Pick up the metal to start the frame repair in the am. I may wait until the weekend. The weather is going to get shitty and I don't know if I'll have time to finish it before Friday. If I pull it in the shop Friday night then I have all weekend inside the shop. I hate winter!

Well I decided to dove tail the last 3'. It will have about a 6" drop. I'll get some pictures tomorrow. Had the Jeep on it today and the frame modification worked out real good no more flex.

Well I went to the shop about 7:00 and just got home at 12:30. Got the dove tail done. I think it came out just right. I was cutting with the plasma cutter and a piece of metal fell on the stinger. Wouldn't you know it it cut one of the wires, cut it apart soldered the broken wire.

The stove top came in today. Got the water heater on order and the sink.
I removed both the door and swing out window from the Lt side and cut panels to fit.
I ordered 1000 rivets and a air over hydrolic rivet gun. There both on there way also.
Took it home yesterday, dosn't look like I'll be working on it much in the next week or so due to the cold weather.

Hell I can hardly figure what I'm looking at but it's the floor plain. Going to pick up some cabinets and ply wood.

You might say I was busy today! Just at $800.00 for the wood and cabinets.
I expanded foamed all the cracks and gaps on the floor then screwed down some 1/2" ply. Bought a piece of A/B for the counter top. I'm going to formica it. Got just about everything in place, the sink and stove holes cut out and set them in place. I think I'm going to take the on 18" cabinet back and get a 12" one for the end by the fridge. That will make the booth seat an extra 6" wider. Man it was nice out today. Hell I was down to one shirt (started out with 3 earlier).

Guy came by in a wheel chair with a sob story about bL bl bl. anyway I gave him $10.00 and told him God bless. Well about 15 mins later I'm getting ready to go home and can't find my phone. I get the shop phone call no ringy dingy. After about 15 mins I figure the phone was on the ground near the trailer and the wheel chair guy picked it up. So I call Sprint and have it turned off after calling it 10 times. I finally decide it's gone and may as well move on. I'm headed home and low and behold see the guy sitting out front of a house on the way. I stop in the middle of the street walk over asking if he had picked up my phone. Told Him I pay to get it back. No No I didn't find a phone. The other guy says I found one in the parking lot earlier what's yours look like. (Yea right) any way the cripple pulls my phone out of his pocked and holds it out. I gave him $20.00 and told him God bless again. LOL I must be getting old. Din't even raise my voice. So that's how my day went.

Bought this so I can finish up the trailer. The trailer is all aluminum. 211 Miller with a spool gun. 120/220 I tried it on both 110 and 220 it worked OK on 110 but better on 220. Go figure

Bought a heater I'll get some pics. 18,000 BTU radiant style, I have turned it on and I think it will be plenty warm enough.

Mounted it where I'm 99% sure it's going to live. Seemed to do a good job even without any insulation and big gaps in the rear wall. Toasty"

Found a solution to my short bed truck clearance problem. They come in 9" 10" and 16" set back. We had disgusted how to modify the trailer and other solutions this is going to be the poop! Under $300.00 way to easy.

Well it was nice today and I had some time to work on it.

Got the water heater installed, installed some of the insulation, pulled the cabinets down, got the close fit electrical boxes they fit in the 2" wall and installed some rivets on the outside panels. I still have to run the 110 electrical wire and the 12 vt stuff. I may have the roof spray insulated. Talked with a guy today. He said it would cost about $250.00. I haven't decided that's what I want to do but it's leaning that way.
