These are the words everyone wants to hear about their project and rightly so. With the proce3ss we are trying to crank up, even folks with other projects in here should be excited on getting close to a delivery one one coach because that pushes their coach just that much closer to the same goal.
In the past the question was always “when will it be done” and for sure that’s still the number one question, the reality is though it’s close to impossible to estimate one projects delivery with the other projects in line able to effect that outcome. “Assembly line production” in this case should not bring up visions of one car after another spitting out the end of a building in Detroit. No, each project gets attention from the same single crew to enable all projects to move forward together. If one coach gets left behind the assembly process is smashed.
So guys, watch as we progress, think of that as success of the whole and consider that subject as it will be in your project when we get there.
Boy… all that was a mouthful but what I’m saying is any project of the magnitude we undertake has so many variables… just sit back and injoy the ride….. the project we’re doing for you is probably a once in a lifetime thing… enjoy it and enjoy seeing what others are getting too.
So one more step on the exterior of Cal’s coach here deals with an interior project…. the inside of the door. Hey, when someone comes to your coach the first thing they see of your interior is theoutside then the inside of your entry door. I feel that first look is the lasting one so I added just a few things to Cal’s door interior The “AOK II” in the name of the coach and was on the painted black latch panel. We colorkeyed the inside panel to the outside color then cause I could I added 2 strips of Gator hide with a brushed aluminum Logo panel. Not really that complicated but just a little eye candy when you open the door. The opening next to the entry handle is to access the lock mechanism. Trust me… if your entry door lock ever jams, you will be happy this hole is there .. That opening will get a gator hide panel too Hey Cal, what about the gator hide…. should match some boots….
Today Cal’s coach should be on the ground…. we were cleaning up his wheels and found his tires are 5 years old. Hey wait… that may be his coach but that’s MY paint job… blowing a tire going home would really ruine everyones day. Went to my tire supplier yesterday for a new set of shoes for AOK II, what a place
I’m proud of my uncle “Jim” who was general manager of this place… brother you wanna tire, this place has’m! Of course wholesale only this is the tire dealers.. and my… tire supplier. I think they have weather conditions in this building!
Yeah it’s tough when your tires look great but age has timed them out. Listen.. you never see old tires on a Corvette… the driver knows since his entire car is made of plastic a tire blow out will peal the body of the car off…. brothers and sisters our beloved GMC is manufactured using SMC (sheet mold compound) “Corvette plastic” from the beltline down to include the front and rear caps. Guys, you can’t play with old tires…. sorry. But just remember new tires look great, will better help you get from A to B without troubles. You cannot buy a tire older than 7 years in Europe I am told….. good enough for them, a great idea for the GMC. Baby needs new shoes and it’s just there man. You wanna get use out of your coach… I mean isn;t that why you have the piece anyway…. it needs good tires
So come back tomorrow, I hope to show you AOK II on the ground… washed and looking good…. stay tuned for that.
Gotta go, the day is on… gonna be hot again…. can’t wait, put me in coach….
