the slider piece finally broke after 18 years and many hours of use. and by blind luck i found a new piece in my rv drawer. have no idea where it came from easy fix for a non builder. i like these kind of issues.


i also found an easy way to get my slider off and on solo. i fabbed up this special board to help lay the slider on before attaching the rear and then the front.

Looks like he's doing a little unintentional oil flow testing around those big fillets!

If your interior paint is badly worn then head on over to any auto parts store and pick up a few cans of trunk spray paint. It is textured and really looks great. I can't say how long it will hold up as I just did my 6-A with it. I would post pics but I am technically challenged. As it wears it will be very easy to touch up as the texture in the paint prevents The appearance of being painted over. If someone else has done this maybe they can post a pic.
