Oh no! Now I'll probably be the slowest rebuild once again. Glad to hear you are back at it, we'll have to compare notes sometime. Welcome back!

We were finally going to rivet the wheel wells together today. Riveter doesn't rivet rivets that big. Off to get a new riveter.

Yours in rivetation,

Ingrid

John does this count towards my quota of checking in?😉

My "wink" smiley turned into "dd09". So, consider yourself dd09'ed. Sigh

408th post!

Ingrid, Wow! The posts in this thread are really mounting up~! How is the progress on the T-wind? Has your husband been working on the interior since last post about cabinetry? Hope you are all fine. We just picked up a spare tire holder from a '99 Isuzu Trooper that came with the cover. We will be looking into using it for mounting the spare on the front or rear of the shell under the window. Front would be my choice but I won't know until I can uncover the "Landshark" for the Spring. I'm making a frame to mount on the shell (as a stiffener) out of aluminum to mount the holder to. Hope to see some new progress pictures real soon. Best Wishes, Ed

Shopping for a Rivet Gun... That counts as both progress on re-assembly (sounds better than "building from scratch..) and an update... It appears Winter Rainy season decided to skip northern California this year, which means there will be a mega-drought this summer, and no chance to garden, go boating or wash clothes, etc. Should be a lot of free time to finish the trailer in time for Jackson in October!

Hope all is well.. We're trying to decide on trip in addition to the two NorCal Forums weekends this year.. Still struggling to get passing grade in Retirement 2.01, and in danger of flunking one more time...

Thx for Update Ingrid, but we were hoping you'd have convinced Hubby to work full 8 hour "swing shift" now that it stays light later and start building in the interior... I'da probably just sprayed a burst of Roundup under the trailer and declared victory, so at least there is exercise involved...

Real progress. Fabbed wheel wells, riveted, caulked and POR 15! I was going to just do the inside of them but the 2nd wheel well wasn't quite done yet so I just used up the remaining paint on the outside, you can't really close up a half-used can of that stuff.

No pictures! My caulking is an unholy mess!

How is everyone?

Ed & I may be among most loyal followers of this thread, but I was really surprised to see that this coming Sunday is the 8th Anniversary of the Tradewind Restoration thread.. Ingrid - you are a hero to many for sticking with it and plugging away despite a lot of "challenges" along the way.. I really hope you have some sort of rollling sealed shell you can bring up to Casini this April, even if it means air mattresses and walks to bath areas, and sandwiches in the cooler or meals in Guerneville.. Keep it going, and we hope for continuing progress!!

John -World's Worst Retiree...

Well you are the most loyal follower to Ingrid's trailer and the worst retiree!
I sure haven't provided assistance when I chimed in on her preceding thread here..... bad fellow streamer ;

You guys are the best!!

I caulked wheel well #2 and let it set overnight. I had to move it in and out of the garage three times to dry, spray metal-ready, rinse, dry out of the rain, and I paint it this week. I'll take pictures!

When these go on, a lot of the work is going to fall to Jeff, running electrical, plumbing, tanks, etc.

Movin onwards!!

I can't wait!

Ingrid, Seems like only yesterday but it's been 8 years since we both joined the forums! I for one want to see what amazing work Jeff does on the interior of your trailer. I will still be watching the great progress you two are making and hope all are well for the holidays. Ed
