Sometimes you get what you asked for~!

Tiz good and bad I would say.

So I had my camper found! A homemade slide in truck camper in very nice shape. The camper would have come with the tie downs, the a/c and new tv he had just  bought. I worked my tail to the bone and came up a couple hrs to late. He sold it to another gentleman who came and upped my price by $400. Whats a man to do, no harm, no foul, I would have done the same thing.

It lead me to my new project .... a 65 Norris .... already 85% gutted, a couple minor fixes to a much bigger disaster I'm sure.

I'm heading out now to take pictures. I'll be keeping record of the refurb as I do the work. I won't be in a hurry, I will be using it 2nd week in Aug. for a week long camping trip so it will be at least 'dry', A/C'd and safe 8) 

more shortly ...... peace fosho

Comment by Chad on June 29, 2012 at 3:01pm - is the link to the album where I dumped the pictures. Server only allows 25 at a time so it'll be added to over the next couple days. I don't plan on really touching the unit till I go to home depot or lows and get a pancake type compressor with a nail gun and wire brush type attachment for the rust.  Please do chime in at any given time on "better ways to go about something" ....
