Thanks Robert, I'm not sure if a thin wall socket would fit or not. I don't have one and didn't want to have to try and find one, so I went with the spline lug nuts. If it fit it would be close as the spline socket has a little extra room.. The opening is 1 1/8 across.. so if your socket is just under it will fit..

Thanks for the info. Good job!

So I got the AS back from the welder today. He was suppose to weld up the door corner that was in bad shape. Instead he put a patch in.. He felt the trying to weld in a new corner might damage to wall or floor to much. He did weld a crack about 5" from the corner, and up high on the frame.


The door closes fine and seals great. You can see the hole he would have had to fill in the other picture. The PO had welded it up to high so the door hit closing sometimes. Now it works great. Just have to get use to that patch..

Ok spring is here and the snow melted about a month ago. So it's time to get this puppy finished. Seems like I have been working on it since we got it. We are headed out early this summer ( June 18 th ). For 3-4 weeks on the Oregon and Washington coast. So, I really need to get the floor in and the cabinet doors built. Will keep you all up to date as I get started. The twins are now three so the two older kids can manage them a little better so I can get some work done outside.

Jason, I'd been wondering what happened to you. Were you snowed in all winter in a cave on Grand Mesa?

Carry on….

Yeah. It seemed life got busy and the computer went to the way side. Skiing with the kids mostly. Even was off face book for 3 months. But time to warm up the fingers and get back to typing and working on the AS. Also starting a teardrop project I hope to cover in aluminum. For overnighters in the mountains.

Jason,

Welcome back. Three months away is probably a good thing.

Hey Purman,

I have a question regarding Por-15 application in post #34.
I'm getting ready to sanblast and then do some welding to replace a few outriggers and the back portion of my 72 Tradewind frame.

Did you not need to do any prep to the frame after grinding?
Just pressure wash then spray on Por-15?

thank you
Eric

Here's a hint: 'POR' stands for 'Paint Over Rust'

Although they do make a product for a good prep job.
