we got some paint on the first door on friday,the pumps are here and i've got to get my butt busy!
in the winter i get lots of Bluebird wanderlodges in here for service,last week we had 6 wanderlodges and one MCI converted coach here.
fixing this and that,replaced a roof top AC unit and a ton of other stuff.
all of these coachs came with 2 passengers,so,we had a crowd here for 2 weeks.
they are all gone but one coach now,so,its back to work on the doors.

i've been gone to Maxton NC for the land speed races for a few days.
now i have to get back to work.
we made up the hydraulic hoses just before i left to go racing.
today we took the cylinders apart so we can rebuild them,all they need is new seals,the shafts are good,tomorrow we go to get seals and welding wire.
i like to use 030 wire,i think it welds better than 035,it may just be me.
anyway,i have to order it in,the LWS (where i worked for 10 years) still does not stock it,A$$holes.
so,i get 2 rolls at a time.

if it don't rain we will start the 2nd door tomorrow,after we get the running done.

we have been kicking butt the last two days on the 2nd door,its been hot and windy,i weld with a mig and i have to turn my back to the wind to weld,no big deal!

it rained last nite,its not raining now and we are going to work outside as long as the rain holds off,if it rains we move inside and rebuild the hydraulic cylinders.
later today we are grilling steaks,so we work until 2 today,hey,its sunday!

no new pics yet.
carol was pressure washing around the pool yesterday and i didnt want to bother her!
maybe today i'll get some pics of the door and the diesel powered pressure washer made out of used surplus parts,complete with a 50 gal fuel tank,on a torsion axle too.

we had Rob the canandian here this weekend,he helped George hold steel in place while i tacked,when you have two guys holding and one guy tacking it goes fast.
George will paint one side today. then we flip it over to weld the other side.

i have to haul these doors 200 miles,if i stand them up on my trailer i don't need a permit,so i've been trying to figure how to stand two of them up and strap them down and then un-load them without getting hurt.
I woke up this morning with the plan.
no rigging required.
can anybody guess how?
Randy
