Nearing the finish line?

Posted by blogadm on July 27, 2020 in uncategorized |
Trial fitting and getting holes drilled before going to paint. Notice the blue tape and pencil marks show us where the wires are so we don’t drill through them.

It’s July 2020, the year of the Pandemic, can it be possible that we now have the time to finish Peaches? The last few weeks we have been getting her ready to go to the painter. We finished building the door, dry fit the windows, side lights and struggled with the front side windows. My brother in law Frank was a body man for years before he became a tech guru and now my hero for helping me restore this old camper into the beauty she is today. The reason i bring up that he was a body man is because he didn’t like the window seals on the dreaded solid dinette front windows and he wanted to use an RV or automotive window seal. I don’t like that it is black considering that i am going to want to paint with Peach and Cream colors. But we have tested some vinyl and leather seat paint that is flexible so we are going to try to paint the seals. We also had the glass cut to fit the holes he cut so we could use those seals but in the end we decided to go with the plexiglass.

We had glass cut after making a pattern of our cut out but we decided in the end on using Plexiglass.

Below are some images from the door build. We had the original screen door and Frank built the new door.

Justin stops by to check it out.
It’s not in perfect condition but usable.
I was able to get this part new from a Midwest Glamper friend, Cheryl, and we put that in .
Justin is impressed.
If you see the original photos we only had one rear window on my camper when i bought it so that worked out fine when we changed the configuration and put a bathroom on this side.

We reused the jrail even though its in rough shape, i bought new ones but they aren’t the same shape and i just like the original look. Also used the old wheel well trim too. We have the emblems to put on and a few more inlet and outlet covers and the rear lights and license plate frame which should be done this week. Fingers crossed so we can finish and get to paint next week.
