What is a "screen fuzzy"? Google only comes up with fuzzy TV screens.

On our 2014 Classic, there is a rectangular cut into the hatches for the new lock design. Thus a round hole replacement is NOT an option. However, I took these lock devices to a local lock smith and he was able to disassemble the lock mechanism slides and make a custom keyed device for all of them.

English Wheel

English Wheel- to finish my Belly pan and replacing sheets on the body. I am not a professional so I paid 265 with tax and major discounts for it at the dreaded HF. Hired off of craigs list a gentleman that is retired Navy. Gave him a rivet and sheet test. He passed. I am hopeful.

Belly Pan has been difficult - many pics of my Glamper Girl project - https://plus.google.com/photos/11042...08745855157537

Hey I bought the same English wheel; actually twice; the first one was utter garbage. The second one looks great though.

You are better off to use a Planishing Hammer than an English wheel for the parts you are working on. English wheel like the one you have pictured will not form the parts you you have described. The forming contact patch of that type of English wheel will simply smooth out large hood size parts and will not allow for detail aluminum shaping that is needed. A planishing hammer has much greater force in a smaller controllable area and larger selection of dies to to get the results you need. I have a english wheel and may use it 5% of the time over the Planishing hammer. I hope this info is useful rather than come across as "I told you so" I truly am trying to save you time, headache, and confusion.

I don't agree Vinstream. I have been posting on this subject matter and researched. I am not experienced and need something slower than the force of the hammer. Would be more helpful for you to advise what I can do not what I should have done.

Let's ask Bender what he thinks.

Meanwhile, our trailer got a thorough washing, preparing for the road again. Can't wait until we can de-winterize!

Went to check for leaks today. We've had a couple winter precipitation events and I wanted to check on "The Mini Bar".
I dropped off the pillows I purchased recently. I think the fit into the mini bar theme better than the other accent pillows.
I especially love the lime green and blue fuzzy pillows. That's our colors.
It was fun to see her again. And I look forward to turning the tires and hitting the road!!! Come on spring!!!!

A 2013 Ram 2500 Laramie 4x4 Diesel!

We've been thinking about this since October when we had a problem climbing up to the Blue Ridge Parkway on US421 - a 6-mile 8% grade that our truck probably should have pulled but it didn't. We've been watching the Classifieds TV for Sale thread, Autotrader, Cars.com, and general searches.

Two Ram 2500s showed up at our local dealer. We went "just to look". Well, looking turned into buying and Buzz II came home with us.
