I then, drilled additional holes in the side pieces for the Kreg screws.

When I am assembling pieces like this, and need them to be flush on the ends, I typically like things up like this.

Then on the inside, I put a clamp up against the piece which has the screw in it, so as to not allow the screw to pull the side in, and cause an alignment problem.

Time to test fit the box again, and at least it fits. It's a touch loose, but, it will be fine. Not that big of a deal, other than hurting my feelings.

fulltimin,

As someone who checks out your posts several times a week, I have a question (now, I'm sure the answer is tucked somewhere is all of your posts, but I don't have the stamina to look through them). Once your inside build is done, do you still have the engine/under the hood stuff to do, or is that all done? Also, I just have to ask-are you just taking this one day at a time, or have you considered a possible end date to all of your work? I admire all the work that you have done.

No, engine work has yet to be done. No, there is no end date.

When one enjoys their work why rush to have it all end?

The enjoyment should be in the use of the product. This is anything but! If you are actually a Pastor you must understand that his wife is a Saint!

I don't have a hard end date. The sooner the better would suit me just fine.

It's a one day at a time project. Some days go better than others, as the last posts show. Lol.

Hope to try to get it running in 2022, since it didn't happen in 2021.

Thanks.
