I am sealing the underside of the deck with Karnak roof repair putty. This is a tar, fiber mixture that is applies with a putty knife. I applied the putty to the underside

of the plywood by flipping it over and working on top of the trailer frame.  When the panels dry I flip them over and bolt them in place.

1 x 3 pine struts are bolted between the steel cross bars to support the plywood seam

I still need a 2ft by 8ft section of plywood to complete the rear end.

The two sheets of ply in the background of this shot will be my side profile walls.  Now I need to get my cad design

transferred onto the plywood.  What to do what to do??

laptop computer and LCD projector.

I brought my DLP projector out in the yard and borrowed a laptop from work.

I loaded the Visio Technical drawing program on the laptop and pulled my cad design off my

Home computer through a wireless network which I could access from the yard.  This gave me the ability to pull from 100's of designs

on my home computer.  Man technology is to the point where I can just think of something I need to do and there are a dozen ways to get it done.

So I figured that if things are this easy lets get some design work out of the way at the same time.  Here I am tracing my Teardrop logo to the side of the plywood

I used MS Word and a cool font and simply traced the text.

And here is the results.  You can see the front profile line on the left and the Kasperwing Sleeper text logo
