Dip has its place. Sounds like you found a few ok uses for it. The entire exterior of a car is not ok.

Was little chilly this weekend but got a lot done.
Stove is cooking and fridge is cooling! Laid in all the gas lines. Everything but the furnace is up and running. Need a new thermostat and to tap some power for it somewhere.

How are the propane tank mounts holding up? I think that's the style we are going to go with on our shortie, just on the other side.

Busy week.
Got the heat exchanger mounted, fresh and grey water tanks installed, thermostat and furnace are up and running, and built a fuel/oil/coolant/firewood holder out back.

1500 mile, 10 day trip to the biggest race of the year is only 24 days away. Gotta get this thing finished up so the 3 of us are comfy for the trip!

Alignment and tires this week, hopefully finish up the plumbing this weekend to leave us plenty of time to pack!.

Getting close to done now. Need to tie into the coolant system and then hot water will be complete. Need to add a fill line to the freshwater tank and wire the pump and we'll have water to the sink and shower! Greywater system is complete.

Crunch time! Below freezing, fresh powder and 30mph winds today so we decided to not finish up the plumbing but rather prep the bikes and make sure that I can get 3 in here somehow. Looks like we're good to go!
Weather forecast looks promising tomorrow so hopefully we can put the finishing touches on.
