The laminate turned out really nice. Now to start on carpet. I picked up some remnants from lowes today that are a great match. We will update when I get it installed. Our other RV just sold so soon the 345 gets a roof over her and hopefully we will have enough left over for new upholstery.

Been a while since I updated this thread. Holidays have taken a lot of my time and my cold weather motivation isnít good! We did however sell our class c so funds were available for a couple of big ticket items. We decided that with Oklahoma getting so much hail the 345 needed a roof. Carolina airports does good work. Took these guys less than three hours to get her assembled.

Today I start on the bedroom remodel. After that’s complete I need to address a leaking head gasket. I can smell antifreeze in the exhaust and lots of extra condensation☹️. Good news is that moves my motor upgrades forward to this year. I plan the typical heads and intake combo but I’m seeking opinions on camshafts? The engine will remain low compression no more 8:5:1. Edelbrock heads and I take and it has the Banks exhaust already. I’m wanting to not loose to much mileage but increase my power some. I’m thinking a comp cam 260H? Upgrading to electric fans as well. I’ll maintain the clutch fan as a backup but hopefully I don’t have to hear it engaged so often!

Bedroom is almost finished. Just a quick coat of stain and repairs to some lighting. The pic of the TV stand is how I plan to have all cabinets in the cabin look. Hopefully before camping season but more likely next winters project.

Trying to remove some of the eighties feel. Wood grain cabinet pulls how was this ever a good idea!!! That being said the body lines of many eighties rides are just cool. Interiors and smog era engines not so much. Anyone know how to rotate pics when uploading from your phone? Last two replies Iíve had one pic messed up.

Your coach is looking good

Pictures being rotated 90 degrees is a real pain.

As for rotated pictures, unfortunately the only way I know of to get pictures right is to use a photo editing app to rotate the picture before you upload it.

Beautiful rig!

Is the exterior original, or redone? It looks great!

The outside was redone by the previous owner. He did an excellent job! He had it painted with a color that looks like aluminum until standing next to it. Nice Alcoa wheels as well. The awnings look to be original with only one rip in the largest one. He had basically worked his way through the appliances and the outside before we bought it. Lots of suspension upgrades as well. It was just what we were looking for, something that was usable and nice but not finished. We love to make things our own!

I received my couch and dinette from the upholstery shop last week. This allowed me to finish my carpeting in the living area. I included a before pic of the seats in the back of the parts hauler. We still havenít done the captains chairs. Looking at all kinds of options for replacements.

Before the seats arrived I worked hard to get all the cabinets refinished. I removed all hardware and doors and painted the main cabin with one step Minwax, espresso was the color. We wanted more modern but still classic. We went back with chrome pulls throughout. The bathroom and bedroom area is still the original hickory. I restained with a pecan color that was almost exact to the original. Chrome pulls here as well. The top left pic is a good comparison of before and after. Same with the bottom two. Any area that had cutouts that didnít fit were corrected. Aluminum was used for any vents or air intakes for furnaces wherever possible. I also had to rebuild some drawers that were aiming apart from years of use.

I also had some trouble with the original outlets coming apart inside and needing replaced. Not all are done yet but after what I found here I think all should be replaced.

As with all rebuilds with every thing that is replaced more old and worn items come to light. The plastic parts on this unit were in sad shape. I used a product called ColorBond to bring them back to life. I cleaned all with the plastic parts cleaner they provided and then lacquer thinner. They turned out beautiful.
