Looks really nice Toastie.

My insulation is in along with my flooring, and I look forward to getting to the point you are at.

Here is a before and after picture of the front cabinet, the old was wood. Once all the interior panels are on will compound and bring to a mirror image.

Looking really good, Toastie!

My overheads run most of the streetside. Just clecoed them back up yesterday. I've been going back and forth between polishing those original cabinets or making new out of birch, but I think I'm leaning the way you're going. Are you planning original doors or something else?

cheers,
steve

Here's a picture of my street side, the door's will be the sliding type. I wired all overheads for led rope lighting. Since there are 4 overheads, the wife is looking at going with stain leaded glass representing the 4 seasons, winter, spring, summer and fall.

Sounds like a really good idea and should look great with led backlighting.

Decided to go with a Suburban SW6DE. This water heater will operate on both gas or electricity and has electronic ignition. In the pictures you can see where I'm headed with this, there is no way that I'm cutting a large hole for the hot water heater. My exhaust will behind the licenses plate with fresh air coming up from the bottom.

That is a very interesting approach to mounting your water heater. I hope the exhaust isn't hot enough to melt the paint on your license plate. Will you be mounting it a little away from the body?

Answered my own question. Yours looked so good in the pics of your hot water heater plan, that I went ahead and pulled mine off and hit it with some polish. I had no idea it would clean up that nice.
