Hanging out with me will fill your garage up, that's for sure!

:-D

Thanks for the kind, yet undeserved words, G.

I got a few of those at an auction locally. Industrial carts from the 40's. They're called Lineberry Carts, and show up on eBay from time to time. Cool things!

sounds like a plan,did body off on my wee wind just to lazy to post pics. but the pipe frame was a mess so was only option. hardest part was template of floor so body would fit back on. i used 15lb roofing felt laid overlapping on original floor (the quality of the original plywood,amazing) at the overlap i used a hole punch 3/8" like for leather and put4 holes in each overlap then # with white crayon so i could reassemble on new floor,it worked.
the most fun was sanding and scraping 60 year old paint from interior,the new paint made it all worth while.
i took out all windows before i started as well,lightens the load. i then ran a padded 4 by 6 14' long through the windows and used my a/c lift in the rear window, cranked that end up and then just picked up the 4 by 6 and set on ladders on either side. (did it by myself no problem) make sure you build a dolly to set body down on while you get new trailer ready. 2 by 10" by 16' wit 8' at endsthen i spaced 2' hunks of2 by 6 under the edges.at 2' intervals. wheels came from lowes for about 20 bucks. was nice to be able to move body around the shop and in and out as job progressed. e me an address and i will burn and mail you a disc of the process.

Well, that all depends on whether or not I get the plumbing finished in the "Pickle". 4 peeps in a camper need a working toilet! :-D

The polish work is absolutely gorgeous. Geven is one heck of a good buddy!

well, it's almost december, and it occurred to me that I haven't posted on here in a LONG while, so here's an update. I finally finished the overhead locker, in sporadic free hours here and there as i snuck away to my wood shop to get away from the responsibilities of day to day life....

Sorry, no step by step pics of this one. It was done in 30 minute blocks over the month of November! One cool feature I did was integrating the lighting with a false bottom to conceal the wires, and adding full sliding doors (rather than hinged) with inlaid perfed aluminum panels to match the rest of the theme. I still need to add the 2 knobs, and trim the whole thing in... maybe by the new year!

Pics of the installed goodies...

First impression s are everything...

... and this one sucked! So, I had to try out the new shear and brake and see what I could do to spruce it up...
