Yesterday evening late still another new purchase coach came in from Canada. I’ve give it good marks to get here in one piece… but as you know you must “trust but verify” every screw on the coach. This makes 7 coach in here in the same position, Chris R. is flying in today to pick his coach up headed for the Netherlands.. another recent purchase… so I DO think there must be something in the water…
So maybe our older cat is succombing to the inevitable… he slept in the living room next to… not on but right beside the sheet we put down to designate the play area for the kitten. Still may go for adoption but Danzig probably needs the reality that he doesn’t own this house… We’re all like that sometimes when change hits us so I’m giving him that credit. Yeah, it’s a soap opera there at the house, good thing I had to go to work.
OK, lets get down to today’s fodder, You must seal your rails. The top rail where the exterior sidewall meets the roof panels is not a seal rail, the seal is under it, that rail is a protective cover because GM knew the joint under that rail would be a leaker.. Here are the rails pulled off on Ron K . coach and here they are back on Tim’s coach has been here for some time, in the past. At that time we didn’t push to have the rails sealed on an exterior finish… guess what, we’re doing them now! No money saved there… Actually the side wall of Tim’s coach (Transmode) was reskinned with no fastners at the top, the screw driver is poked through to the interior… no wonder it leaked! Yes, we painted this coach some 7-8 years ago and back then we didn;t pull the rails like today. We had no idea the side of the coach was reskinned. So, any coach we do any exterior to MUST have the rails pulled and resealed.
OK, gotta go, see ya tomorrow….
