I did the same without adjustable arms. Mistake!! Oh well. I went with black captains to break it up. When I replace the carpet with a different color floor it will look good. The upgraded foam is great. I only did it on driver. All my friends that ride are partying in the back. They love the built in margarita machine. Haha. I tell them it's for shakes. Lol

Yes I did the ultra leather, everybody claims it holds up well and is easy to clean. I also went with the light color because I've been burnt too many times on black seats in the hot sun. If it's cold I'll turn on the seat warmers.

I got the hr foam in both seats to keep the wife happy. I did add the 6 way power base on the drivers seat to help to old bones when they get sore in one spot. I do have adjustable armrests on the smarts and really like them again just to change things up when I get sore, so I added them.

Where do I get the margarita machine?

Cheers, Dan

Captains Chair Laptop Table

This what I did in the CLIPPER to hold the laptop so I can use the bigscreen GPS with Streets/Trips when travelling alone or when the navigator is asleep. I have a dash mounted GPS with a 4.3" screen, but the big screen is real nice to be able to enlarge the map. The table swings to the rear under the armrest when not in use, or can be lifted off and stored in the basement if not wanted.
Sorry about the mess but I was still working on mods. To the rear of the seatbelt is the CB mount and mike holder, which includes a FM/weather/emergency scanner just under the armrest pivot. Included in this mount is a isle light, and a 12V power plug. I have since ran a speaker wire to this mount so that I can plug the CB or laptop into the main overhead speakers to better hear the instructions. This is all anchored to the seat base, so that the seat still swings and reclines as designed. I have since mounted a leather pouch at the base of the laptop table to cover the mount and hold pens and small tools. I've had this now for over a year and never remove the table as it swings out of the way with lots of room to get around it. Only remove it when I have to work on the dash or in that corner.

Here are some more pics. Before and after. Disregard the floor and runners. I just got it back from upholster. He did the sofa and the dinette. So all upholstery is done. Now I have to figure out flooring, and curtains. Does it ever end??? Lol.

Went with all vinyl. You can drop crumbs and spill in it now. No stains it can all be wiped up and vacuumed. Lol. It is made to be used, but not abused. I am very happy with the way it has been coming along.

88 345

Here are a few pictures of my 1988 345. Some were from when I first looked at it, others are after the full detail job I've been slowly giving the whole rig. I love this big ol' girl, getting ready to go to Alumapalooza and planning a few stops along the way. That will be my second big trip in her since the purchase last November. I am living fulltime in it with my two dogs but I've been spending most every dime I get on fixing it up and buying essentials for a life on the road. I also need to sell off a lot of belongings, if I would just do that then I could probably afford the stuff I need to buy! Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the photos.

You should like this one as well then... Kirby loves using the MacBook, I just have to make sure the campground has WiFi... Plus a few pics from my trip island hopping across the Outer Banks of NC, Harleys in tow. Thanks for the comments!
