So, since you're finally in paint, maybe you will actually be at Davis 2020? lol

Seriously though, looks good, glad to see some progress on it finally. Gotta remember though, the work part to assemble is coming up...

Me too!

Checked yesterday and all the jambs are done. I think the plan is to rehang all the doors and such, to a final align and block then spray the exterior. So close! I was kind of hoping it would be home for Davis weekend but I don’t think they’ll have it done next Friday.

Thanks! I need to go over there and see if they've made any progress but the CNC decided this was a good week to require a 4500 dollar repair.. so I'm afraid to see if the wagon is done
