Desert',

Sometimes JC only uses the elephant ears unless you complain according to what I have heard. Interior braces should be installed plus an exterior fix.

rear end damage due dolly wheels

I finally got around to cutting off the dolly wheels mounts.Talk about overkill on the mounts.Whoever welded these stupid things on really overdid it with the 1/2 and 3/8 inch plate they welded to the frame which is only 1/8 to 3/16 thick.It only took me a good 3 hours of work to finally get them cut off the frame with a hand held grinder with a 6 in cutting wheel installed.103 here in Texas today what a great day to lay in the sun and grind.[ATTACH][ATTACH]

Afterwards.
Not perfect but much better.All it needs now is the blue plastic insert.
Time for a silver bullet.

Looks real good.

Now a story about the Silver Bullet. About 30 years ago I was working for a mining company and we were exploring a flooded mine tunnel we owned. Dumb as we were, we managed to release a bunch of nasty, orange, muddy water into Clear Creek. The Creek ran orange (iron oxide, good for the hemoglobin) for about a day, but no one ever asked about it. The statute of limitations has long expired.

That Rocky Mountain spring water Coors advertises is really Clear Creek which I suppose starts at a spring. We were about 10 miles from the Coors plant. They say they filter it at the bottling plant in Golden.

Over the years the EPA has cleaned up some of the old mine drainage into Clear Creek, but I wouldn't drink it. But perhaps the alcohol cleans it too.

Nice work.
Mine's worse. Haven't been on here in a while. Hurt neck = no pretzeling around under the airstream for about 10 months. But I'm all cured and back at it on a warm day. Lotta time to make up.

right, you would think the skin would totally cover the wood and not leave it up to some vulkem and band. Bad design. Make it better! Take lots of pics and vids to help put the puzzle back together!

Did a little work on my baby today and got a little help from my daughter and her friend,of course it's great for my daughter since she can see herself in the side of the trailer to make sure her is hair perfect. Girls!
