The tour doesn't start at the beginning of the build process but I will try to put some of the pictures in order.
When they roll the chassis up to the first station, the frame has to be completely leveled and squared up if is a Freightliner. If it is a Powerglide chassis (made by Tiffin) they don't have to take that extra step.
A computerized saw cuts out the laminated sides. Metal tubing and some wiring connections get put into place early in the process. The basement cupboards get lined with a coat of felt or a similar material that is glued onto the metal.
The sides go up and into place.
There must be a dozen wiring harnesses that get put in place along the line.
The roof gets secured with long screws.
The myriad of cupboards and boxes and other woodwork gets secured into place along the way before the walls go up.
Toward the end the glass gets put into place for the windshield.
I asked Bob to take our picture with Red Davis. He gave it a shot but took one of himself instead.
There we go! Red is 83 years old and going strong!
After the tour we had to stop at the latest 'Sonic-like' burger stand.
In Red Bay it is called 'The Cardinal Drive-In. mmm - the burgers were good!
That was our day on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us!
