Just a brief good news, bad news, good news update.
Good news: I got home with both 4'x8' polycarbonite sheets for the pop up still intact despite a 100 mile fwy ride with them tied on the bed of my S-dime.
Bad news: I got both 4x8 sheets of plastic through the garage,over the Ford and Suburban, through the (wifes creation garden?) back yard and onto the patio for storage where I tipped over a wooden painters easel which skittered across the stucco wall, and went through the screen and both windows of the door that leads to the master bedroom
I spent most of the day today (and most of the night last night on the couch) repairing a 70 year old door assembly. Oh, and I took pics but accidently erased them--what's that all about?
Good news: I was allowed the run of the metal fabrication business I have mentioned before (even had qualified help). The 1/8 " sheet metal to be used on the pop up now fits the rounded contours of the bus roof. I trashed those pics as well--Hard to get good help when you do it yourself
I hope to at least get things tacked together tommorrow and will try to post pics.
