Just read through your thread Gary. Really enjoyed your simple straight forward methods of repair and your "inventiveness" for the spare tire.
Looking forward to seeing it in paint.
Fred

Thanks, Fred,
I've been trying to "keep it real"... plus, I'm not really a professional anyway, so no point in making my efforts sound like rocket science.
Nowadays I am getting closer to paint, and that is exciting. I think I have a paint mix that'll come close to the original gel-coat color the U-Haul's were "born with"... be interesting to see how well that works.

It'll be a little bass-ackwards, but I think I'll put off the painting till closer to spring, and work on window seals & channel re-do's before the painting of the whole exterior skin. [I will probably paint the rear 1/3 of the interior once the repairs are done---I guess that'll tell me how well the paint matches. And whether I can transition smoothly from new paint to old gel-coat.]

Meanwhile, back to the shop... gotta make up for taking the afternoon off for reviewing retirement cottage plans, and getting new glasses!
Gary

I would appreciate a moderator here explaining what we need to do to make this work. I flipping teach technology and am getting frustrated here.

Yes, Donna, thanks.

I fail to understand why it is not possible to upload 2 images. I find it frustrating. Whatever limits are being put on the upload of Gary's images is causing the loss of a lot of really good information

I don't know Cindy. I'm still using the default skin and I can upload multiple images:

I thought there was an issue with trying to upload multiple images from an iPhone or iPad. As in, you can't.
I mail pix from iPhone to my MacBook, edit them there and then post up to four at a time.

Donna,

I use that too, and one of Gary's images will upload, but the second one will not.

Glenn, I was editing Gary's image too on my Mac too. Next time, I am going to take them into Graphic Converter first, see if I can make them into a different format, different size, and if need be, into one image.

Well.........
All this discussion got me to wondering if I could bring a file into Corel PhotoPaint and save it into a different format. Did that just now--changing from jpg to Windows Bitmap. And it seemed to work--at least now it didn't "fail to upload".

This was a goofy shot I took after filling in the seams/corners... went back in the camper to turn off the light I had inside, and when I did that, the heat lamp from outside lit up the fiberglass in a striking way.....
Gary

Hmmm... when I did a "preview" just now, I see an "attachment", but no image per se........... guess I'll just "submit", and see what I got.

So... that file I didn't have any luck seeing. Not opening in a new window or anything I tried. I downloaded it to a "pictures" folder, and could view it there, on my computer. [I guess we'd say that didn't work.]

I can see it, Gary. And I hope, in your frustration with technology, you won't quit posting on this thread. I'm enjoying it a lot, and I'm sure it will help someone down the road.

I wish I could help more with the technology aspect... I'm not experiencing any issues, either via the website or the app.

It downloaded to my computer, Gary. It is a really neat image, kinda looks like volcano lava.

I will give it a shot to upload.

Edit: I have tried uploading in the following formats: .png, .jpg, .gif, resizing, doing a screenshot and uploading that, changing it to pdf, and putting it into Word. Moving on to a different activity.

Gary, folks can download the image.

Brief update.
I revisited the "fillets" I made on the inside rear shell recently. I thought, since they were basically just "gluing" the flexible inside shell in place, I should add some matte & resin over them. So I used a 3" coarse grinding disc to scuff the material either side of the fillet, and the fillet material itself... then bridged across the whole seam with 3 layers of matte + resin.
Still no luck with uploading a jpg of that... but it didn't really look much different from the previous pictures. No great loss.

Next go-round, I'll start laminating matte & resin across the other interior seams...........
Gary

Thanks, Donnna!

There's actually one after that, that I posted on the U-Haul Facebook site yesterday....... but the one you just posted is the more "fun" image of the 2 most recent.
It occurs to me that I haven't tried using my wife's laptop to post to FGRV. I'll do that with the next one, just to [hopefully] be sure that it's not some problem unique to my own computer. [Desktop--2-3 yrs old--Windows7]
