Thank you for the video! The POR5 on the frame looks GREAT! Stay Wild! (I know, that's your phrase!)

Today marks month 7.... Wow. I never anticipated this project turning into a frame-up restoration that could last over a year.... But if that what it takes! It's what it takes.

MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT: I now have floors again after 7 months.

Also, check out this WILD cabinet I found at a thrift store- someone must have just wanted it gone and nobody at the store wanted it either! Amazing.

There is also an ornate chandelier piece that I found - it was built for candles but I am going to wire it up to hold LED candle lights.

This build is starting to get wacky. And I love it.

It's taken 7 whole months before it started getting wacky? You must be very fortunate, or a slow learner...
Cool cabinet! D'ya suppose it held funerary urns in it's prior incarnation?
Which makes sense: earning more mummy for your sarcophagus.

Hah! This isn't my first build. You should see my other van if you wanna see 'wacky'

Yooooo (1 of 1).jpg

It has a climbing wall and holds all over it - flames and a massage table/guest bed. I'm not green to the realm of wacky

Nawp! I'm picking up what you're laying down. Definitely not your first rodeo!
It occurred to me after I posted: you could rig your sarcophagus next to you while transiting, to illicitly use the HOV lane!
(Tho you might only get away with that trick in Egypt...)

My friend Eddie, rest his soul, used to drive a 64 chevy rat rod pickup and he kept a full model of a skeleton in the passenger seat.
