RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Man. This thing is going to need a complete rebuild after they are done with the rebuild! Yay! Another project! Wahoo!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Did I happen to mention that I like my Pt Cruiser? Well, I did, I know. As my mom used to tell my dad sometimes.... We've heard that story 50 million times... MOVE ON! Lol. Anyhow, since 2x3's have come down from an all time high of about $6.49, to $2.98 each, I bought 10 of them. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/ptcruiser2x3.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I got my 2 layers of plywood glued and nailed in around the window, (red arrows), to level up the surface, so I could put insulation on it. Then I glued the insulation on. I used smaller, separate pieces of insulation to minimize waste. It's also easier to deal with a small piece than it is with a single, large one. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotswindow4.jpg

I have been amazed how one little 18 pound human can interrupt Moho work for the grandparents, though. Lol.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I used to come here to check on the progress as it was interesting to me, at 5 years running I think fulltimin has lost interest and does not have a completion date in mind, sorry just my observation. Lost interest? Or not....

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Next was to add a piece of 1/2 inch thick insulation below the window. I still need to add insulation around the window frame, so I can cover that up with 1/8" thick plywood. I did cover the back of the insulation with ChemLink adhesive just like I did with all the other insulation inside. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/passwindowinsulation.jpg For those who need a fix - here you are! I hope to be able to spend more time out there in the future.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Yup, still here! I needed to cut 2 layers of plywood to fill in the gap here, since plywood is no longer the actual advertised thickness. After several attempts, I finally got all 4 sides cut and glued into place, which now, is approximately flush with the steel framing. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/passwindowframe.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

It looks like you are more interested in getting to one million replies that you are finishing you MH. Aw, gee. I thought I had everyone fooled. 5 years, couple of thousand hours of work, over $11 grand spent, just so I can have bragging rights? Probably not. Lol. I can see how one might think that though. Thanks for posting. Kind of makes my 15 page engine R & R look puny. Richard It didn't start off that way. I thought it was going to be an "easy" fix, but alas, I didn't know when to quit, so here we are.....

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

We are back. Back from the mountains of Virginia, and the cabin my grandfather build for all his descendants. Back to civilization and internet access. Wahoo! Was a great vacation, but glad to be able to work on the moho again. I hope to me a little more regular than I have been lately. Thanks for hanging in there folks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Greetings from Harrisonburg Va. Been on vacation, and finally came off the mountain to have cell and internet access. I know, vacation from what? Lol. Plan to be back home towards the end of next week! :) Going back up the mountain, now.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

By the way, the wife and I spend some days last week in West Virginia and Virginia as a small get away for a few days. Also, just as a side note, some areas of WV and Va do NOT have any cell or internet service. Tough to post on here without either of them! Lol. However, we are back now, and about time to get back to work. :)

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Finally was to transfer the curve to the plywood, and then make the cuts on the marks I had just made. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern6.jpg And that is how I ended up with this, which is the same pic as above. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern4.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

In order to end up with a pattern like this for the front of the window at the bottom, required a slightly different approach, since I could not go outside to mark anything. I wanted to end up with a pattern looking something like this. Marking a rectangular piece of plywood, at the red circles, gave me a reference point to start the cutting process, but I needed to get a rough reference for the curve at the bottom. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern4.jpg That was accomplished by using what was handy, which in this case was a roll of tape. It's not an exact match to the curve, but it's close enough to get me started, and then I can finish the fine tuning after getting this close. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern5.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Switching to the top of the window, and sometimes, you just need a little helping hand to hold things in place. A nice extra piece of plywood that is sprung into place from the seat to the top of the plywood covering the window works just fine. Just as the bottom one, just going outside and marking the curve was a snap. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern3.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Switching gears just a touch for tonight. When I wanted to cut some plywood to finish framing around the pilot and copilot windows, I needed to make a pattern. First step was to mark some plywood to get started. I used a couple of plastic spring clamps to hold this piece in place. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern.jpg Next was to go outside and and mark with a pencil the curve I needed so I would know where to cut. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotwindowpattern2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Finally! Managed to get out there this evening - albeit a little late. Also got half the yard mowed today. Yippee. Lol. I added some extra fiberglass on both sides tonight. I am finally getting this flattened out fairly well. That means I will be able to finally glue the Tpo down for good shortly. First pic is of the drivers side. Oh, and yes, I now know my camera lens was a little dirty. Duh on me. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/pilotsfiberglass2.jpg The passenger side also. https://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copilotfiberglass3.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Sorry folks, but it has been one **** of a week! One of my business computer customers banking account was compromised. As such, I haven't had time to even mow my own grass. Not my favorite sport anyway, but, it needs to be done. Anywho... I found some other stuff of his online, that needed attention, so I've been spending my time on trying to get all his accounts secured, so this doesn't happen again. I hope to get back out there within a day or two and get more work done. I just needed to prioritize. Thanks for hanging in there. I look forward to getting more done to this puppy.
