Few update pictures 1956 as f.c

Just a few pictures of the cabinet work going on in my 1956 AS.
Im starting on the 9th year, hoping to have it completed by the summer of 2011. A few thing still need to be done on the outside, but a lot of little things on the inside. Should have all the wood work cut and fitted in the next few weeks,then it all gets tore out sanded and finish coat before it goes back it for the last time. Man I can't wait to get to that point! Just finished, more or less, the kitchen face framing, and dinette framing. Will send those pictures in a few days.

I'm jealous. I just finished mine, and now wish I had taken the inside walls off. I was afraid, now I am going over in my head how hard it would be to take it all out again.

That will be nice and cozy when you finish. I must say, though, I would have lost interest long before 10 years worth of work. I just don't have the staying power with a project for that long. Great to see that you are creating such a beautiful piece of art. Can't wait 'till next year to see the finished project.

Nine Years has gone by fast in some respects. Before I started this one I had restored a 1963 A.S. it was a 90 percent restore, no outside sheet metal work and the frame was just fixed were needed. You can see a few pictures of that trailer by searching under Dan Clayton . That 1963 took me 6 years and over 2500 hours. Would have taken me longer, but changed jobs and took a year off between them and did nothing but work on the trailer for 4 to 5 hours a day. This trailer little different. Two younger kids, lots of their activities, and a heck of alot more golf!

Beautiful work, remember kids grow up fast so taking a little longer to finish the trailer is OK, since we live in Oregon hope to see it in person someday.

Was the wood in the dome from the outset? The rear roof is like with my Cruiser 54, in the middle a dragged metal practice he to the window?
Great work, compliment!

Dan, I agree, your work looks fantastic! You did all the wood on the walls and ceiling too, right? I love the end caps - did you do both of those as well? What wood did you use?

Chris
