That bathroom looks awesome! Everything sure is coming together nicely.

BTW I have some similar complaining over here from my wife regarding the materials and fixtures as well. She suggested I should put all of new nice stuff in the house and recycle the old stuff from the house in to the AS....my reply...LOL no chance.

Grey tank install..

Ok, I didn't take any picture as I put this in. But when I build the cover for it I will take some pics.. The tank is "L" shape. Was a miss order but it fit and is just over 30 gallons..

I have 3 metal straps that hold it in place with bolts through the holes on the straps and the straps run through the big holes in the frame. The plumbing is piped in through the top of the floor into the tank. I cut out one bit of angle iron under the floor to put the tank in. The drain comes directly out of the side of the tank. And I had the local RV guy spin in the fittings.

The nice thing now is I can look at the tank, and when I can't see the water line I know it's more than half full. But my fresh tank is 40 gal. so when that runs out it's time to empty the grey...
The tank cost me $200... with the three spun on fittings.

And don't forget the new concrete I poured last week to put the AS on. That is nice... Keeps it level and better than the roadbase it was on before.

Jason, I have been following your remodeling of your 68. We got a 67 and the inside is completely trashed. It set in a field for 15 years with broken window and no cover on roof vent. All the wood has peeled and buckled. I love the bunk beds. The U-shaped eating area moved to the center is brillient. I am going to make it so it will be an oversize double bed. I am leaving the gaucho up front as that will also sleep two. I will probably leave the table up front incase we want to use it after the grandkids are sleeping. Our 69 has the L shape couch’s up front with pie shape table in the corner. The street side makes into the bed. Our grandkids are to big for the smaller seating area under the front window. I don't think I would like this setup in the 67.
You have taken great photos, thank you so much for taking the time to keep us informed. I may contact you when I get started on mine. First I have to gut the inside maybe this fall.

Ok, It's time to get back to finishing the old AS. Now we have 5 month old twin girls it makes my time even less. But it's gotta get done. We took them out last week end for one night. The twins sleep on the dinette, it works out great. Got all my plans for the cabinet doors and will start cutting them out today. I also have to pull the toilet as is was leaking water. Man that is hard to get to.

Will start posting picks as I go.

Ok, cabinet doors take longer than I thought to make. ( i mortised out the back side so they would sit a little flusher.) But I have all but six installed. I need some latches on the upper ones. I also decided to leave the darker wood of the old cabinet frames up as it adds some contrast. (to be honest I just don't have time to make new ones but there is nothing wrong with the old ones.)

I also need to put a little more marble down above the over, and make some shelves.

I also started striping and finished that yesterday except for the very top which i believe has no clear coat anyway but will put some stripper on to make sure.

I guess it time to buy the polishing stuff. I have decided not to go fro the mirror shine. but just a nice clean shine.

As you can also see. I need some upholstery. Need the wife to pick that out so I can get sewing.

Here are some pics of the striping. (of the AS) made it made a huge difference already. the rear shows some that is striped and some that isn't and the front has already been striped.

I used remove all 220 and only used just over 1 gallon to do the whole thing. Brushed it on and hosed it off. Came off no problem. Then hosed the clear coat into a pile and dumped in the trash.

I wonder if the polishing will be as easy.

I'm thinking of using the nuvite grade G6 the stuff that goes from course to medium. anyone try it?

Ok, was trying to figure out how to get the old Numbers of the AS. The stripper for the clear coat won't touch it. So I used my furniture stripper. They just came right off. It also works great on silicon. Just don't use it if you don't want the clear coat to come off.

Got my new vent covers on today and also the cover for the exhaust fan. I will post some pics tomorrow.

Ok, I ordered a new astrodome from inland RV as my old one was in bad shape as you can see from the pictures. The new one is tinted so it lets in a ton more light.

I can't believe the old one didn't blow apart going down the road. I was able to hit it in the middle and it basically crumbled.

As you can see from the pictures someone had tried to repair it by gluing and riveting part of a different dome on top of the original one. I am just not surprised anymore by what I find.
