"Karma" to you for helping Chris out.

I was watching "Outrageous Kitchens" on HGTV last weekend. In one $100,000+ kitchen, they featured the built-in blender. Yep, an Newtone. OK, it was a new one. At least it didn't look like it had been salvaged from an Airstream.

Thanks Dean. I have no attachments for the Food Center, but am trying to restore this '79 to original (more or less). See pic of new counter top installation. So if you were going to trash them I would love to have them!
I recently pulled the control knobs off the old Domenic RM100 refer and sent them to an Argosy owner in need of them. This is a great support group.

Dean, I don't think I would ever use those. But much thanks anyway. What I better try to find is a blender (daiquiri maker!)

Hi Chris, that's ok, I couldn't imagine ever using those myself!

I ordered a new fresh water tank from Inca today. If the old tank doesn't leak, which I don't think it does, I'm going to use it for an extra gray water tank when we go to Burning Man. I'll set it on my flat trailer.

Yeah, I have all those puppies, too...never used them more than once, but it was just to use them because...well, they were there and so was I...Wanna talk about Kirby Vacuum attachments?...I think I have most of the stains off the ceiling, but that might be age fade...how many of the working class can say "well, I vacuumed my ceiling today"? OH, wait, I'm retired...

Wow!, I'm rich, it's the same unit we have. Never use it, since we like our Margaritas on the rocks.

Upholstery Costs...

While having the windshield in my truck replaced this morning, I walked around the corner to an automotive upholstery shop. I showed the owner a couple of pics of my jack knife sofa and the two barrel chairs. $4000-4400 to redo! Well it is the Bay Area, I was dressed too nice and he figured out it was an Airstream. I was hoping around $2000-2500, but even that is too expensive right now. Sewing lessons are in my future!

I'm the lucky recipient of Chris' RM100 refer knobs...I'll 2nd his comment about the great support from this group (Chris - thanks again!)

Upholstery estimate...

I stopped in at another upholstery shop in town and got an estimate of $1300 for labor for the couch and two barrel chairs and about $650 for the material that I like (18 yards). This sounds darn good to me. The guy has been in town as long as I have and his work looks good!

Sounds like a good price.

Don't forget all the other bits like cabinet end pieces and the wall pieces by the sofa and the bed.

Cabinet ends are already done, but I do have those magazine compartments behind the barrel chairs!
