Axels are on the trailer

With the help of Slvrng who owns the 55 flying cloud I was able to get my axels on the trailer. It definitely helps with people pitching a hand. I was hoping to finish this weekend with wiring the breaks and making sure all the nuts are very tight, but rain all weekend in the forcast. Hopefully I will get them finished on Sunday.

I used a step up bit to drill 8 holes. The bit cut through the metal with no problems. Slvrng who has done this type of work coached me the whole time. Well they are up and looking good. I left the tires off because I can't move it in my fenced back yard until my trucks back end gets fixed. I won't get it back from the shop until next thursday.

Thanks to all the airstreamers who have educated me on axels and how to buy and install. Thanks to the guy who helped me get the axels. You guys were great.

I will be picking your brains when I remove the airconditioner and put on a new seal.
