We tried to find a upholstery shop to recover our two chairs but after several estimates that were twice the cost of new chairs we gave up. We talked to the vendor of new chairs and thought about it but couldn't reach a decision. Finally decided to give it a try to reupholster them ourselves. This is the result.

They may not be perfect but the price was right and the new foam is very comfortable and the flamingos seem to approve.

I wanted the outside shower option on my new-to-me Excella I just got last week. It should look about like the one in this post:

It's not ultraleather which is a brand name but it is the same kind of material in a different brand.

As far as your barrel chair goes, you will have to talk to the Mrs. She did all the sewing. I did the foam work and assembled the pieces to the frame, in other words the easy stuff.

Last week - got a bunch of stuff in antisapation of getting on the road in 2 more weeks for three months. New air coil springs, rear air shock traverse pins and bushings, shocks for the Henschen tag wheels, front shocks all now installed and the big one, (I'm in the middle of install , hope to finish by mid week) a throtel body fuel injector system from Holley. If I get the low end of antisipated MPG increase, should pay back the system before I get back to S. Fl in the end of July or Aug.

Definitely post your MPG findings once your trip is over. There are distinct advantages to using a TBI over a carburetor and if it can be justified via cost savings that's the way to go.

Good luck!

Digital Antenna

My moho came with no roof dish so I added a digital antenna - anyone know if I can re-splice into the cable sticking up out of the roof? I've never messed with tv wires.. trip to radio shack I guess.

The cable sticking up out of the roof is coaxial. Pretty much any hardware store will have coax connectors and a simple tool that makes stripping the insulation easy. Google for instructions if they don't come with the tool. If your antenna also has coax cable you should be able to put a regular coax connector on the roof cable and buy an adaptor that connects the two cables.

That's what I was hoping - thanks for confirming - another bullet dodged.

Ok this has been here for a few weeks, but a BIG KUDOS to bkahler (Brad) for parting out the 345 and selling off items no longer available.
Believe I'm going to clean this as well as all other pieces. Why not do it right???
So new trim piece for door on Airstream.
Thanks again Brad!
