Thumbs up Slow but...

Things have been sorta quiet here lately...
(My aching tooth moved upfront in the list of priorities. )
I've gathered together numerous parts for upcoming projects. Just waiting for the WX to clear up`!
  • 1. Painting needs to be finis in the rear..
    2.Installing the new Astrodome vent with the two new vent operators.
    (Thanks to both; Inlandrv, and Airstreamdream, for coming thru on the parts we needed for this project)
    3.Replacing all street-side windows, and one kitchen window.
    4.Installing the new custom made screens for all the windows
    5.Refinishing the cabinet's surface.
    6.Replacement of all wall mounted lights with the new ones.
    (Converting the new wall mounted light fixtures from 120V to 12V)
    7.Installing the new water pump, and checking the water system for leaks, etc.
    8.Finis rebuilding the Magic Chef stove.
    9. Checking out the hot water heater system.
    10.Checking out the LPG system.
    11.Building and installing the new furniture.
    12. Making repairs, and replacing all compartments locks.
    13.Polishing the moon hubcaps. (Yep, I have both of the originals`! )
    14.Installing the new cork flooring~
    15.Making all new curtains for the windows.
    16.Refinishing the surface of the bathroom's tub, sink, etc.
    The list goes on and on.... New axel, tires, brakes, wheel bearings, cleaning all surface rust, and painting of it.
    Somewhere, in all of this, the "FINIAL Project" will be the Polishing project~
I have some thoughts on the new Astrodome replacement project to share~
Followed by the window replacement..
ciao

Ok, Now you have me dreaming about ours again. It got put on hold last fall when I had some heath issues. Then we got the bright idea we wanted to move and needed to work on the house to get it ready for market. So I'm just finishing up a bath remodel and bed room redo including new ceramic tile floor, 120ft of base board, 50ft of window trim, 3 new doors, new bifolds for the closet. YEEE HAAA. With some luck I will have this wrapped up this weekend.

The Airstream has got some use. With the inside of the Airstream in my garage I needed a place to paint the trim. a 22ft empty airstream makes a nice shady place to paint.

Next weekend I work on this leak we can't seem to find. Once I can get it dry inside then I can strip the babyblue paint and go back to white.

Wow!!

Like, wow, Vern, I am afraid to even start writing my list!

We are now focused on building a shed to protect the A/S's delicate top from falling limbs in our tree-ful yard. For a reason neither of us is willing to admit, this shed is about 40 ft long. Neither of us admits the possibility of desire for a SECOND A/S, certainly not the teeny little '49 that I still haven't positively ID'd, no - no - not THAT one! Yet we are making this shed 40 ft long to house our little Trade Wind.

I want to know from one of you, Vern, Aaron, somebody on this thread:

How do you work on the top? One of the features of our shed is rafters on which we will be able to lie and reach stuff on the roof. Right now we have a leak in the roof exhaust fan and our temporary fix is a tarp. How DO you work on the roof without some structure to support yourself? I assume that I can't rest a ladder on it and lean on it, I assume I will warp it.

??

And Vern, that is a GREAT paint job!

Connie

Quick question: what water pump did you buy for the GT? I need a new one for our '66 Safari. Also curious what led you to choose the one you did. Thanks!

Connie,

when we start to work on roof projects, I intend to use the scaffold we bought for a house porch project last year. It's an adjustable 5' or 6' long scaffold from Bil-Jax, that you can raise from 4" to 5' in 2" increments. Really handy and come with wheels that lock. The whole unit runs about $300 and you can get extra sections. Amazon sells it, but you may have a local ladder supply.

John

scaffold or rafters

So John,

You have the same idea that I have. We will use the rafters. I am still wondering if it takes as much time/money as you and I are spending? or is there some other way to access the roof?

Connie

We already had the scaffold, and let me tell you, once we started using it, we couldn't imagine getting by without it. For working or painting ceilings, working high up, or any job where you need to be off of the ground, but have a range of motion, it's awesome. You don't have to reposition it as often as a ladder, you can just walk side to side, and you stand on the platform, not a rung.

John

AYSTRM2,
The PO had purchased a SHURflo water pump, and he just never got around to installing it.
So, that's what I plan to install after I check the system out first...
(This was found inside of a cabinet.)
I haven't done any research yet to determine if it's the right one for the job.
My thoughts are:
Since it's free, and the same brand as the one in my 84 A/S, I'm willing to give it a try.
Connie,
Thanks for the nice remarks concerning the outcome of the painting efforts.
I took special care took keep the paint from running, and at the same time, seamless in appearance~
Thanks again~
ciao

New Astrodome~

This is one project I'm not looking forward to.
The PO really did a temporary job on this~`
I will first attempt to do this from the inside but, feel the urge to get up on top just to make sure he didn't lay any minefields for me..
You ever have those day>???
These are the new 'vent operators' we picked up from Inlandrv..
Nice~!!
I have just one original operator, if anyone has a need for..Pm me~!

Serious question`

Original Saniware toilet question~
In looking in the rear end compartment of the 64GT, I discovered the Saniware toilet has a 12V motor mated to the rear of the toilet bowl..
Does anyone have a clue as to just what this used for? It was just sitting there lose in the opening of the cover that it feed thru..Appears to be in good working condition except for the rust on the enclosure cover~
I've enclosed some pictures to make it easier to see..
Thanks again for any help~!
I know..when all else fails, just pull the #*%!~ handle..lmao
ciao
