    I bought a couple of aluminum mobile home windows for the sides. You can see where I framed for them if you look for the horizontal member in the side wall. It’s going to be a couple of weeks before any new photos. Other stuff to do...

    I used 3/8 sanded for the sides and front, 3/8 sheathing for the roof and floor. For some reason 3/8 was $4 cheaper per sheet than 1/4.

    Yeah, it’s definitely heavier than it could be, but believe it or not I can still lift the corner off the dolly. I figure wind resistance will be a bigger problem than weight.

    I added some bracing and started attaching the plywood skin. Every joint is screwed and glued. I have the top and side panels cut and ready to go but I'm going to attach the roof first. I have to go to Lowes to pick up a couple more sheets of...

    The inspiration was actually the Rayzr camper. These sell for around $8-10K real world from what I have discovered.

    I doubt there is any ferrous metal in an iPad for the magnet to attract.

    Stick with some of that really sticky double sided tape they use to mount picture frames to the wall?

    I only live a couple of hours away but I’ve never been. I hear the traffic and parking is just insane on that little gravel road. From what I understand you need to be prepared to hoof it a bit to get there.

    I bought six 1kg bottles of GM3 back when Grafs offered free hazmat on it. I think I paid around $14/bottle--that's a bargain! GM3 is a granular powder that's very bulky. It's a great choice for loading on a progressive because it flows very well...

    Based on my experience with GM3 in 9mm and 40 I suggest you treat it like Bullseye until proven otherwise. Here’s something I found from some Italian reloading site for 38 special loads. If you poke around I think other calibers are available...

    I stopped using them but I didn't pull my old pix. Maybe that means some of my old posts with pictures will now make sense again. I'm not a communist so I'm not opposed to them making a profit, but I didn't feel like I was getting $400 worth of...
