    DSCF6512.jpgDSCF6513.jpgDSCF6511.jpgDSCF6514.jpgLuck was with me today. I had enough time to focus on my M1009's and I was actually able to start both and let them run for about a 1/2 hour. Both started with no issues. The wait light and then fired up on the first crank. Both have stock everything. I removed all the pre-painted parts from the cargo area of my current build.
    I wrapped them all up in cardboard and blankets and stored them in Red Riding Hood in the center bay of my barn. I also included Red Riding Hood in my engine exercise today. Started and ran flawlessly.DSCF6515.jpgDSCF6516.jpgDSCF6517.jpgDSCF6518.jpgI have safely and carefully wrapped and stored my painted parts. Not sure if I will need them this year anymore. But it gets them out of harms way and I can proceed on my current project. DSCF6519.jpgDSCF6520.jpgThis is Red Riding Hood M1009. I will be doing a thread on that project when it becomes time. It has been stored in the barn for over 20 years. Strange thing is both my M1009's have the cluster removed with no Generator lights and they charge perfectly as designed. DSCF6521.jpgI use this cluster and volt meter to check them and it is accurate. I checked it with my Fluke. I also scrubbed the inside of the M1009 fiberglass roof and cleaned it. I am happy with the end results and feel repainting it inside is a waste of time and energy. DSCF6522.jpgIt is still a little wet in the picture but you can see it is in great condition inside. Have a Great Day and Be Safe. Thank you for looking. More to come as it happens.

    DSCF6527.jpgI had some help and moved the M1009 roof outside. I started the M1009 and drove it outside so I could get the roof mounted back on the truck. DSCF6529.jpgDSCF6530.jpgThe roof is back on and that was the goal for the night. DSCF6531.jpgThe garage has been swept clean and the winches have been removed from ceiling beams. They would be nice head knockers during the final painting process. I should be able to get it sanded in about 4 hours at this point. DSCF6532.jpgDSCF6533.jpgThe M1009 is back in the garage and I have work away from home for the weekend. Monday looks like the next time I will get to work on the project. I had a set of seats from a 2013 Silverado Pickup that was converted to fire service. The center seat would be a very easy update in an M1009 and makes a nice arm rest and cup holder with open top storage. I am NOT going to do it but while I was cleaning out my lower barn I came across the center seat and passengers seat. I used the drivers seat in a friends 2008 Chevrolet truck. They were brand new take outs. DSCF6534.jpgDSCF6535.jpgHave a Great Weekend and Be Safe. Thank you for looking. More progress later.

    DSCF6540.jpgDSCF6536.jpgDSCF6538.jpgDSCF6539.jpgNot much excitement here. I spent the evening sanding the M1009 in preparation for paint. That was easy enough. I also reattached the roof with all the fasteners. That is a step in the right direction. A bit more sanding and hand sanding and it will be time to clean and mask the entire vehicle. I am removing the wheels when it comes time for painting. It also has a lot of taping and sealing to keep overspray from the frame and areas I spent a lot of time detailing. Have a Safe Day and Enjoy the Nice weather we are having. I will post more as it happens. Hoping to make more progress tomorrow after work.

    Tonight I finished the sanding and hand sanded the entire vehicle. DSCF6541.jpgDSCF6542.jpgDSCF6543.jpgAfter that I removed the wheels and tires and set it down on jack stands. Now comes the tape up and prep for paint. I want to tape and paper to the floor on this job. I hope to have a few fair warm days to get this sealed and painted. No rush job after all this work. I am going to tape off my new roof rubbers the best I can. I want to make cardboard to put in the window holes. Maybe paper. Depends how much help I can get from Family. Have a Great Day Be Safe. Thank you for looking.
