Riding For A Cure Trailer Rebuild Part 14 • 07-09-2020

Doug And Traci had relatives coming in for the weekend so I made myself disappear for the weekend and I went up to Bruceville Texas again to have Ronnie weld on some brackets to make the upper shell stronger. Thanks Ronnie! The next day Annette and I went to Taylor Texas and had some Awesome BBQ from Louie Mueller Barbecue! Afterwards we went in to Austin for the night. The next day we went over to The Oasis On Lake Travis to enjoy the view over Lake Travis and have lunch.
When I got back Lake Jackson I got busy on the upper shell putting in the panels in and the poor mans fiberglass. Lots of Gluing and sanding!

Doing a Poor Man’s fiberglass on the lower shell of the trailer. Lots of gluing and sanding.
David Canada of The Grand Motorcycle Tour Of Texas stopped by to say hi and see how the trailer build was coming.
Got the inside base done for the storage, seating, and bed area.

I Bought Bags • 07-11-2020

I went to H-E-B in Austin Texas and bought a few groceries and the clerk asked me if I wanted my groceries bagged and I said yes. Soon after I found out that she charge me for the bag. One lady in the other aisle said that it was a requirement from the city of Austin. But she was incorrect, the city of Austin back in 2013 did create a city ordinance that retailers had to charge for their bags but the Texas Supreme Court overrode that and said they could not go against Texas law. H-E-B has has the right to charge for the bags if they want to, there is no law against that.

Today we work with the one inch Nidaplast Honeycomb Panels for the upper part of the trailer, everything went in with no problems. After I get the Braces welded on the upper aluminum frame the panels will be glued and riveted in.

Riding For A Cure Trailer Rebuild Part 09 • 06-20-2020

A lot of grinding and cutting today. I grind all the welds smooth and when Doug got home from work we cut all of the two inch Nidaplast Honeycomb Panels for the floor and walls for the lower base of the trailer. It was a long day and evening of work.

Riding For A Cure Trailer Rebuild Part 08 • 06-15-2020

A YouTuber Ronnie Smith got a hold of me and offered to weld the trailer. So I loaded up the trailer and headed up to Bruceville Texas (South Of Waco) the next day.
Ronnie did an Awesome job welding the trailer. We got the floor and the top parts welded the first day. The second day we finished up the lower part and I tied everything down to the trailer the next day and headed back down to Lake Jackson Texas to continue work on the trailer.
