 Guess that won't happen  Angry

   I guess it is like a lot of things in life........just keep moving forward.

  Looked at the bus this weekend to see what I could work on first.......
    everytime I go out there something else ends up needing to be fixed oh the humanity Undecided
   Ever see a bus slowly dissintegrate in front of your eyes Shocked

Skip,
As a painter, I figure I make a pretty good mechanic, or maybe a rocket surgeon. I doubt that anyone would want me splattwering paint on their hard work.

But if you want to come down here and offer to prep, I would be happy to hook you up with a 30 or 50 Amp space, and maybe even the beverage of your choice. At least the snow is over here and the pool is almost up to 90°

Skip,

Well said!  And correct.

Hope you get some decent weather so you can bear down on it.  I don't have your snow excuse but I share that feeling that the thing is disintegrating in front of you.

I recently, within weeks, have removed and replaced my Dometic Refridge, riped out the old stove and oven and installed a new range and oven....Magic Chief no less, striped the oak floor and "hand rubbed" polyurethane on it....looks great, Replaced the brake master cylinder and rebuilt the air over hydraulics,  Replaced lining front and back and turned the drums and replaced all the wheel cylinders, Replaced a mile of rusted brake line (thanks PA salted roads)Ripped out the toilet and bath floor, installed a power vent, removed a gas tank and had it boiled and fiberglassed and after it leaked again I re fiberglassed it and reinstalled it, Rebuilt my steering gear, built a cabnet for the bath, Re did all my power cords and replaced all adapters, reran all my copper gas lines, and repacked all wheel bearings.    AND I STILL FEEL SWAMPED and that I am falling behind.  Yes, I identify with your feelings.

Hang in there.  Helena will warm up shortly.  Have you heard about global warming?  HTR will fill you in. Huh Roll Eyes Grin Grin Grin Grin

Be well and happy, earthling,

John
