That looks great, G!

I'd make sure those drawer sliders have good detents to stay closed when traveling.

Where's the dining table?

You're going to have to upgrade the original Motorola speakers to match this absolutely quality job!

2air',

The painters are mixing everything they are putting on with a bonding agent (007) I think is what it's called...get it???...

No zolotone...

I will get all the details from them and post it on my cabinet thread...

New Cabinets in our 75 Sovereign!

Greetings,

Thank-you for posting these. This is a real inspiration for what I'd like to do with my 75, 29 ft, Ambassador. What do you think the difference in weight might be old versus new cabinets? I hope you continue posting photos of your work. Thanks again.

Todd

How did I miss this thread earlier!?!

Brad and I were lucky enough to see this project in person in the creation phase (about the same stage as the earlier pics Gene posted). He is absolutely right about his cabinetry guy--he does EXCELLENT work! The fit was great and proportions were right. It looked very professional and the finish-grade wood was so nice we begged him to stain it instead of covering it with paint! Ah, but to each his own...

I'll bet you are excited, Gene! Please post pics as the process continues! I can't wait to see the final version. You will have to call it Van Gogh (cara-van go, ha ha!) when it is complete because it WILL be a masterpiece.

Susan

Thanks 76...can't wait to see your unit in Branson...seems like we will have several 70's models there...

They have the doors painted at their warehouse...hopefully that will start the walls and ceiling the first of this coming week.
