Thats quite a repair. 14'? Really do like the guys at Toscano. Don't go to Manteca, they really don't know how to treat a customer.

As for cheese, we will be bringing a chunk of Winey Goat for sharing.

Can't wait the days are clicking away.

We are off to Lake Tulloch tommorow for a long weekend. The season has finally started!

Yes, I did try Manteca first. Ugh, they didn't seem to want my business. Toscano finished our Trade Wind this afternoon. Nice job! Really nice folks too. We will head out Friday morning for Lodi and hit up DG for a glass of wine .

Hmmm? Dont suppose anyone could show me how to replace a couple exterior rivets while at Casini? I have one at the door frame and two surrounding the slide mldg. Since this is my first rally I may have broken the golden rule of no repairs during an event... but then it wouldnt be my first time to break a few rules...
Thanks,
Vinnie

OOOOOOH, a workshop demo maybe! To buck the rivets you will have to get behind the panel and perhaps near a door fame a small interior inner skin can be pulled back to do that. The 14'x4' of skin that I had done last week was accomplished with Olympic rivets and a rivet shaver. Great job too. You can also check with Cam, (Hit'n the road). I think he will be at Casini. He had the curb side skin replaced on his coach last year at Toscano too. Is your coach out of warrantee?
Neil.

Hi Vlamica,

I replaced my entire under belly with olympic rivets. I will be more that happy to show you how. It's quite easy. Maybe WPPII can bring his shaver and we can do a demo. How many olympic rivets do you need? I'm sure I have some lying around if you do not require a lot.

Hello Robert,

Thanks for the offer. Would be happy to pay you for some rivets. I have a need for 3 rivets. Two surrounding the trim on the slideout and one at the lower door frame. Would be fun to see how its done. I will get some pictures.

Thanks Vinnie

Set up a "demo" time.
I want to see how it's done also.

No need for cash payment. Beer, Wine or just hanging is good enough payment for me. Look forward to meeting you.

Well, I think it would be good if we planned this event before DG's wine tasting since we're drilling holes and all..

Oh, did I mention that during our 'stay' at Toscano RV for panel replacement another Casini Rally participant was also in for AS service? Do you recognize the rig 2 spaces to our left?
