Last Friday my Son (Mitch) & Grandson (Alec) drove from northern California to pickup the 69 Mustang.
They brought a U-Haul trailer to take it home.
Alec did the honors while dad supervised.
Got it loaded up without any damage.
Strapped down with safety chains in place.
They are very pleased with the restoration that took over a year, it will be in the family for a long time.
The rain lasted through Monday the 9 th so we waited until Tuesday the 10 th to pick up the wall and roof panels. This is the second load with the truck and trailer at Air-Light.
The Company name is Wanessa-Sue Inc. and the building is all made with the Air-Light panels so I could see how to put all the panels together, that and very good instructions from Wanessa Sue.
I unloaded the panels with my tractor and moved them into the shop so I could use the overhead hoist to sort them, then to load them into the truck and hauled them around the house to the Caboose.
The track channels were lay'ed out and screwed down then the first two panels were installed. I moved my rolling scaffold onto the deck to make it easy to reach the top of the panels and top cap. The tarps in the foreground covered the deck during the rainstorm.
Extensions were added to the scaffold and a cable come along used to handle the 12' tall panels as they are to big for one person to handle. I was able to get the two 12' panels in place the second day.
The third day I got the next four 8' panels in place with all the attachment plates and top channels installed. The panel are held together by the tongue and groove and 3" X 5" plates at the joints, bottom and top. All plates, sheet metal corners, top & bottom channels, screws and fasteners are supplied with the panels.
Braces were added to support the walls as they are being installed.
On the forth day I moved all the wall panels out of the shop to the caboose deck because the installation sequence of "A" South side, "B" East end, "C" north side and "D" West end will not allow access to move C & D in after the B end is in place as you can see the only access is through the gate on the West end for any thing that must be brought in by truck. After the panels were moved I got the East end panels installed.
This picture was taken this morning after the rain had started that is suppose to last for several days so I will have to wait for the weather to continue.
