Maiden voyage

Posted 11-17-2018 at 07:13 AM by Lightfoot54


Hey look, no basketball hoop in the picture! I just got home from a 3200 mile spin around the storm. Headed counter clockwise on the 70 to the 25 then back on the 40.
Gas was cheapest in Oklahoma, 2.09; and the coach got 8.2 mpg. Wow, this is the time to break out this antique yacht.
Let me also say what i did with the headlight dilemma. I used a die to thread the...

Headlight adjustment

Posted 09-14-2018 at 05:41 PM by Lightfoot54

The headlights droop. I found out that it uses lights from a 1988 Audi believe it or not! I bought new plastic threaded sockets, part # 6317-11243, but there is no way to install them? One of the screws is knurled, not threaded, and one has its head concealed behind glass. Grrrr. It isn't supposed to be this difficult.

1992 Elante Project Rebuild

Posted 08-16-2018 at 07:18 AM by Lightfoot54

It is finally water tight so I no longer have to keep a tarp over it. The filon sheet was rolled up and first tucked under the rear lip. Then contact cement was applied to the outside of the roll and to about 4 feet of the plywood. After the glue tacked, 20 minutes, that 4 feet was rolled down and compressed. It took all day to do the whole thing 4 feet at a time. The whiteness of it is intense. I had turquoise circles in my peripheral vision after doing it. There are bacon wrinkles along...

Roof details

Posted 07-05-2018 at 12:23 PM by Lightfoot54

Not all parts of the roof are being completely replaced. The area over the galley seems solid enough to save, and it's full replacement would have increased greatly the scope of the project, so I am simply overlaying the existing foam with new plywood. This picture shows how the panels are lapped together with a mating strip so that they fit tight and smooth.
This photo shows the how...

1992 Elante Project Rebuild

Posted 06-29-2018 at 03:16 PM by Lightfoot54

Here is a photo after removing the fiberglass (the new front panel is already installed)
