Last pieces of plywood to cut

Posted 01-16-2011 at 08:54 AM by DanielB (Dapper Dan's Haircream Adventure)

Got a break from the cold this MLK holiday weekend. Up in the 60s here. Hoping to have the chassis ready for the shell to go on by the end of monday.

The rear end of my AS had serious problems when I got it. All of the lookouts on the curb side aft of the axles were gone. The PO had decided to replace the plywood floor with a terrible cut had made the floor an inch or so to wide which over time had bowed the walls out.

Big problem was how to get a good cut on the aft floor...
