No worries. You can cry on my shoulders as I watch you work Lol. You can start with sound proofing my engine compartment.

I have stopped at the engine compartment.  Routinely I tell people (before I raise the hood) that "pretty stops here."  I have not sound proofed it, dressed it out, or any of that.  Sonnie put one chrome nut on my alternator pulley "to dress it out some" (as he put it) and that is it.  I powerwash it once a year and that is the extent of that.  My genset is soundproofed however.

Today I started at 2:15 a.m. and finished out around 7:30 a.m to beat the heat.  Just get focused and do it man, I know you can.

Yes, I have heard it said that very same way.  Perhaps I should have chosen something else?  Shoot for the moon, if you miss, you still get all the stars thrown in for good measure.  How's that?  Here is another one:  "Everybody likes the underdog, because everybody feels like the underdog. No matter how successful you are, you always think, No one's being nice enough to me!"

Thanks I appreciate it.  I try hard to exercise patience and NOT touch things until they are dry, doesn't always work, but I try.  Another thing is to get the best possible stock (materials) that you can find or afford.  Often I secretly wish that I had spent more money and purchased better materials or taken more time to complete the chore at hand.  This bay was about a three week period if I remember right (don't work it on the weekends, just weekdays).

No matter what ... Someone will find fault with it, if you hang around long enough. 

A neighbor came by the other day, "wanting to see what it is that I have been working on" so I showed him, gave him the ten cent tour.  He looked it all over, leaned down, and with his hand, took a swipe at my floor with five coats of clear coat on it and said to me .... "You should have sanded this between coats."

I just gave him my best toothy smile and said, "Listen, there is only ONE PERSON this has to please, and you are looking at him."

End of conversation.

I think he should just remove the bay door...less wind drag that way.  Plus less metal to polish.

You could put a window on the bay door with some neon accent lights... That would look cool at night...

I don't remember where it was that I saw it, but a guy had a Prevo and he had taken the first bay and put in AC, Radio,TV .... the whole nine yards, also had a little side window on both sides for his kids.  This is where they liked to ride, and their access was a square hole in the middle of the aisle up front (hinged access door).

Everything was fine, until someone left the door open and mama walking in the dark, kind of did a brodie in the hole.

I will give it some consideration and get back to you on it Mike.
