Congrats!!




But to be fair - you have to show a pic of what "special interest" was to those who weren't there... You got a pic of the Jeep still in position off that ramp?

I f you don't mind asking the JC craftsman, Why are they overlaying the lower damaged skin segments, instead of removing the damaged ones and replacing with new? I am mystified by this.

Saves labor time.

Over laying of metal and charging for replacement, is insurance fraud, and/or customer fraud, as the case may be.

Caravanner Insurance penalized dealers for doing that over 38 years ago.

But, to each his own.

Saving time might also explain the blind rivets?

If they are using blind rivets on any of those new panels you might also ask him why they aren't using solid shank buck rivets instead?

Tom,

Went to Hussy's tonight... Bet you didn't know that they have Japanese regulars from the Honda plant, and such, have a special translated Japanese menu...

Thought I'd give you a shot of the English and the Japanese...

By the way - 2 large tables were take by a group of WBCCI folks on the way to some rally somewhere. Ran into them again at JC mothership camped out behind the service garage.... I guess they used JC as a meeting point to start the rally....Call be bad, but I didn't intorduce myself...

Here's the shot of the 16' wheels and axle / tire pressure placard.

Note that they are using 225 75/R16 E rated LT tires on 3800 lb axels....

Monacoque,

The tech says there isn't enough room to do a good Buck rivet there. He states (and I did see prior to the new panel overlay) that their was one buck rivet for every 4 inches. He's gone and put a Olympic rivet ever inch and a half or so, so there are more rivets holding it now that previous.

Now some may debate the strength between the two rivets, but the quantity of Olympics down there makes me comfortable. The rest will be Bucked anyways.

Here's a pic of the backside area.

CCD Lockers (Upper cabinets)

If you ever want to remove your upper cabinets, you gonna have a heck of a time...See how mine came out in ONE PIECE with SKIN?

The lockers are screwed into the interior skin as one piece... The Screws are from BEHIND the skin, meaning you would have to tear up the cabinet to gt to the screw ends and then cut off each of the screws tips coming thru the wall, and there are alot of them!!!

Where exactly is the tech saying there is not enough room to buck a rivet? Do you mean on the panel splices?

Hurray! JC is bucking at least some of the rivets! I'm still curious about where there is not enough room for bucking as mentioned above?
