Hey I found that I can make it rain! All I have to do is look at the frame and think about doing anything to it and the clouds come and then rain! I have started puting undercoat on the frame in prep for the floor which is cut and ready!

I did my business outside for the first two years. The killer was shoving a 54" snow fall to finish a belly pan replacement.

Yes I touched the shell and the frame and it is because of me that the rain has come and they are calling for strong thunder storms and possibly tornados. I do not care I am prepping the shell for the frame and will (even in the rain) have the 2 back together by the end of April with pictures.

The wind was yesterday calm now and the rain is supposed to end on Sunday. I don't care I will work under a tarp if I have too!

I'm just worried that the sucker will fly if I loosen the bolts between the shell and the frame. Gotta do that to get the floor on to the frame. Looks like a job for the summer.

The shell on the caravel is not that heavy but with the framing I put in it weighted it down and aerodynamic on the road not flight wise.

What purpose does this have

Over the curb side access door I have what appears to be a retainer but there is nothing on the door itself that would screw into it so does it have a purpose?

It is attached with pop rivets so I am thinking added by po. If no purpose then it goes away.

When the battery installation is correctly made, that item in your photo, is the battery vent outlet.
