Thumbs up Always good to look at where you started from!

Lots of great work Jav! Keep it up! You'll be camping in a few months! I do the same thing sometimes, look at a picture like this, then look at one like this, and say dang!

@ Sandy Uh if I got another trailer my wife would have me committed. I tested the water on another trailer and didnt go so well. Too soon?
@ Don if you need some better pics have a look at my blog. I can also email you. The lift off isn't that hard, the reunion thats a bit harder. favorite quote on the subject. "Sometimes you eat the bear, and smometimes..well the bear, she eats you."
@Lance Damn boy looks like you can eat off that floor! I am going to West Marine this weekend to look at floor paint now, thanks.

Got two more vent covers on yesterday. Also I picked up two scaffolding ladders cheap on Craigslist yesterday. They will come in handy with a few projects on my rig and around the house!

Oh forgot to mention that I am pre wireing a solar fridge vent fan. I helps the fridge to cool down without burning up juice.

Good idea on the solar powered fan but it looks like it is wired to run continuously. How long will it last and is it easy to replace?

It isn't that hard to replace. The fan itself mounts behind the fridge and you can disconnect it from the panel. Running continuously shouldn't be a problem, actually I believe it helps the fridge to stay cool and not work as hard.

Got a late start today but got some bs work out of the way. Stripped the paint off the rub rails, cleaned, drilled new holes for all the molding and installed with clecoes. Removed the rest of the emblems. And made a new fresh water fill port.
Hope to get the a/c unit off the top of the trailer so I can see what needs to be done next. It is always worse than you think.

"It is always worse than you think."
You got that right! And every once in a while fun! The fun part takes a while though! Your progress is looking good. I though I would be having fun now but only because we are in sight of the end, I am kind of tired of the curved walls but starting to get better at scribeing the cabinets to fit. I still think about how I will do the next one??
Always look forward to your updates!

Haha its a bit absurd sometimes with the amount of detail you find yourself facing sometimes.Im a bit far off from fun but Im trying to bust some ass so I can take her out( even just around the block would do).
Im going to check out your progress right after I pick up some Mexican food
