Hi JEFF...
so your not going with the Camo paint job after all?? ..
you can put the Black Diagonal strips on the back with the sign; "Stay Back 100 feet'" .. LOL..
You know I'm kidding right. ??
I like Yellow on Jeeps .. amazingly I worked at construction down in Puerto Rico for a few years and was responsible for all the "Yellow" equipment on site.. They only break down in the rain. and where the puddles form.

You are doing a good job typing if only with the Hunt and peck methods .. I actually use a modified version of that.. I still hunt and peck but use all the fingers.. then go back and catch all the mistakes.. thank goodness for spell check ..

In may I must attend Grand daughters Wedding.(grand Ledge area.. so far the planned route , in MI is thru Kazoo, to GR via 131then over to the wedding in Grand Ledge then over in the Thumb and up along that coast to the Big Mac. then back down to Cadillac and then to GR.
if we get near your place I'll stop by and inspect the welds. LOL will you be finished by spring?
By the way.. I have a set of good cushions for a Casita 17 you can have for the project. if your at all interested I can picture them for you and give dimensions. Got those and a DOOR I picked up in Charlevoix at a secret RV Junk yard. (he stopped advertising his place a few years back but was happy to sell me his door. had about 300 5th wheels and trailers mostly wrecked. I had a old motor home with the worn out hinges so snagged that door last time I was in the state. .. well time to hit the sack .. stay busy.. that way you can't see what's sneaking up on you..
Chow. Jerry,

Chow. Jerry,
Ha HA thought about camo. Stayed away from custom mix colors and ended up with the stock color auto color I got. We we're in Puerto Rica a couple years ago. Saw one guy driving threw town with two horses sideways in the back of pickup, short side rails and no tailgate. Flew over to vequoi ( forget spelling), for a bit and saw the lagoon with the glowing water. I forgot I'll be at a graduation also sometime about then in Dallas( very close to denton) Guess I better get a move on before someone trys to sneakup on me

Well i finally pulled it out of the shop on the 1st. Been raining and i'm back to work, so its on the back burner for now and covered inside and out in construction dust. Was just going to touch up the paint and clean it up some. Turned into more of a project than i planned. Put lots of time into it in the four months.
Outside has new tires/rims and tires, new axle with brakes, new subfloor, battery/tool boxes on the front, new frame, new jack, body work and new paint, new fantastic fan, windows removed and rebuilt and resealed, new plexaglass front and rear, new decals.
Inside was rubbed out and inside the cubbies and closet painted, new doors and seat bench wood all new, all new wires, stove hood and cabinet sandblasted and painted, stove bebuilt, vinyl laminate flooring, moved the table back some for better access. (yellow in picture is just in the picture).
Still have to get some new foam and we are going with the material in the middle of the one picture. Then curtains and headlinner. Thinking of 3inches of medium or high density foam and 1inch of memory foam for 4inches total.
With the hours into it..Much more than anticipated..I could have bought a new one..yikes.
I'm retired but to stay busy and extra money i work for a farmer in the summer. Included a picture of the T.V. i'm driving at the moment. Gets around good, but always alot of traffic behind me.
