multi task to look after two rods. Obviously need help!

Man, I feel for you folks in the *rust belts* of the country.
My biggest concern is gravel and cinder chips in paint and windshield during our winter trips to our place in Oregon.
Have never had any rust issues on 1992 Ford F150 (sold with a 189K two years ago). Our new to us '05 Chev 2500HD at 88K looks almost new underneath after twice monthly trips during the winter in snow, slush, ice.

Terry,
Looking good on the crossmember, it will look a lot better when you get the shock brackets etc. tacked on.

Good Afternoon, We've had almost 6 inches of rain, and it's trying to now . working on sanding the PU box and one door, also getting the mounts ready to install on the crossmember, in between rain drops. idnative nice that they don't use all the corrosives where you are, huge issue here. Frank, thanks! safe travels up to Ohio. Gordon, I don't mind polishing instant gratification of a good job. Tomorrow it's off to a shop to do some repairs to a gooseneck trailer, replacing some supports that have gotten weak from afore mentioned corrosion. Update the UPS driver just delivered my Texas crossmember, (it's used but in great shape)

Tim,

Remember that 30 days it was in the shop? That was my wax window so still trying to get another window. Going to be the next weekend I don't work/ Just before we go to the Casino.

Terry, how long do you think it will take to finish this project? The PU looks good.

Lynne
