Almost back together and dried in for winter, almost…

After several weekends trying to repair/replace the framing on the front driver’s side corner of this camper and having the entire front end covered in plastic and having to stare at a gaping hole for many weeks…this old camper is completely framed in, repaired, and ready for a new piece of aluminum on the front end.

I am hoping that I can get this exterior sealed up by next weekend.  I placed a smaller piece of plastic over the bottom of the front end: I secured the trim with one screw on each side: and I caulked both sides to keep water out.  It was difficult to get the trim back in place on the repaired side.  For a moment, I thought I was going to have to redo part of it; but with a little force, it all came together.

I was so elated that I layed back on my driveway and breathed a sigh of relief.  Then looking up, I spotted a small rainbow–it felt like a positive omen. Considering it has not rained in a few days, it was bizarre that a rainbow appeared as soon as I succeeded in putting my front end back together.  So many weeks it has been in pieces.  I could not be more pleased.  🙂

Come to think of it, an upside down, quarter of a rainbow–very strange.  Hmmm.
