Have I missed a lot? The description says flooring is going in! Are there re-runs?? I was hoping to find something like this. Thank you for the heads-up!

Sequoiacoast,

Only three more episodes to go. Regarding reruns, I assume so since the other ClassicRides shows are rerun. You will need to watch the schedule on ClassicRides.

Have watched it all. They sure make it look simple. Actually a very interesting show and although I didn't like the color at first, it's beginning to look pretty good inside. The floor went in this week. They went with cork, floating floor. Did a good job. Also re-flashed the windows and put some new hardware on to hold the door. I believe they put a new outside electric outlet too. Very interesting show.

I noticed on the show Friday night that they had already been messing with trying to polish the exterior some. Also noticed new Alcoa wheels and tires on it, even though he said at the end of the show that they were going to do that on the next episode. That trailer is in extreme need of new axles - but this makes me think they aren't going to bother. Forget about removing those chinsy track lights when towing - with running gear like that, he'll be popping rivet heads in no time.

I can't get over him using so much silicone on the exterior - around the clearance lights, water heater, and when installing the new rock guard. I thought this guy actually did research! From a distance, the paint job inside looks good, but up close, it looks like someone just haphazardly slapped it on.

I must say the countertops, woodwork, tambour and floor look great, though.

He's not afraid to use Scotch-Brite either. Hope he uses something else for the polishing.
