Surprisingly, these two pictures don't look that different. I can assure you they ARE: latex paint scraped, new Zolatone applied, cabinets refinished... and the list goes on.

1976 Sovereign - Gutted and brought back!

1976 Sovereign center bath - completed gutted. Custom cabinets, deep freeze used as a refrigerator, all new LED lights, butcherblock countertops... only the best for our home! Thanks for all the help Airforums members - you made this possible!

We technically don't qualify...

for the contest since we're a silver cousin (and that's okay!)

Here are some of our before and after photos - fixed the rotten floor under the fresh water tank and put in a new cork floor and new sofa...
