Finally happened. PB all over me.

Tedious body work getting the cab straight. Funny how all those dents really look huge when its shiny metal. So pulling rocker dents. welding holes shut. Body filling and sanding smooth. Almost ready for urethane primer/sealer.
Figure it will only take me two weeks to clean the shop well enough to paint in there.

Took a break from body work and waxed the motorhome. 33 feet does not seem too big until you wax on--wax off a few thousand times

So yesterday I could not get PB to load open or do anything. It kept telling me to upgrade. This morning I logged in to delete my account and all is well. What's up with that?

Those rockers are tough eh? Thicker metal and stubborn. Looks like you will be squirting paint in no time. Better hurry up. It's going to be snowing soon.

Looking great Frank. May we be invisible to photobucket 24/7.

Frank and Al: Photobucket Outlaws.

Haha, you guys crack me up. If you do decide to jump ship on photobucket, I've moved over to Flickr. They explicitly allow 3rd party hosting, and are part of yahoo. I imagine they've got the bandwidth and good business sense to not blow up their entire business like PB did... Worth a look-see.

Frank, you're doing some seriously good work there, amigo. Going for much more perfection than I dare. Color me impressed.

I really got a kick out of you getting tired of body work and taking a break to hand wax that RV. Haha... Maybe you should try lemonade for your break next time? Or maybe an ice cold beer?

I've been meaning to ask you, what color are you painting this rig?

If all goes well, we can toast to accidental successes.

I'm convinced I'm just too dumb to know that I can't restore this old truck...

I guess Flickr is my next step. Dang, just kinda got used to PB.

Not as OCD as Al just don't want to do this again. When I get done using this truck it goes to my nephew and stays in the name line. I have always said I am my own worse boss. Kinda like a slave driver.

Honestly don't know yet what color. I have seen a green one I really like. However, I am partial to dark red/maroon, copper red. Maybe a two tone---just don't know. Maybe a maroon/tan to match the coach

One just popped up on FB that's painted in a 2005 Infiniti color, "liquid copper." Looks amazing!

Checked that Infinity color. Think I will go darker. I painted my 05LJ Kia Sunset Orange and it is reall close to the copper so I don't need two that close

Waiting for Toddthewelder to avarice!

Got it to see the surgeon yesterday. His PA reviewed the MRI with Faye and I and said "this is it." There is a nerve impingement between T11/T12. That peripheral nerve wraps around the abdomen just below the rib cage. I have found that when its irritated at the root not only does it produce a hardball size knot next to the spine but also makes the skin over the stomach fell like an open wound that is on fire.
Those folks couldn't stand seeing me cry in their exam room so tacked me on for a spinal injection at the end of the day! Not saying that was fun but after 3 weeks and 3 days of agony I was more than ready. The initial burst of lidocaine gave immediate relief on the back knot-- not so much in the belly. So -- this morning significant improvement in back and belly. Sore as heck at the shot site but that's to be expected and is a familiar verse to me with L and C spine issues for many years.

Today I can get back to getting my shop ready to squirt paint on resto truck and maybe even have some time to play with the new toys.

Also thanks for the pms. Much appreciated.

Flickr's where it's at

It's a little tedious for me having to load pictures from my phone then go back and make my posts from my computer, but it seems to be one of the better solutions currently.

Phone of camera=offload to PC. Open up in Photoshop to edit/comment. Open PB and upload, then open picture and copy then open IFSJA in and other window and find thread before pasting. Phew I am tired!



Still cleaning--maybe three more days!

Todd made the trip and got his dashboard yesterday. Interesting discussions about almost everything. Fun visit. Wish it could have been longer but the call of the job made that impossible.

Picked up a bunch of good welding tips. Thanks Todd!

Just because you can weld with a Corona in one hand, doesn't mean you forgo having a fire extinguisher handy!

I just got home and got to catch up on some of the posts. That was one heck of a drive, just under 4000 miles in 5 days and now I have to leave for west texas in the morning. Thank you again for the parts, the knowledge, and most of all the hospitality. I truly hope we get to meet up again and for longer next time

Great pictures Frank! Looks like a good time there. Better get that primer and paint on, it's going to snow soon.
