Iíll have to fix that !

So yesterday I pressure tested the pex with water . After 24 hours all good with no leaks .

Today itís 80 in the shade so I got after the bath . I finally got the plastics cleaner . It is used for the plastic adhesive for paint . Itís what they use for plastic auto parts like the bumper. After the cleaning and rinse , I sprayed the adhesive permotor . Itís clear and flexible. I then sprayed some primer .

I had some paint mixed up to match the oven door . PPG nailed it for match . After the primer flashed I painted 3 wet coats on the bath parts . My shop is kinda dark where I paint . I got one sag but if you paint wet you get sags or runs sometime . No big dill , I will fix it with wet sanding and polish .

I never know how these pictures will be displayed but the gray color is the primer , the blue/green is the finished color . The other picture is the tools of mass confusion and my paint guns I used . Blue

I used a similar automotive paint designed for plastics. I don't have spray painting skills or equipment like you have; a local body shop painted my parts.

You picked a classic 60s color. It will keep your trailer vintage looking. My former 66 Trade Wind had bath parts in a teal green color. I like it.

And I like your "busy" shop. There have been a lot of projects completed there by the big fixer.

R&R over .work , work , work !

Well I got back from my two week camp out on the border. Great time and was beautiful. Put my bath in because I coundnít find my photos . Just sitting in place to find where to run drain piping . All in temporary with walls . Photos real grainy because of the light from window . Got it all figured out and will pull everything out today and do the pvc work . Then put it back in for the last time .
The DOM rock is from the movie Fandango. The big rig is not mine but MC is . I was next to the class a and this was our view . Blue ps I stood on my head for bath pictures.

Nice you took a break in the huge home state of yours. Someday we will visit there too.

I'm glad you added the PS. You mentioned you lost the photos of the bath and I just kinda guessed you forgot which way the bath fixture are supposed to go.

It takes me a while to make up a ABS drain line. Measure, find fittings, cut pipe, glue together, find it doesn't fit, start over. Oh well.

My back is better and I have resumed light duty work after my three weeks of "lost time accident" workman's comp case. Boss is sorta happy to have me back to work and out of the house.

Thanks David .

I got the drain lines on bath sink side done . Got all plastic and fiberglass parts in place for now . Will need to redrill all he mount against the rear cap as the dementions changed due to rise in flooring . All of the drains line up so I am happy . These photos should be better . Blue

The photos are much better. Thanks.

So what will you do with that big picture window in your bath? I know why Airstream did this. Wally insisted on a see through trailer for safer towing with just a rear view mirror inside the tow vehicle. But little thought was given to the "see in" part of that equation. The last thing I need is a big picture window in my bathroom. Campers close by would scream in horror if they caught a glimpse of me stepping out of the shower.

I am seriously considering blocking my big rear window. It does have a pull down shade, but it ain't the prettiest one in the store.

David

Slowly so slowly.

Still finishing up the bath . I needed to hook up wires for hot water heater and ran t stat wires with it . Still need to drill holes for copper gas lines and hook them up . But first I need to insulate and put on bottom pan . This will have to wait till end of April as I have another trip coming up .
Having ADD as bad as I do , needed to put heater in place to run my T stat wires so while Iím doing that I put the fridge in place which naturally made me install the fridge vent .
Had to cut a little of the bottom of the new vent . It is much thicker than the broken up original. Got in place and will chuck it before putting rivets in .
Oh boy , all this to get the bath in . Also found all my original 1/4 panels to be in to bad of condition to use but will make a good pattern.

Onward through the fog . Blue

These Airstreams are quick to gut, but slow to reassemble.

Your new fridge vent looks very cool. I reused my old thin cracked one. I fixed the cracks and feel it will route the bad combustion air out of the trailer. My new fridge has a little 12v fan that kicks on at 85f that will certainly help move air up and out.

I thought I was the only Forums member with ADD. I call it walking around "butt first". But first I'll do this, no that, oh yeah, but first that over there. It does mess a guy up now and then.

Hang in there, your on the BIG fix. Really big! Like 1000 hours big.

THATS what drove me nuts sometimes when we were doing the trailer! We'd get to a certain point where I'd think we were ready to do something forward. Then he'd say, no we have to do this and this and this and this first, THEN we can do that! Seemed to take forever until we finally got the wiring, plumbing, and walls back in.
Then it went faster!
