Looking good, it's a shame that your deal on the solid rivets fell apart. Why don't you just swing by my place and we can shoot a couple rows of 3/16's solids in it, it will only take a few minutes.

Whew

Tonights progress. Tightened up the bolts for the front separation plate, added insulation, riveted in the front panels (that was no fun!), installed the curtain tracks, hooked up the charging system and placed the sofa. The sofa arm rests are garbage so they will take some fab work - I'm gonna try someting different and see how it goes.

Now to the bathroom

Hi Ho,

Excellent work and I know not only you but all those who have had opportunity to read and especially see the work you have done have also learned a lot. Good luck on the bathroom and then sit back and have a well earned libation! Oh, cannot forget your wife - one for her too.

Vern, that is one helluva job you've done. It's a shame that I lived in a townhouse, when I was stationed in Maryland...I would have loved to have redone our Sovereign the way you did yours, that way I would have been satisfied that it was done right...as it stands, I'll be taking care of separation in ours, although ours is in the rear.

Keep up the good work, it's motivating!

One down

Sit back, close your eyes and visualize a pair of 17' Airstreams, not a single 34'...

The first one is done and the second one isn't as bad...

Nope, that doesn't help at all

The ole ice pick fooled me on this one... I checked the rear compartment and it was solid. Until we pulled the bed and carpet and found aluminum on the floor...crazy previous repairs. The really wacky parts are the attempted sealing method by caulking the interior skin to the ribs and the use of expanding wing nuts to clamp the joint.

This does however shows signs of somebody familar with Airstream construction.

Today was supposed to be a simple day. Patch the bathroom floor and install the rest of the vinyl planks but noooo, yesterdays discovery of rotten floor in the bedroom tossed me a curve. I did get the bath patched and the started on the bedroom. The bad area was cut out, the c channel, cleaned out and new wood cut to size (I'm glad I kept the pattern from the front - it fit the rear!) and varnished.

Mrs. HiHo has spent the day sewing and installing new cloth on the soft panels for the bedroom, also a full day

Tomorrow will be POR15 the frame, insulation and bolt in the sections...simple huh?

1, 2, 3, floor

Today started with POR 15 on the exposed 1.5 feet of rear frame, insulation and insertion of the floor parts that were cut and sealed yesterday. Vinyl flooring has now been installed all the way to the bedroom with the exception of the bath. It's getting ceramic tile. I've had good luck installing it with Liquid Nails and grouting with (NO - DON'T SAY IT!) Silicone !

I also took a swipe at the gross looking decals. The clear coat that was sprayed over the stripes was peeling and looked horrible. By using a scotch brite pad, lots of water and STAYING OFF THE ALUMINUM, the stripes cleaned up ok.

Whew, long weekend. Back to the office tomorrow for some rest.

Not much progress except getting all of the bedroom interior skins installed, cleaned and ready for the new soft sections that Mrs. HiHo has completed. Tomorrow I hope to get the flooring down, the bed and the night stands installed. I'm not done with the interior but I can smell it from here .

Ta Daaaa!

Tonight we got the flooring down and the bedroom assembled in 3 hours flat. The rotten floor thread is getting close to wrapping up .

On to the bathroom, thank goodness it's only 24" X 36"...

Where did the past week go? Not much visible progress but there were still things to be done. A water system test found a cracked polybutal "T" under the sink - that's this afternoons project . Saturday was spent rempving old sealant and re sealing the front cap and the lower beltline. The 1/4 round is now installed. A grand plan of repacking the wheel bearings went off track when the local supplier for seals was closed on Saturday.

The only thing to show for all of those efforts is the ceramic tile in the bath. Cutting and placing the tile did take 3 days, the diamond saw blade died and I could only glue one row to the wall at a time. It's glued down and waiting for the silicone grout.

Time to order a new toilet.

Grrrr!

Let me say - Me and Plummin'- we don't see eye to eye...

The stupid little broken gray "T" cost me 3 trips to Home Depot, 2 trips to Lowes and close to $40 in brass and hose.

I don't think I like PolyButal piping...

We did get the Levlor blinds installed in the kitchen and bath

Still waiting on the glue to cure under the tiles before the final sealing.
