Hi, where is the new piece of metal / angle going? Is it going in the area where the axles mount? Great job so far.

If you look at the bottom picture it goes from between the wheels to the back crossmember in the picture. 8 ft worth.

Got the rest of the frame cleaned off today with the wire brush grinder. I found it easier to use the variable speed polish grinder than an angle grinder. The angle grinder just spins to fast and it gets pulled all over the place.

Once I had the surface rust off, I took the pressure washer to it again to get the frame clean.

I also pulled all the wire out and marked what went where.

Also got all the new plywood cut out and ready to go on.

If you look at the pictures you will see one side is black and the other blue.

The black side is rolled on bed liner. I used about a gallon of the stuff. I only put one coat on as it soaked in and gave a good covering on the plywood. This should stop any water from getting in. I also covered the sides of the plywood with it.

The top is just painted with a semi gloss exterior paint. I would have probaly chosen a boring grey but I let my 9 year old daughter pick the color nice ski blue. You will see it under the cabinets but it's a nice color so I don't mind. Could have been purple or pink

This top coat of paint will stop any spills from soaking into the plywood.

Tomorrow the Por15 comes, and I hope to be able to spray the frame.

Sprayed the frame with the Por15 today. It was very hot so I was in sandals, short, and a T-shirt. Way to hot to were a spray suit, would have had heat stroke
And Yes I got it on me,
And NO it doesn't come OFF.
Will if you take their thinner right away to it, it comes off. But needless to say my hands are a shade of black and so are me feet With spots in my pores on my arms and legs

Well, with my own stupididty over with things went well..

It sprays on very nice. I thinned the first 1/2 quart by 5% but didn't after that. it didn't need it really, It took 2 quarts to do the 28' frame twice.

It goes on like butter, I wouldn't even think of brushing it on, it would just take forever.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes to dry in the hot, very dry climate we have here in western Colorado.

Floor goes on this weekend, or friday if the frame is dry..

Wow

Wow you are sprinting through this project! I like the aggressive pace. Are you trying to target a certain completion date or something? And the quality of work is astounding. Keep it up, man.

OHHH, the black paint was a little worse than I thought.
When I took a shower and washed the dirt off it showed a little more.
Yeah I missed that spot on the back of my arm and behind my knee,
And NO nothing will budge it know

Good thing I'm not going anywhere for a week or so.
also here is a better picture of the frame.

I don't have a choice at this point. Taking the kids for swim lessons today, maybe an hour in the pool will help

wheel wells

So, my wheel wells were not as bad as I thought. They were mostly rusted out at the front and back with some tears. With some patching and banging a was able to get them usable. I had to fix the front and back of both.

I then sprayed them with a rubberized spray (Yep the stuff you see on tv) got it at wally world.

Going back to get another can to spray the whole inside of the fenders. This will waterproof them and help with sound. The stuff is not that bad really, you can stop laughing it's not..

The green paint is a rust killing paint i had. Didn't want to wait 2 days for Por15 to dry.

I've heard of people fogging water mist onto POR-15 AFTER the carrier solvents have evaporated to key the catalyst reaction.. . POR-15 says no water under or in the paint, and brag exposure to water only makes it harder. But you probably don't want to hear that nonsense right up until the kiddos start finger painting & making collages with sticks, lizards and leaves in it.
