I need a distraction from the windows for a couple of days, so I am planning next winters projects. We are going to travel quite a bit this summer in both the 325LE, and the 34 Classic S/O. I am planning various upgrades to the 325 including washer/dryer ( I already plumbed for it) dishwasher, under the microwave, new 2000 watt inverter under the oven. The 390XL is going up for sale, only 13,000 miles on it...like the Classic better. I really want a 345,350 or 370. I look once a week on various websites. I am also planning a rear end gear swap for the Dana 80, rather than go with a gear vendor overdrive or a TH700R4 I am thinking of replacing the stock 4.63 gears with 4.11 or 3.73's. I'm running about 3240 RPM @ 65 MPH. 4.11 should run around 2900 and 3.73's should run around 2600...might be to low. Has anybody done a rear end gear swap ???

This last weekend was not very productive. I was only able to finish the front passenger sliding window. Although it is completely done including the smaller weep hole covers, it is apparent to me that finishing the other right side windows is going to push this stage of restoration into May. Unless I can figure how to do this in a more timely fashion the left side windows are going to have to wait until next winter. The trim replacement of the windows is so far the most labor intensive job I have done other than the water pump. During my breaks I was able to replace the lighted license plate holder, remove and clean all the taillight/back-up lenses, replace one scarelight lense on the port side that was all melted. Still working on the door hinges, replacing all interior hinge hardware as well (6 bolts/washers/lock washers/nuts) I replaced the original doorbell with a new two-tone doorbell, the original was two-tone but one coil was burnt out.

Well today is Sunday April 12, I finished 3 of the 10 windows. If anyone has done a complete window trim replacement they know what is involved. Extremely time consuming ! In between the windows I finished 4 of the 6 door hinge bolts. I also mounted the new air reel into the right rear storage compartment. Next Sunday I really want to get it out of the shop and pressure wash it. I have a few other things on my list to finish before our camping season starts and I already have a major list for upgrades during next winter. I will try to finish the rest of the windows before Memorial Day weekend but it is going to have to be one at a time.Click image for larger version

Jeeez !!!!! After seeing what happened to Mayco going to CO. Makes me wonder....kind of creepy ! I think I'm going to order those Moog ball joints and do all 4. I still think there is more to that story but time will tell.

So as you guys were enjoying your rendezvous remember I was STILL working on my windows. Three weekends left till Memorial Day weekend...kick off for the summer for us... No heavy work scheduled for the summer. Still have to get a good road test under my belt... I don't want the first camping weekend to be it. Driver's sliding window done as is the right rear bedroom slider. Also took a break between windows to re-wire and re-lense the porch light. And P.S. Thanks for the idea !Click image for larger version
