Okay the frame towards the front looks real good but either the belly pan has been replaced by the 3 stooges since it was built or they were doing a party at the plant on the day mine was built and they served lots of booze! Cuz the belly pan was a jig saw puzzle! The steel flanges they used in the channel to hold the ribs were badly rusted which transferred to the ends of the outriggers. Belly pan rivets are not drilled any more now I am using the chisel ! (9 different sizes and mixed with steel).

It was huge when I finally got the bellypan off. I felt like I got over a big hurdle. It sounds a lot like mine. It was a hodge podge of screws and rivets too.

Let us not forget the DIRT unused rivets and general debris that have collected over the last 47 or so years! 1 panel dropped and I looked like I had been without a bath for weeks! 9 wasp nest and about 10 well rounded spider webs so far and I stepped in some caulk which is harder to get off the dog crap!

I get it completely! It was all in my hair. I should have put all the wasp nests together and taken a photo. Thankfully,I didn't have the carcasses others have talked about. Yuk!

Cliff, I am very interested in where you got your aluminum, how you make your c channel, and the vents you do for the belly pan. What are you doing to the frame? Are you repainting?

Boys were born at 816 and 819 am two sacks 1 plesenta 23 and 26 grams Elliot (1st) is having a little difficulty oxy but doing okay both vaginally I ask at the hvac supply where to get aluminum bent and he sent me to a local fabricator that also will order and sell the aluminum. He (fabricator) said that since the frame is a lighter guage that I could bring the outriggers in and he could probably make that to. I have an alternate plan if he can't and as for the paint yes we will be reprinting Jeannie said she want a denim fabric and a gun metal blue color and for the bath some shade of red same for the fridge vent. I am making the mold for the vent but that is further down the list. I am still looking for a plumbing vent, VTS is out of stock and if I can not find them I will have to make them. Fabrication of fiberglass and minor plastic items I can do. Although I at one time taught body finder repair and gas welding I have not done it in more than 30 years and if I remember correctly my beads always looked like crap (not my favorite thing). The vents I got At lowes and if I remember the next time I go I will look at the manufacture so your dh can order them himself they are the aluminum wall vents (between studs) normally installed after blowing insulation. Half inch foam strips (airspace) then 2 inch foam board with aluminum sheet side up for belly pan. 4 vents 2 middle and 2 back for belly pan screen on the inside to stop visitors. I have 1 wheel well outrigger that has 2 inch holes and the back one on the same side was mangled by a blown tire.

I am so excited about those precious babies. Such a blessing when they can be born vaginally. My sister was able to have hers that way. Oxygen is pretty normal. Glad that is all. Twin grandsons look out grandpa!
