The Process of Progress

It has been nearly 5 months since my last post.  I have not worked on Harvee D. much this summer but have been working on stuff related to this project.  As you can see in this picture Harvee is leveled and resting on several jack points on his New Pad!  The concrete includes a foundation wall (just to the Rt). which is the first wall of my future building.  I know, cart before the horse... 
Well, now that I am back on track, brakes are disassembled and I am evaluating options. 
System will be all new, some upgrades will be done.  At 13000 pounds safety is everything!  I will post pics when it gets interesting. 
The interior is completely gutted now and I am also continuing on the stuctural rebuild.   Pics of that will be added to the Travco Bones post as it progresses.
Feels good to be back on it!
Just for grins, this is what Harvee D looked like the first time I saw him!  It sure was cold that day!


  1. Hopefully you can keep the project going --- I love that you are really saving this one - not just keeping a Travco going - but bringing one back to life.

    Best, TT
