Good progress yesterday..rain was coming and had to get it watertight by the end of day. Installed the original pin box to check flex and I am happy to say I reached my goal of 1/2" flex

Getting there....made a new piece of Filon for the underside of pin box area. I glued 2 strips of aluminum to the backer panel so the screws for the nose would have something to bite. Cutting the reliefs in the backer panel for the curved section with a razor knife wore me out. New LED lights and rear electric stabilizers will be here tomorrow between those and some trim work to finish we will be ready for another trip. I did give a it test ride around the block today and I am very pleased with the results.

Missed a step, insulation and wiring done. I also changed out the 14 gauge + and - main wires that feed from the truck to 8 gauge.
