    And so, the journey begins....

    Picked up Lucy this weekend. Just now going through and finding a place to start. She has not interior skins and the floor is almost completely removed. Just need to get a few more pieces out and then the fun begins.

    Yes, the ramps have a large lip to keep the wheels on the ramp. The front jack was also dug in to a screwed down block. Before the back belly pan sheet, I also had a 6x6 saw horse wedged under the rear to keep it from lift under weight in the back.

    On the SS comment - I didn’t realize galvanization on SS to aluminum was an issue. Will look into for future spots where using SS screws/bolts in the shell. Seems better to use than steel rusting out. Thanks for the info.

    1950 Liner "Weeble" - Frame painted, wheel wells welded and floor cut

    I have been meaning to post updates but got a replacement PC and the photo editing software/FTP haven't been set up. We are going shell off and back on the new frame next weekend if the weather holds. I just finished framing up the shell and prepping this weekend.
