The long workdays on Walter have begun! Since he is 27 years old that means some of his parts are on the end of their life. Joshua has been constantly googling, researching, and watching videos on which parts to fix and how. We have very large boxes of pipes taller than me taking over our apartment. 2 weekends ago we had our first Saturday workday. We rolled into start at 11am and didn't leave until - - - 7 am the next morning! He was replacing the cooling system which required a lot of hose replacement, lowering the fuel tank, and much much more. We got pizza somewhere in the middle and at one point his face was so black he looked like he'd stepped out of a coal mine. I was busy working on my leather stuff for most of the night and gave up around 1am and took a nap in the front seat. But at 7am it was driveable again and he got us home!
The next Walter Workday was yesterday. We first had a stop at Home Depot, which took way longer than intended, then we ate Pizza hut in the parking lot and got to work around 3pm. I was there to build our bed and Joshua was putting in a new radiator and a few various other things. This time I got to help him a bit and he helped me a bit so that was quite fun. We drove out around midnight and got burgers and milkshakes on the way home.
I know the center supports for the bed are missing. We are adding them I promise.
Sadly I got our wood cut to the wrong length so we'll have to add them next time.
