This was the last time I had a chance to do anything on my bullet due to giving birth in May and having one heck of a delivery and needing to take several months to recover...

So fall and winter of 16 I got the wheel coverings, more of the subfloor and frame completed, sealing as I go (had to wait for rain bc I didn't have access to a hose), much of the underside done and a new hitch.
2017 spring up until now, I have 5 new beautiful tires, I have new shocks but I am waiting until I get the axels and such bc I would rather replace all at once (needed to move this guy a few miles and couldn't do it on the old tires).
For the rest of July, the back end still needs to be completed as far as the last part of subfloor, one more angle iron needs to be welded in, placement of plumbing and the underside will be completed... I didn't realize how much has been done until I went over these pictures again 😂 will check in after I have my goal accomplished this month and will come back with more pictures. Everyone loves pictures...

Forgot the exterior moldings crane off... they're in rough shape. If I can't salvage them, I'll have to eventually replace them...

Thanks,

PS -- Your April 2016 thread for everyone's information:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f137...er-149850.html

In early May 2017 you commented in another thread:
Sorry for the slow response. I am now virtually finished with my '67 Caravel and ready for its maiden voyage on 8/5/17. I have not done my final accounting yet, but a interim accounting not too long ago leads me to believe I will have $20k+ invested in the trailer. Labor costs, not figured in at about 20 hours/week for 14 months. Yes, I have a full time job that I work a minimum of 10 hours/day and I did 95% of the work by myself. But, this type if think is my hobby and takes the stress away from my everyday life/job. Car restoration is my main focus...don't get me started on that....

I know I have posted these photos on many threads, but I cannot help it...proud papa right now...
