Yes, we definitely want pictures! When you click reply, don't use the quick reply box, use the blue "reply to post" button just above it. That opens a new page where you can click on the little "paper clip" above the typing box, which will open up a new tab. Then you can upload a picture to the site. Then go back to the typing window tab and reclick the paper clip. Your picture should show up there as a button to push. Then you can push the "preview post" to make sure it all shows up!

I just figured out all of this stuff myself too...

thought Id put a shine on the old girl so it would be nice to look at while I tackle the tough issues. Nuvite F9….came out ok…I will need to go over some areas again that have deep scratches. I plan on finishing the polish when she's done

rigged up a couple of 2x6 x 16's to lift the shell. Was going to lift from the 2 far vents but didn't have enough room to run the straps to the com -along since I needed to lift pretty high to get over the wheel wells. I ended up pulling from the center vent. Of course I drilled out all the rivets I could see and most of the blind rivets. That was not easy

Thumbs up

Shell coming off….you figure out pretty quick where the hidden rivet are located. The tough ones seemed to be around the wheel wells. Lifted easily…slow a little at at a time. Came off ok. The shell is definitely heavier in the front. The girl wanted to tip forward. I will secure 2 more straps on cleats for and aft to even the load when I have to lift her again

nasty rotted floor. It was tough to get a good template of the front and rear corners. I layer out some heavy paper and traced it best I could. Didn't work well. I will have to try some other ideas on getting an accurate cut for the new floor. Lots to do before that happens
