    One more step on the beam done. Had to hog out the plates for the larger ends of the late beam tubes. A846ABAD-A3F4-4E6D-8E22-6D8A5DD02FAE9303937C-C677-4EA6-AECE-D1D454DA962B

    Working on pop out windows now. Removing the old rock hard crusty outer seals. Total pain in the butt. 3 down, 3 to go.F0BB6A63-8039-47B2-9266-19C40CD532E1CE16DA71-F254-4806-8743-A6F41EC2C848

    Window tear down done!!!

    Finished removing old seals then started on busted hinge mount screws. Had to drill and tap 9 of these little suckers…☹️D8C4FB85-5421-4413-9958-074CC8B83237

    Drill straight through the middle, then the tap pushes the old bits out when it goes just right.
    Nailed it!!!!E9CECBCA-4E2B-4D27-81F2-5588DCBB7CB0

    90E30B7C-8893-4CC6-9938-D8EA88E945B0

    Front drivers side pop out had been torn off at some point which tweaked the hinge mount area on the frame. F710BE5B-D299-47CA-B085-9D954B7175BF

    Little love here and there. EF544013-AE78-4C85-93A7-7CEAED9F32FD

    Much betta! 3AD1C0E3-8322-4FF8-B7C7-39ECDFF43C6B

    Moved onto front door window tear down next.1E11998D-E122-468F-81EE-6C02B01C21E4

    Vent wing pivot bits needed some extra persuasion before they would let loose.6B531277-CF4F-4831-83B8-7E7BDB6583D3E1A7A9C9-CDB0-4FAE-804B-AD167DA1DE686095A6B4-BCB6-4ED0-B5B5-5B6D43CE6618

    Pat and I did a CRL scrub on most all of the bus today. Ready for polish and wax. White scotchbrite is like 1500 grit sandpaper. Removed all the moss and overspray with it. Been waiting weeks to clean it like this. 👍
