Dave57210 Today I winterized the travel trailer.

This weekend we go to a local tree farm and cut a Christmas tree. Need a 9 footer due to very high ceilings. Otherwise it just looks like a toy tree

We keep it in a pot in the basement all summer to stifle growth, but I still need to cut 6-8 inches off every year...

MARTINSR Damn I love working with Nick! We stayed after work tonight to assemble his box. Even that is a joy, he is such a great guy. I found a little Ford Oval for him in the emblem collection. He's going to remove the Harbor Freight one and put that.

I have a GS one on my box.

Rip VW The T strips are primed and the areas of the body where the T strips go are also primed!

I went out today and put the rubber strips on the edges and have the drivers side 75% riveted in place. The windshield setting rubber worked better than I had hoped.

I was going to use a spot or two of spray adhesive to hold the rubber in place but I found the rubber stuck in place nicely without any adhesive. I had to roll a small roller over it and dimple some holes but it worked out great. I have 3 or 4 more rivets to put in on the drivers side and that side will be ready to mount the rear window center section.

I see daylight in getting this nasty task out of the way so I can keep rolling on getting the mo-chine done.

1. passenger side after slathering it with SPI Epoxy. I call it slather cause I used a brush.
2. Laying out the first rubber strip.
3. Rubber strip to the bottom.
4. The side rubber installed and joint mated and taped.
5. Initial clamping of the strip to the body during install.
