Have to thank mom for these.. my parents stopped in on their vacation to help out and visit kids. The result was new curtains for the rear and central divider. What would we do without mom! We reused the original curtain clips but found two cracked.. nice to then discover they can be picked up at the dealer for 35 cents each.

No wood work is safe now.. the rear bedroom has been dis assembled and now has three coats of primer as of 11:30 tonight. I have been finding some bleed through of the oak stain maybe due to something the previous owner applied to the wood. It has become more work but with sanding between coats the wood grain is really minimized. Paintbig out the wood will probably picss off the traditionalists but I plan to use this, Iím done with oak cabinetry, and feed back from women touring it so far is more white paint the better.. I figure we are on the right track for resale if there is a women in the equation on the buyers side.

Also pulled out the old bedroom factory TV mount and I am returning that to a flat wall. More work relocating the rear thermostat and light switch. Iím planning on rebuilding the console above the diver/passenger to accommodate a 32Ē TV so Iím thinking no TV in the rear... I think.. probably..

My thoughts are
1. Luxury is relative and really just a state of mind
2. many things come in and out of fashion, and if I paint everything white in another decade or two it'll be tacky and dated again, whereas the original finish will have plodded further towards being cool and retro.

But if it makes the women in your life happy it's definitely a good thing
