Our last update was a big step forward. The roof was pretty much there - straight, sealed, water-tight and stunning - top coat in situ. Various panels had been primed, straightened and in shape.
Now, we have fully primed sides! The panels are beautifully straight, not a blemish in sight, all the rivets are whole and it's all finished in a rather garish green primer. Take a look:

That's one side - however, the other side has needed a few alterations before primer - namely the cutting and welding of new metal to replace old rusty steel.

And other than that this week; we've been busy stripping more interior and prepping and repairing internal panels to ensure all our outside work is going to be mated to a solid internal shell.

These weeks are certainly flying by - it only seems like yesterday I was writing of our last update. Anyway, stay tuned for more updates - lots of goodness to come! Tom
