Here's the before & after of the powder coat. I hope I can get them on next spring! I took before pictures so I could figure out how to get it back together again!

Look like brand new Becky.

Now what are you going to do with the money you saved?

Let's see......lots and lots of aluminum for the belly pan and banana wrap. I have a pneumatic rivet gun and an electric stapler on my Christmas list, so I won't have to buy them. (most moms don't even know what a pneumatic rivet gun is...I think I'm on the crazy end of the mom list!) I think aluminum would be hard to wrap, though!

Well, I'm going stir crazy with the winter. I hauled in the banana wrap pieces that I took off to get started on cutting new pieces. I tarped the basement & hope I can get all the metal nibs up that flew all over the place! I bought the aluminum from a local supplier. They had it on a coil. It is primed & ready for painting (which I'll do once it's on). My air compressor didn't keep up with the nibbler too well, but it was better than cutting by hand. I have all the pieces cut now & will go back & dig the belly pan out from the snow later! That should be a piece of cake to measure & cut.

I got the rivet gun for Christmas & bought a pneumatic stapler from HF around the corner. Now I just have to get the outriggers welded so when it warms up a bit I can paint the rear section with POR-15. I have all the Prodex in my shop so I'm ready to go!

Great pictures Becky,

Looks like you have a captive audience... (on the wall that is...)

I decided that we should have one of those nice tire carriers like Mr. Sovereign documented here. My husband made one for me (he stole my project, but he did a fabulous job--much better than I could!). So, I put the Prodex insulation up along with the belly pan in the A frame section. Now I'm moving on to insulating the middle section of the front. The question is---I have enough insulation to do 3 layers of Prodex. I've already cut enough for 2 layers. Would 3 be overkill, not make any difference, or make such a small difference that it's not worth the extra effort?

Thanks in advance!

Since no one gave me any advise, I just went with two layers of Prodex insulation. I have the front section insulated & am waiting for my son to weld on the new outriggers as well as waiting for the weather to get above 50 degrees so I can POR-15 the rear frame. I have to go back to work pretty soon & need to get this baby done!

Well, the weather finally broke & it's raining now. I've been rolling around in mud, but with a tarp on top, so it feels kinda weird. I'm not sure if this thing will ever be finished! Today I finished insulating the center section. My staples weren't long enough to go through everything, so I used those kind of nails with the plastic rings on them (they use them for plastic roofs). I finished Por-15 ing everything last week. WHAT A JOB!!! I discovered I have more leaks when the snow melted. Now I have to find them before I begin installing the banana wrap. But, I'm way ahead of myself. First I have to put the belly pan back on. My son welded on new outriggers for me!!!! Yeah! I have my plumbing torn apart too. Figured I'd cut a hole in there while I had everything up in the air. Had a slow leak in the black tank, so that's another project.
