Driver side

I have spent more time working on the driver side framing. I have a little more birch inside to install, 2 more pieces. I had one rusted screw on the top side skin and had pulled the skin to look at the wood and it pulled through. So I have a larger hole in the skin that I will need to figure out later. I had to also start working on pulling the edge trim off the front up to the roof. I got some screws off around the front window and took off the drip rail. Rusted screws are a nightmare. SO I have about 3/4ths of the driver side framing replaced. The weather has been hot so I started using two tarps to create shade between the camper and the fence so it is a little easier to work. Still hot but easier not being under the sun. With moving towards the front end (inside it is the closet)there is more birch to be replaced that I thought. I might have to take the top skin off to see the condition of the wood at the top. I was hoping to not have to disturb the roof. But I need to fix everything that needs to be fixed.

It has been a little time since I posted last. I have been working on it though. I worked on more framing over Fourth of July weekend - Boy it was hot. I tried to do some work inside where it was cooler - painting my living room yellow - had to prime and paint. That was a lot of work. I think I have to many projects going on.

So I have all the framing that needed to be replaced, done on the curb side. I also replaced the inside birch on the curbside. I still need to check out the front end. I installed the insulation on the curbside. That took a lot longer than I thought it would.

I also started replacing the rotted framing and birch on the drivers side. The bottom piece is really hard to get out. The screws are rusted and stripped. I will work on it later in the week. it is supposed to rain for the next few days.

I also went to the Secretary of State to get information on getting a title. Seems a little harder than I thought. I need to get a bond, appraisal, form and the tax form and fee. I have to call my insurance company and see if they have more answers to help me. I hope I get it in time for a Midwest Rally I signed up for in September.
