Don't have to Wine and Dine. That's the fun of a Non Organized gathering. Last year my wife and I toured Old Fort Erie and then went antiqueing in Niagara on the Lake. But it is fun to tour a couple of the wineries and see the grape fields and the big houses along the parkway.
OR just hang out.

We're getting closer, but the Grand Finale may be postponed until next year or at least the fall, due to the fact we need to use the trailer this coming wkend LOL.

It's pretty much road worthy now but we'll see how much I can get done between now and Thursday

Rick, your detailed photo diary will sure help people in the future. It's really coming along. I can't believe how much you've accomplished in such a short time!
I've been watching to see if you were going to do the rear dinette plan or the rare side gaucho/rear corner bath/front single dinette plan (the elusive Beachcomber plan I've been coveting for a while now).

Hopefully more pictures today and tomorrow, the ceiling is up now and the Aluminum Foam is cut for the Bench/Bed at the back.

Today and tomorrow is all the time we have left for now so we'll see how much we get done

Before we can party like it's 1978

I am in awe.
The quantity and quality of your work done in such a short time frame is impressive.
I hope you can make it to the Niagara meet.

It's in discussion at the moment, just some scheduling to figure out to see if we can make it.

It sounds like it's a very relaxing time.

Talking Hey Jim.

Nice to meet you on the wkend, thanks for the soft top.
How'd you enjoy all the old Ford and Mercury Trucks?

Not to mention there were quite a few fibreglass trailers there too.

Sorry I have no pictures, just no time too busy spending time with friends.

How'd you like my friends StarCraft fibreglass camper made for Ford in the early 70's and only available at Ford dealers in California and the Great lakes area?

I finally stopped drooling long enough to see the Boler that was for sale, a Beachcomber someone had and a Cadet besides the great trucks there.

I took about 25 pictures of some that interrested me most. That cap is enormous. The linc with the pick-up kit was awesome and I finally was able to take you away from holding court long enought to deliver the top. Thanks for the trailer tour I had a great time at the show.

Happy to hear you had some fun Jim.

Surprising how many fibreglass trailers there was there eh?

Unfortunately because of the rain only about half the normal amount of Trucks showed up but we all had fun anyway.

Ok it's been busy.

A few more pictures of the progress being made (which has slowed down to a crawl)

These are the pictures of how far we got, it was more than good enough to go to the Ford and Mercury truck show in Arthur Ontario.

The little Blue guy is the trailer Mascot, I also if I didn't mention it earlier left a 1974 Quarter I found in the trailer in the trailer.

A few more pictures.

I don't expect I'll be making much progress as winter approaches but if time permits I would like to do the brakes or at least get a good look at them.

We got the cabinets up temporarily so we could use it and of course the cushions are just spares we had custom ones will have to be made for next year.
