I’m still planning to splash the Roamer later this year, so getting critical parts prepped, painted, and installed is a priority.
I intentionally left the bottom tube on the ER steps partially bare to make it that much easier to weld them in. I’ll have a “welding day” pretty soon, since the new raw water intake standpipes have been sitting in a box since last year, the new muffler shelves are ready to install, and the fuel tank inlets need to be relocated.
I found the molded hose for $6 and change at rockauto.com. That’s less than half of what they’re charging at the local outlet of national chain auto part stores, and by buying it there I deny the state it’s thieving sales tax…gotta celebrate the small victories.
I think it looks lots better than before.
And that’s another check in the box on the honey-do list counting down to splashing in 2016.
