Progress sometimes comes in small victories other more. Red letter days are just that, this report is not one of those but still progress doesn’t always have to blow you away. Today will blow a few people away though….hey, if you had a coach “in process” stuff happening you WANT to know what’s happening so take today as one of those. I have more and more hanging on each post here…..I first have to say thanks for the visit and support but then also I look at this as giving part of the experience to those glued to the flat screen watching for their baby. So lets have some fun with this:
I picture a machine….maybe more than just a machine strapped down to the operating table…… nasty old parts pushed up to the side of the building….. under the lift …oh, excuse me operating table we look into the cavity opening and this looks back at you All freshly renewed, clean in it’s new clean room compartment…. the 455 motor is being strapped in for it’s job Tranny, diff with Ragusa cover, magnetic oil plug bolt, Ragusa pan (clean and leak checked) all in our Koba/Co-op colors. What do colors mean? Well, every self respecting engine enthusiast makes a conscious decision what the color of a motor should be. Sounds silly but hey, you want to sress this throbbing power plant with colors that reflect to whoever makes the decision what that motor means to them. Hey, sometimes it’s “to original colors” and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you leave it to me which even though this IS the coach with the original Bargman latch Yes, this is the babe strapped to the lift getting some new muscles MY colors cover and represent a big , fat, solid hunk of industrial MEAT! “Don’t need no stinkin chrome or Mommy’s colors……I am a badass low compression, low RPM, hi torque pulling motor and I just wanted to let you know that! This awesome early, 1973, 23′ blue beauty my belong to Ron and Julie but that’s MY motor damnit! So this puppy will represent much……. from this to now this I’ll do some shots of the top of this motor project where the FiTech is being prepped up…….
Progress comes in many forms…just to have the coach back on all 6 paws is a good thing so here’s progress With the holding tank and maserator ready for service, the rear wheel bearings, brakes, 2 wheel Ebrake and quad bag all done with the beast back on solid ground. Up next this is dash AC #3 that is gearing up for some dash fun…….windshields and FiTech on the motor.
Also progress with all 6 NEW style aluminum rims and Firestone slippers, this coach too with new holding tank, maserator, rear bearings, brakes and quad bag is also on the ground
The skin is on the lifting side, wedding photo-booth kiosk now ready for some interior refinishing we may be refinishing it with the same new process we’re doing on this other Airstream trailer and you’re probably asking why we are “bagging” things off on the interior like we do painting the exterior of a coach? BTW, here is that coach you see in primer finished but that’s another story…….with our new found variable texture gun we plan to completely texture coach to selected color the intire interior of this trailer You know, the finish we achieved on Ruby’s plastic panels So yep……stay tuned, we’re getting into some pretty fun stuff now!
See, progress comes in many forms…Came in extra early today to get this caught up and I’m just itching to get into Texas Tux dash today….it will blow air before the end of the day!!!!!!! I hope……..
Thanks again for coming by….wether you like us or not, I just hope I gave you a little entertainment and some fun today. Hey, isn’t that what all of this is about anyway? Am I trying to bang out one invoice after another or is it about more than that. It’s kinda like that reporter interviewing the ball player who had just retired……”Sir, if they paid you a million dollars to play just one more year…would you do it?……Hell son, I’d do it for nothin! All of this HAS to be about more than the money….and it is…..see ya tomorrow..
