Nearing the finish line?

Posted by blogadm on July 27, 2020 in uncategorized |

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 […]

It has been a few years since my last post. Since then we have changed our minds on a few things. First and most noticeable will be that after all the shellac testing and talking about keeping it original, in the end, i didn’t like the color combo with my Peachy , Coral colors. So […]

Moving along…

Posted by blogadm on August 11, 2014 in Shasta Love |

  It is funny that just when you feel like you are really making great progress everything looks like this… We feel a great sense of accomplishment even if every piece of the camper is spread over 4 garage spaces.   The Vent was a little difficult to remove as it was painted with this […]
