phoenix2013 Posted April 26 Report Share Posted April 26 (edited) Things have moved significantly forward yesterday. They have moved from this (a congenial meeting) to visiting the machine shop and checking on a pile of steel tubing dedicated to a bed project. Also, checking on a Jeep to go on a bed Check out the $12,000 paint job on the Jeep I also got to visit Camping World where the rig which will be pulled by this truck is getting all kinds of upgrades like solar and these lithium batteries under the bed (more on that later). I was also told that the jeep on the bed will have a companion in the fifth's garage. Since the truck needs to proudly showcase this triple offspring, it will be heading to the shop for a coat of black Imron. Interesting, isn't it? So interesting in fact that Old Goat got himself a project, I believe it's a failed retirement number six. He's going away to New Hampshire at the end of May so anything that requires hands or eyes on must be completed in four weeks. First milestone, start welding the bed in two weeks, shop has a window. Therefore, concept, project plan, bed design, material list and cut list needs to happen in the next two weeks, beyond then it's execution. Should be a good time race. I gave this project it's own thread so you can follow the race. I know, I know, if you guys are typical race fans you want to see what happens. The Old Goat has the pole position at the moment, you want to see how long he can maintain it, or how far back he slips and I know few of you are just waiting for the crash and burn moment.
