    Need to do some serious pressure washing, but it's taking shape. Tool box clips out of rack and will have a full size extinguisher in front of it. Floor jack goes below with another tool box of lesser used stuff. Then 2nd 37" spare to wrap up the senseless package. Also enough space between bed...

    Enjoying some Northern Wisco camping action. Cage worked well, tent is really high so I’m using the extension (extra level of sketchy). Need to sort the roof rack and perimeter lighting still.

    RTT won’t open all the way!

    Camping challenge! We’re out in the woods in Northern Wisco and RTT is not happy. Smittybilt RTT, couple years old. Won’t open all the way (base halves will not interlock. Image below is as far as it will go. Not seeing any obstructions.

    The Bay Window Bus was a seven year build that wrapped last summer. Modified or replaced every single part of the car. Dropped 8", built 2L engine, custom interior, tubbed fenders, notched frame, bla, bla bla. Silly car, but makes me smile every time I look at it.

    Not a great shot, but you get the idea. Light tabs on all 4 corners and in the middle, all wired internally (will get wired to upfitter switch) Tabs for roof rack and mounts for the obligatory traction boards. Dropped nicely into the bed pockets and bolted in. Once it cures for a dead more days...

    The Track Supply stuff wants a bunch more time, even with hardener. Directions ask for 24 hours between coats (Who does that?)! Today’s painting took 9 hours before I could handle it (May be time to find a new brand!)

    Layed the interior black coat on. Time constraints force Using some pretty ghetto Tractor Supply paint sprayed through a $15 HF gun. Coming out oddly good. Downside of this stuff is how painfully slow it dries.
