I like where your water hook up is Doug. There you go making me think some more.

Tim got home this weekend, asked about our visits. Would you be interested in having visitors for a couple of hours maybe next weekend?

Sounds great! Always good to bounce a few more ideas around.
Sunday afternoon might work the best.

I am sure any day your great work will get me motivated.
Did you consider putting the hinges up and the latches down? What are the drawbackd of that? The latch is pratical, lockable, and readly available, but did you see any others that would work?
I too really like the water supply/hose storage, and the quick couplier will be great.

Thanks Bruce,
Its the people I meet and the great work I see on here that keeps me motivated. That and work lately has not been easy, so the cruiser has been good therapy.

I didn't really consider the latches on the bottom, I wanted them easily accessible and to have the doors out of the way when open. I will put a little rain gutter on top to help seal them. So just a preference I guess.

Rock guard and door cap

Kind of a miserable snowy/rainy day here in Wisconsin 55, sunny and grass showing last week, snow, ice and bad winds today. I spent a little time in the shop today making a rock guard for the front window and a new rain cap for the door.

Very very very Cool!
Great idea, and super use of a wintery spring day.
How does it attach and remove?

The top slips into the hinge and the bottom will have two stainless studs attached to the windows with wing nuts. The P.O. had screwed the window shut so the holes for the bolts in the corners were already there.

Front belly pan and rub rail

Started working on the front belly pan today and it has been as much of a challenge as I thought it would be. I ended up cutting it into sections, just would not slide up into place like I wanted it to. I've seen lots of pictures of others struggling with it and now I know. Definitely would be easier before the top goes back on!

It ended up ok, not quite as smooth as I would like. After the new rub rail was on it looked better.

Also made rain caps for the storage doors.

Lots of little things

I have not posted for a while but really have been working on lots of time consuming things on the outside. Lights, belly pan, patching holes and installing new rub rails all around. I rebuilt all the marker lights and the license plate light and installed a couple of work lights front and back where some old holes were.
Now I can move back inside and finish some sealing on the seams and start installing the interior skins. Also received the new tanks.
