Just put 5 gallons of 383 on my 1083 camper ! Mixed 4 part 383 1 part laquer thinner and it came out great .There was some concern with the Rapco being to glossy so i used 4 to 1 paint and laquer thinner shot it outside in 80 degree sunshine i shot 5 gallons and not 1 run and thats not because im a good painter it went on so easy the truck was like a sponge ! I sanded the cab and box with a da and 220 and a scuffpad and it came out flat no sheen . If i had known it would go so easy i would have done this a year ago.

chucky You mentioned that you know how to email pix from your iPhone. Heck, send them to me and I will post them up for you. I'd be more than happy to post them and label them as your pictures... Send me a PM and I will give you an address or my txt address to send them to?

You did sorta what was thinking if I was to push my ambulance box up to the cab (but that would mean rebuild walls and move wheel wells.. but I digress) question about the added on chamber shown in the first pic.. what is the purpose of that?
I made that intake box when i first started playing with the idea of a big generator set was that i didnt think the intake hose would go around the back of the gen windings but i was able to use factory intake pipe through the bend around the tail so i did away with that box

I just caught that icon in your post that said m1090 are you going to mount a box to your dump bed?
That's the plan. Going to cut the dump sides and mount similar to what you have by cutting the container floor out.

It's a 45' high cube, so may do a sleeper above the cab since we have the dump to raise it and clear cab tilt for service.

Got 5 to fit in there so every bit counts.

And on top of that, if you have a sleepy-head who won't get out of bed you have the opportunity to stand them up and slide them out the back door! This might be really fun :cool:

Man thats a hell of a good idea . Go get you a new automatic welding hood and new gloves and atleast 50 lbs of rods your gona need em!!! And a good respirator for when your grinding any of that green paint before welding that carc paint in the lungs is bad bad juju dont push your luck . Keep us up to date when you get started and one day at a time theres no rush .
