    I was a little shy about posting pics of my build. What with numerous flaws and small mistakes I felt like the kid in the back of the class who didn’t quite understand the lesson, especially when looking at the other builds being posted. But as John Harris writes it’s a “forgiving process” and after dozens of sheets of sandpaper and hours wearing earplugs and a respirator while sanding my teardrop looks pretty presentable. Presentable enough that I could finish it bright, which I’m not going to do, and be proud of the results.

    Next up, get my TD up on my half finished trailer and open up the hatch an doors and go inside.


    As I was building I kept thinking of all those imperfections that were piling up, not quite noticing the awesomeness in total that I was producing. Bad fillets, drilled a hole through the side, white spots, visible weave…. Now I just look at it and think “Oh hell yeah!”


    That’s the way I feel to
