Day before yesterday, I waxed the winter's grey streaks away on the aluminum sides, and waxed the sides of the fiberglass roof. Then yesterday, I waxed the whole of the flat part of the roof, cleaned and treated the vent covers with plastic preservative, and waxed the hood and front fenders. It was actually pretty easy, probably because I had done it less than a year before. But I really wish Provan had offered a painted roof, with similar type paint to the metal sides. They're just wax on, wax off, no rubbing required even after 6+ years, unlike the gelcoat of the molded roof. I hope to find time tomorrow to rewire the dash radio to the house battery circuit.

I'm taking it to a stargaze tomorrow night on the BRP, a day-trip to an archeological site ~125 miles away on Saturday, and overnight for a lab night on Monday (google 'Joara').

Jim, "How many lawyers does it take to shingle a roof? Just one, if you slice him thin enough."

Adding slide toppers to it and replacing the front decal's on the overhead as the ones that were there looked like hell... Getting it nice and pretty for our upcoming Yellowstone trip this summer...

Brought home the coach to give it a good wash. Had my fingers crossed hoping not to run it out of gas on the 4 mile drive from the storage lot to home :-0

Speaking of rebuilding and such. How fresh is the build on that 440? Did you pump it up any?

As to the long 'work time' without mush results. You management now or what?

Lack or productivity normally, can be attributed to paper pushers. Just sayin.

No reason to build a 440 with just 47000 miles on it, And Yes I have been Management from the start...
Also with gas prices if there was going to be any pumping it would be down not up....LOL
