Oh ye of little faith .

The patch for the filler neck almost complete .


Tongue wiring is complete .

Trailer jack and saftey chains are welded up .




The drivers side is mostly complete now . Tomorrow I have to go install air lines for a friend , but come Wednesday I should be able to finish up the last of the body work on the trailer .

I also dropped off my measurements at the machine shop for the front panel , and I hope to pick it up Wednesday . I took a page from Clint Riveras build thread and I am using the last of my upper tub rail scraps to finish out the front with the panel from the machine shop .

That's looking pretty slick, man. I'm getting jealous.

You heading somewhere in this direction, tomorrow?

Depends on how quickly I get Greta's control arms back into place. Once they're torqued down I'll be taking her on a test drive...but that might not be until Wednesday, if my usual luck holds.

What you runnin' 6-gauge wire for, Willis?

I didn't do anything other than soak some joints and make sure I had a few tools at the ready. I spent the rest of the day laying out some sketches for trailers and for rigging the Ultimate 12 that's sitting over at Muppet Labs.

Glad you're enjoying the pig; I'll do chicken next time and hopefully render you comatose.
