Carl,
It is going to look great! I am glad you are enjoying the little Argosy. I was just looking at some of our traveling pictures the other day and it looked nice sitting there in the tall pines in a cg in New Mexico and one in Colorado as well.
Floyd

Done

Well, that was easy...NOT. Strip, Remove Caulking, Reseal seams and windows with TremPro 635 and parbond, , Sand, Sand, Sand, Tack, Solvent Wash, Prime, PAINT.... 8 Days of prep and 2 Days of Painting. Thanks to by big brother for all his help and letting me use his yard...otherwise I would still be working on it. Here are a few shots of the work and the final product. Still need to finish a few details such as the tanks and belly wrap.

-Carl

My brother after two days of sanding the rivets...DON'T JUMP!



To keep the work moving, I always make sure I have the right tools on me



DONE...

Looks good Carl, I want it back!
By the way, I sent the pics to the fellow I bought it from who was using it for a storage shed in 2005. Want he be shocked?

Nice job, Carl! One day...one day...

Hi Floyd. Mona and I were just talking about Kathy's kabin the other day. Maybe we can make another trip up this fall.

All the best.

Scott

Wow!

I'm normally more of a shiny aluminum fan than a painted aluminum fan, but that is just beautiful. Great job!

What a wonderful looking Argosy. You should be proud to have helped him get back on the road.
