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