It was either last year or year before at SEMA there was a polished one of those. Cool project.

Back in the day 1976 my neighbor bought an old Devco (I think thats right)
and painted it blue with an eagle down the side. He and his mom drove it from Seattle Wa to Washington DC for the Bicennetinial. They had a blast.

This is one of my favorites. Completely modern underneath, the roof rack hides a satellite and a RV style AC. The back is able to be closed off and has a flat screen, comfy chairs, coffee maker, it's a rolling living room!

Yeah that sounds like the ticket! Cool project man.

Killer project DB!!


But I have to ask --- "what's the plan"? It's not a tow rig.... or is it? Is it a flip? Cruiser? Camper? WTF you going to do with it? Or is it like DG's (Flashythingy) tow rig... it's just an item to keep a spot on the driveway oily.

It's a huge distraction is what it is!
I bought it before I bought the mustang thinking it would be cool to just have, the price was right and I'm a sucker for odd ball vintage.

The plan today...get it sorted and enjoy bombing it around until someone has to have it. The Seattle area has a huge vintage truck/trailer following, small businesses selling goods at open air markets and street fairs, not sure any of those hippies have money though.

The plan yesterday...Send it down to J-Rod&Custom and have him put it on the ground, load some crap in the back and take off for the summer!

The reality is I have two weeks before key components for the mustang show up, headers, rear axle and more Mike Maier Inc. goodies. So a bit of thrashing and than back on the mustang, later it'll be sold and I'll throw the money at the house.







Of course I may talk to the bank and see about a loan for the remodel.....

That is really cool. I may be interested in it for the right price.

So this happened....and I don't have the shoulders for it. This was about 10 minutes with Never Dull. I'm going to need to find someone who enjoys polishing or figure out how to do it with a machine.

About the sanding scratches, do I just sand it with real fine grit and thn try and polish it out?

Stupid distractions!
