Just a little odds and end welding left to do. Here is a shot of the steps I repaired and the black tank bottom cover. Going to make a Fastenal run this morning to get the rest of the screws and washers for the channel install. I ordered Por15 Hard Nose 2 part paint should be here tomorrow. Hope to have the rest of the welding and painting done this weekend!!

Wow, big improvement on the step! When you get the Por 15 and the hard nose on there that frame will last for at least 50 more years! Nice work

Thanks Top, I hope to get this phase behind me soon. I welded the bottom cover plate for the grey tank today. All I have left to weld is the step plate cover.
The big jobs are pretty easy the little stuff drives me crazy!!

Jav,
You are a brave man to be welding in shorts! The bumper storage compartment looks very nice. The expanded metal in the bottom is the way to go.

Haha! I know! Weld in shorts and cover up for paint? WTF!? The expanded metal idea I got from Kenny P's trunk set up. Since it is will just be for sewer hose it is a great solution. Hope to get some better shots of the trunk, tank set up and stairs soon.

Got two coats of por15 on all the little shizzle. Also got the trunk area step and tank cover plates coated and ready for Hardnose. I am also going to Hardnose the tongue. Hmmm.... did that sound dirty?

Its the little things....

Well I have been busy with all the stuff that makes you crazy and keeps me up at night. Lets see I got all the rest of the bumper/trunk, step, step area, tank cover and tongue painted with Hardnose. Cut and welded step area, outriggers (step area) and boxed areas of the frame with smaller C channel I had custom fabricated. And the balance jacks....those $%@&&** balance jacks! Did I say how much I hate laying on my back and drilling metal? Done!! Enough said.
ps thats my cat Cookie Puss on the prowl

After about a month off the trailer, I'm back to it. Kinda a slow start back because of work and life stuff. Got the spare tire carrier in (that was a bitch). Got the rest of the C channel fabricated, pre cut insulation and aluminum plate for the step area and spare tire area, and dry fit the new sub floor. Hopefully I will be able to insulate the sub floor and drill and screw down the c channel and sub floor.
