Got no new pics tonight. My niece threw me a curve ball this morning, and added a bunch of work for me today, so I never made it out there.

Hopefully tomorrow, if I don't get soaked. Lol. Not sure what time the rain is coming, but they tell us it is coming.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Here is another pic I found of an Mci 5c, from the rear this time. It shows the double roof a little better.

And now folks, for your amusement!!!

This is what happens, when you think you have the lid to the Por 15 can cleaned, and you really don't. Next time you open the can you get this!

That is why I usually keep it in a glass mason jar.! [emoticon]

Started off wet today, and stayed wet for a good portion of the day. Then later in the afternoon it finally cleared up.

So, I grabbed the grinder, cleaned off a little Por 15 from the passenger side, and proceeded to add a few welds that I was unable to earlier.

A bunch of these were where I had removed the old steel that was holding the old windows in place.

I also decided to add a few welds to a few of the outside joints that I could not do when the siding was in place.

While it looks like I was welding for a long time, I really wasn't. It didn't take long, as the welds were short, and it went well.

Also went to the drivers side to add a few welds there also. Again, these were where the old window frame was, and I could not weld the new steel here, plus the outside was covered with siding.

Also had time to apply a little Por 15 to cover up the exposed steel after cleaning off the newly welded areas. Yay!!!

Also added paint to the drivers side.

I did, I think, tell you that I forgot to weld in one of the new roof joists, so while I had the welder out, I welded that one in and also coated the new weld with paint. Yee Haw!

So, that ended my day today. I was happy to get more of the welding and painting out of the way. Getting nearer to removing the old roof, and starting to install the new roof. Yippee!!

Step one, is to cut a hole in the current roofing, in order to remove it.

So, now my roof's got a hole in it.
