Repaired wheel wells this week and installed; the floor is finished all the way around, yaaay! NOT... I didn't figure correctly and made a mistake calculating the placement of the passenger side wheel well. The door didn't fit!!! So, wheel wells in, wheel well out, wheel well back in.
Had to cut the shell away from the floor, from the door to the center back. Sure am glad its fiberglass...! Have things put back together now, glassed in enough to hold things in place will try to get that side completely secured tomorrow.
The tarp came down last weekend and water ran down the side of the little guy. We had the expected water drips at the windows
but discovered some new drips too. It seems that the belly band seam has been leaking. So, I started grinding out a bad place on the driver side, thinking to myself (I need to redo this whole belly band seam) oops, almost had a panic attack. I got a little to zealous with the grinder and went through the shell a little bit
, just above the seam..... Scarey..!! So I clamped the 4 foot section (way too much for me to take out at one time) and got fresh fiberglass on that. Whew, scared myself, allot!!!!!!!!!!
Hubby just finished grinding out the rest of the belly band bad spots. He is much better at grinding than I am (that's my story and I'm sticking to it)! I have decided that the rest of the belly band is just fine.
He also has finished stripping and sanding all of the furniture.
I am ashamed to say that we took back one of the pieces of pleiglass that we bought and I paid a window guy to cut and install the front and back windows
. I had the gasket so that saved a little. They are beautiful.. would have waited if we knew that we were going to be grinding in there again. Tried covering them but makes it too dark for me to work. Will wait till we are all finished then figure out how to clean them without scratching.
Have reassembled the side windows but will wait till later to put them in, or we won't get much ventilation while still doing fiberglass.
Camping this month isn't looking too promising but it could still happen. We shall see!
