|Construction begins, note the
tables and storage racks made to provide workspace and stay organized..
|Freshly painted rear seatback gets positioned. I installed my floor panels with LOTS of platenuts instead of blind rivets to make the rear floor removable.|
|A batch of parts just shot
with PPG Delta. The
windscreen bar and rear grab bar will be blue to accent the gray
interior. On the right is a close-up of metallic blue
paint that will also be a part of the exterior paint scheme.
|The panel takes shape. It was drawn first in Visio, printed it on transparency material, and laid it on the panel for cutting.|

|More to come...|
