That's the way to make sure it gets done right! Fantastic way to not miss any areas. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Thanks for all the great praise everybody. I am really happy to get it to this stage. But I'm feeling my age. Mounted that bodyin an afternoon and I was just beat, had to have a hot bath and acouple scotch then slept like a stone. I am still sore three days later. My 22 year old son was impressed. His words to me were, "Holy cow for 57 years old you are still kicking ass!" LOL!

Love the rotisserie. I've been wanting to do that to an Econoline for years. It sure helps getting the bottom looking as nice as the top. Can't wait to see this one done.
