Default Camper repair, gotta finish this up for next week...

Looks like a lot more fun than it really was. Had a lot of help from my father as we were under a time constraint to get the new vent in and sealed up before the evening dew...

I've learned a bit about how these pop-ups are put together, and I know that I do not want to work on a leaking roof again this extensively... I do believe that once the roof has sagged, its real tough to get that roof bowed properly afterwards...

If I ever do it again, I will have to cut the top of the bow on a nice curve, and leave the bottom flat in order to get it to re-bow the roof...

Found some cleaner that is for boat seats at General RV that took almost all the water stains/mildew stains off the white fabric on the inside of the vinyl too

Anyhow, pics of the carnage...

Default Bumper Bash over the 4th

I replaced the bashed up bumper cover on my daily driver.

I picked up a replacement months ago, finally got the paint, got it painted, got it clear coated, 1st time I've ever used hardner in pain and WOW what a difference! I think it turned out pretty good, I'm feeling better about touching up the other oops from the previous owner now that I can actually make paint match!

Rebuilt my deck and got it stained, next, new gazebo and hot tub. Then an addition to the shop, and maybe then I get to work on some project cars. We'll see if life will leave me alone long enough.

Doing the brakes on my '93 Cadillac hearse.
Replaced all the lines, this flaring tool makes the job so much faster.



Previous owner said the right front brake dragged a bit the last time it was moved.

On top of the car projects I have been working on my house. Gutted this room because there was never any insulation in the 3 exterior walls. New sheetrock/insulation/wiring/trim and hardwood floors.
