Wheels are to be these. I should order tires for some more motivation.

Sorry I totally forgot to grab a picture of the manual! I set a reminder for tonight.

I just ordered tires. Time to get this going. I need to order clear, another quart of paint, and I am going to grab seam sealer locally. I heard good things about the SEM that comes in the standard caulk tube, but someone enlighten me otherwise if there is something better. The seams are on the exterior, so I need something that looks nice/tools well.

 

And the garage needs cleaning...... Badly.

Bondo showing thru and flashing different.

 

Still planning to shoot with epoxy and clear over it.... maybe... I really don't want to wet sand.

 

If I could just clear the roof that might help?

Methinks there comes a time when you have reached a learning wall on a project and instead of learning more, you just don't get the project finished as you agonize over stuff.

Wrap it up, consolidate your eduction and live to fight another project.

Even if it was perfect, you'd head out and get a door ding at some point.
