I bought a CT-13 a month ago. The PO started a big transformation to make it unique. There is lot more to do and as I need to share my experience here is what I have done so far (My friends dont get to excited about the project). At lest my wife seem to be proud of is men
First I got a deal over a propane
frdige, a converter and a furnace
. Every unit is in mint condition and I just paied 250$ for all of it including a flolding table and some more propane
connection. Happy me
I started the project by installing the converter and by changing every electrical
wire in the unit. I upgraded with a 30 amp inlet so no more fitting to get the wire back in in (I installed it further than the water entry) or no need to clean any mud because the cable will go in a rear outside box (project to come).
It was worth to extra hours to do every wire and now I feel more secure.
The next project was to install a Fanstatic unit. Again, lucky I was because I found a great condition used one for 90$ including a brand new Max-air. I started by adding a reverse switch because there was none on the unit. The installation went fine and for us It is a must have.
Now I have ordered seal, pile divider etc. to do every windows
. That is a lot of work but they all look like, almost, new. Just waiting to get second layer of paint
before re-installing them. The PO add done a good paint
job but was a bit rought so I decided to water sand the egg and do one last cover since the PO left me with a brand new liter of paint
The last couple of days I have been working on lifting the egg from the frame, grinding and sanding it. I already give a first pre-coat of paint. Tomorow I will get it to a friend welding shop to repair some parts and than the final painting
and the egg will be sitting on a, close to new, frame.
As, for now, I have so much fun working on it. Nobody understand what is fun about it but I am just waiting to get the final results.
If anybody wants to follow the work in progress you can go to: www.photobucket.com/UhauCt13-TheProject
I will add pics as I get thing done.
Next step: Re-installing the frame under the egg, finish the paint job, install the newly recondition windows
. (I will have extra seal, if anyone need some window work let me know will sale the extra for a great price).
After, I will attack to propane
issue. Installing the fridge
, the new heater etc.
If any of you have any suggestion, comments, idea, question let me know.
