Lots of progress. As a side comment I suggest you get done what you can and what is not done is just . . . not done. We know what it will look like when completed. Don't kill yourself to finish!!!!

Good Afternoon, Had to make a supply run this AM sanding paper, flap wheels, grinding discs all metal working stuff, framing out the compartments with 1 inch square tubing then 3/4 inch plywood for the floor and almost 3/4 for the walls, I really dislike the almost sizes. I should be done with them about the time the rain supposed to come back...........Wednesday of next week.

Good Evening, Popeye, where it's the worst is remodeling older houses that used full size lumber, try matching up with the "new" stuff. Gordon, I do this to myself all the time, I get as much as I can, the compartments are all framed, the storage one is even got one coat of paint, Propane is done as far as it'll get for this trip, working on the electrical compartment now all the wood is cut just needs to be installed, and the battery compartment just needs the wood cut and installed. Andy, (son/helper) is helping tomorrow so I'm putting him to work on sanding the sides of the compartments, if all goes well we will epoxy prime tomorrow afternoon. shooting to hopefully also get the seat mounts built too, but that might be a little optimistic. Here's a pic of one compartment and the framing for a couple of others.

Looking better each and every pic, one can sure tell that you enjoy building things. And you do such good work, it is a pleasure watching a true craftsman at work.

Good Morning, Thanks Frank, I've said this before I've been doing this my whole life, (building what I needed) most times because I didn't have the funds to just go and buy, the first pickup I owned was a 1950 Ford bought it from behind a Texaco station with no motor, went to the local junkyard and bought a BIG motor, (it was a flathead, and it was the, I think 80 HP version) and installed it under a tree in the yard, later drove that ole truck to South Carolina while in the Marines. What takes a lot of time is that building with old parts you have to stop, refurbish the part as best you can, build and install it, and move on. Working on putting the cabinets together while waiting for the helper to show.

Kudos Terry. What you described is a skill that seems to be on the way out now days. I really like seeing things like this.

I do not have the skill or patience to undertake such large projects. However I am glad that you, Harvey and Lloyd let me stick around and appreciate your work.

Addendum - I do have a couple skills I am willing to share! Napping and eating ice cream!!! Now if I could just parlay that into a job I could make money. Perhaps Tim and I should get together and we could offer naps, fishing and ice cream tours.

Good Afternoon, Well we have the drivers seat figured out, now cleaning and painting the base for final install. And we just epoxy primed the right side waiting now to spray the top coat.

Hi Frank, LOL, the seats are out of the van that the body came off of, and the air ride bottom came out of my sons dump truck when they upgraded the drivers seat, I adapted the seat to the bottom, Eleanor still has a hard ride for now, LOL, (or I should say whomever sets on the passenger side, she has her CDL too!) I am going to miss an arm rest too! Since my last post I got the right side painted, hope to get the left side done tomorrow.

Looking great, Terry!
How hard was it to get all the years of spilt coffee and soda off that air ride seat base? Hahahaha! See you soon!
I did some roof work today, resealed around the satilite base, and the crank up antenna, everything else looked good, tomorrow i am going to work on the living room A/C, to try to stop the dripping inside, we will see what it takes, i am hoping some foam tape will do the trick, as the old foam is pretty much gone! Rail!
