Nice

That's great, feels good to hit a milestone of sorts when there are so many little things.
Keep up the good work!

Must've been talking about the Pats' 2 losses to the Giants. This last SB was an OUTSTANDING game with an OUTSTANDING result. Despite yet another circus catch against us (we were almost "Kearsed") - the outcome was finally right and all is well in footballville :-)

I take it the worker hanging from the gantry is the not so skilled one. I didn't see a tail anyway.

Working on the frame while it's upside down will make things much easier. I had to lay on my back doing all of that. Jackson Center rolls over the frame to mount a lot of stuff under the frame, then the belly pan, and then the axles. Then they roll it over wheels down.

I'm still polishing. 60+ hours into it and a long, long way to go. Gad! Boring!

'65 GT 20' my winter project

Monkey is the welder builder plumber. 26 and calm as a cucumber. The other one has some skill but a few issues from what I suspect to be some past drug use issues. Hard worker but can't think sequentiality. I can do that part at least.

Insulation almost done today. Flipping chassis was somewhat freaky but Monkey Matt rocked it.

I keep getting an error code about exceeding attachment photo size quota. Pictures are on

Hi thumbelina, You and your hired men are making progress. No offense intended toward your workers. I thought the fella hanging from the gantry was rather funny. I may have used a step ladder as my Tarzan days are over. I could use some hired workers to stand behind my polisher for like 50 hours. It would speed things up for me.

I had a photo error once myself. Air Forums limits the amount of space we can use for photos, and I maxed out some time ago. I learned that if I became a "supporting member" I could have more storage space. I guess nothing is free. So you might consider becoming a paid member. I like to post photos as they help explain what I did on this or that. I'm not an apple user. I have noticed some folks have more trouble with apple iPad photos than PC photos.

David

I wasn't at all offended! Pics are on facebook and I store them in google plus. No time for the membership thing. Have to get this baby back in the chassis!

One thing you can do is to "link" the images from your google site, rather than attaching them.
use the "insert image" button, and enter the url to the pic.

Just curious, and maybe to soon to ask, but what will your floor plan be like? Materials, lights and such? Appliances? Love seeing your progress.

If you are ever in Kansas City give us a shout and we will give a tour of our Baby!

'65 GT 20' my winter project

Thanks for the tip chuck!

Dave, the not so competent worker has a strike two today. Strike one was jail two weeks ago. $20 labor still isn't cheap in terms of impact to my time today.

Indy, no concrete plan but here is what I know.

The bath will be shower and compost toilet. Stainless and teak built on a 1 1/2 platform. Floor under has fiberglass fabric protecting the MDO. Insta heat tank.

No gaucho going back in. A technology station with drawers and a top that lifts up like on a sailboat. Next to is the beer tap kegerator. Trying to manage a 6 bottle wine storage too.
Where the heater took up too much space is the start of the large u shape seating and bed with smart storage configured under.

Kitchen cabinet will have heater in the wall by door. Maybe a three burner top but I really just need a microwave / convection and a coffee making altar to my Buddha of coffee.

I have a skylight that will stay.
Rear vent will be a fantastic fan.
The driver side -big window (of three) is going away. I have seven for goodness sake. No need for a complete fishbowl. The bath window still makes me nuts.

Prewire for solar that will mount on the rock guard and detach.

Lift hate going on the truck. Crew cab. Hauling for two bikes.

That's all I have!

I have to March 2 to work everyday. Then I go back to work.
March 31 my friend that owns the shop wants is back.

Aluminum tent is good enough by then.

Happy Monday all!

fridge

Question, do you know how high your curbside counter was?

Also,do you know what kind of fridge your going to do?

I have about 40" to bottom of small curbside galley window,and I was looking at doing a Domestic RM2510, but I don't,t think it will fit. Since I have a curbside fridge, I may have to get a shorter one to make it under the counter.

Thanks,

TIMK

Angst- angst angst -Belly pan angst. We have cut some of the sheets then I stopped work as I am not comfortable. . I have over analyzed and have found a post thread from way back-http://www.airforums.com/forums/f219/78-31-sovereign-14737-4.html
IS THIS A GOOD PLAN BELOW?
Belly Pan Support. The belly pan had been removed at least once before, leaving a line of scars and difficult to remove steel rivets…the sheeting is now held up by 1” x 1/8” aluminum flat bar along the edge frame and main cross members. Looks good and gives an excellent seal to the undercarriage.

I think it makes good sense to do this!
See pics I copied from original thread

Hm. A little more angst...

Consider using nut plates and stainless hardware to hold the strips on. Easy to work on it in the future.

Don't hit me, please, I'm an engineer.
