Maybe someone told my anxious bidder that you don't want to drive up an auction for 7 days out bidding every incremental increase. And then the guy who used "buy it now" to buy my side gaucho told me he bid my front gaucho up from $200 to $300 because he couldn't bear to let it go so cheap. I've got to thank him for that when I see him. I made $430 for both gauchos so that added a nice chunk to my budget.

Anyway, great progress on your interior. I can't wait to see pictures SOON. I worked on my design last night and I have been ordering materials. You can see the progress here:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...

Steve

Tim I bought the Cherry laminate from Sam's and have got the flooring installed and putting in the 1/4 round shoe molding now. Will take some pics when I get enough stuff out of the way so that you can see it. It went down reasonably easy, I did learn a few tricks after the fact.

Thanks for the help. I don't know why its not taking off like yours did. Probably because I removed a lot of the hardware and that the matress is not original. But that's ok. Anything is better than taking it to the dump.

There are 13 people watching it, but its so low now I don't think there will be a bid war

Thanks, I'll try and post some pictures later today. I have been checking your blog. I like that. I should have done one for mine...

Oooh.... I'd love to see some pictures. That is my next project coming up real soon. Any tricks you can let me know about would be great too.

As with most things on my trailer I have never done it before so it's going to be a learning experience.

Some photos...

Got my second coat of polyurathane on today...

Here are some pictures.

The first one shows the laminate I used on the left, and the bottom of the dinette table on the right.

The second picture shows the stained bench seats.... all too dark...

There is a peice of the pacific maple flooring laid next to it for comparison.

Another picture...

Here is a picture of the bottom of the new kitchen counter I am making. I did not stain it, just polyurathaned it.

Looks nice.... but won't be seen ;-(

Tee-Molding installation.

I'm getting ready to install the metal tee-molding.

I need a little help on getting it to turn the corners.

I made all the corners somewhat rounded, but the tee is solid on the molding so it looks like it would have to be notched somehow.

I was thinking of using some tin snips and cut a 'V' shape in the tee part that leads in and out of a turn. Does that sound like the right technique?

Just want to get an idea before I start cutting stuff up.

I cut out the 'T' to round the corners. It depends on the diameter of your curve, but the section I cut out from the back of mine was about 6".

Tim -
I did the same as Shari. I cut it out with an angle grinder. Haven't had a problem with it as long as you keep both edges where the T moulding is tight in the groove. Good luck.

So what you two are saying is you completely removed the tee from the entire radius of the curve?

Yep. I used a small handheld coping saw (I have it for jewelry making) the aluminum is real soft & easy to cut. It then bends pretty easily around the curve...no problem. MUCH easier than cutting a bunch of litte 'V's....

Yep - removed about an eight inch section with hand held angle grinder. Piece of cake.

Tim, It might make a little sense and worth a try to leave a small tab at the very center of the corner for extra support anyway.
