Hey I got rid of that vert 👏👏👏👏👏👏
Front and center in the dirty!
Brendan has been out of pocket for a few weeks but called and said let’s do some more work👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 So we are gonna knock out some bits on the todo list!
Headlight buckets welded in, I see the cargo door striker is already done, and I guess we don’t need middle seat mounts in a camper. And even if you wanted some welded on, you have belly pans, so you wouldn’t see it anyway.
flip it over and prep the bottom for some epoxy sealer, and we may as well paint it Velvet green..
flip back up right sand the hell outta the green metal and put some epoxy on the inside and lower outer parts..
maybe just dust some velvet green on that too?? Hum where do I draw that line?
then off the dolly and old stuff put back under it just to roll it in the trailer next week

We finished off the last bit of welding /grinding on the top side then flipped it over.
Couple patches on the heat tubes, finished welding/ grinding.
Sanded all the nooks and crannies.
Seam sealer being laid down now. Epoxy sealer next.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KParticipantJuly 8, 2022 at 4:59 pmPost count: 2933
