'82 310 getting to the fun stuff

So it's been a little over a year since we purchased our 310. I've been working on the mechanicals and systems ever since and I'm happy to say it's coming along real well. We've been out a handful of times and just had a ball. All systems are up and running as designed with modern updates and modifications as I went. Logged everything and it's amazing how long the list of repairs has grown. The coach had good bones to start with so it's been a very worthy journey. Without the help of several people here on the forums I would have been really lost on several occasions. Smartstream, Keyair, Idroba, Wxbouy, Isuzusweet, Dakota, Mike Leary, Air Dog, and the list goes on and on.

FINALLY, I'm getting to a point where I can start on some fun stuff on the old and tired interior;
First thing was to refinish all the wood surfaces in the galley and bath.
The old finish was in pretty bad shape;

The old couch is gonna stay for now, will recover if we decide to keep it. But added some removable armrests;

It may sound a bit silly but just adding the armrests made a big difference in how comfy the couch is to sit on.
Got a million things to do on the interior but it sure is fun getting to these rather than all the behind the curtain systems.
