|Placing the side stripping on and installing the windows!|
|Putting the other front window in. You can see|
the stripping we laid down across the roof bars so the
roof has some extra cushion. It didn't have anything like that
So over the weekend we still managed to cross a long list of things off the "chore" list. The windows were re-installed, all the "junk" went back into the trailer, the fenders had stripping laid into them and were re-attached, the tack room doors got an extra piece of checker-plate, all the edges and whatnot got sealed with silicone and we put extra rivets into the checker-plate in the front. I still have to head out and buy some vinyl, foam, and plywood for the bumper pads (we are going to redo them).
So what's left?
- Bumper pads need to be re-cut and finished.
- Electrical needs to be completely rewired. (Hopefully by the end of this week!)
- Floor needs to go down.
- Foam stripping around edges of doors.
- Rubberize the latches on the back of the trailer.
- Painting touch-ups to be completed.
- Fix the chains/ links. (The chains which connect the trailer to the truck don't have the best clips).
|This is pre-sealing, not that you could tell the difference anyways.|
|The trailer has gotten pretty dirty from all the installations of windows, etc.|
So, it's getting pretty close to being finished. If we really push, I'm sure we could get it done by the end of the week. Boyfriend is already thinking of switching out the fender trim for checker-plate as well, so that could be added onto the list as well.
Other than the trailer, things have been going OK. I shouldn't complain, but the need to vent is stronger than my ability to keep it all in...
Unfortunately, the car is a write off, which doesn't bode very well with me considering it technically isn't *my* vehicle. I feel pretty awful for the Boy and right now we are down to one vehicle... I suppose it could be worse, though. But it's been a pretty crappy last few weeks as I came to find my remaining rat, Rattitina, lifeless at the bottom of her cage last Tuesday. And then lastnight found a slow-leak in my winter tire from picking up a nail. Oh, and work announced everyone is getting a 9% pay deduction. So yah... things aren't so awesome right now.
But I did manage to get some pony time on Sunday afternoon with the red-mare and it made me happy.
