Too funny because I am looking outside at the great piles of snow and the smoke rising from the chimney and dreaming about it turning hot. Thanks for the heads up, I did remove the shrink wrap as soon as we got it inside, the paint has to cure a bit longer and I was more concerned with the solvents potentially dissolving the film into the paint.

I dont think he needs to worry about it getting to hot any time soon.

When I was in Alberta (where Ian lives) 2 weeks ago it was -40C which is the same as -40F

For those technical folks, the paint we used is call Endura EX-2C, it is an industrial two component polyurethane often used in the aircraft and marine industry. It is extremely tough yet remain flexible which is perfect on fiberglass.

How so cool. Thanks for the videos. What a huge undertaking for such a little trailer. It will be good for 50 more years after you've completed it. The music in the background is fun to listen to also.

Love the cabinetry you've built.

I'm a great one for starting projects, but not so good at finishing them. I'm always amazed at what all you dedicated people can accomplish. Wish I had the energy and the focus.

Ian, this is way awesome! I'm sure this will inspire more folks to get to work on their rigs. It sure is calling me to continue on ours after several months of inactivity. Thanks man!

Thank you, trust me I have to really push myself sometime to finish things also, but the Boler itself motivates me.

Finding the music was a lot of fun ... but also took a lot of time.

hey, your welcome . Creating these videos was also a way to motivate myself, I have so much work to do on the Boler before the summer season and with the weather I am not sure when we will be able to start ...
