As promised, here is the rest of the story!
Are we still jacking with the trailer? .... and the answer is a resounding YES!
And did we finish it, well finally.... YES!
As of the first weekend in July, it has been doing nothing but rain. On the weekends, the only time I have to focus on this project, I have been lucky to get a few hours in before it starts raining again.
So, we are now in the last week of September, the temps are getting cooler, and we are seeing a drying spell settling in. If we are planning to get this top painted, we had to act fast. In New Mexico, Fall also brings the winds.
