The whole project is looking good. It appears that you started with a trailer that was in fairly good condition. Your workmanship is impressive.
Great job.

Been a busy summer working. Am looking forward to getting back on the SS. I will update with a few things I did this summer but it really wasn't much. I hope to have her done this this year.

Quick update....

Countertops are in. Waterheater, sinks, thetford residential toilet, built a desk with a stow away table, installed propane lines....almost there!

Still to go...backsplash, sofa cushions, and a bunch of trim work. And then to continue exterior polishing. Shes going to shine up nice.

Couple more pics. The chair is an early 60s Pagholz from west germany. Restored two of them for the ss. Look great with the desk and table.

You a doing a great job. I love the chair. Does the table swing around to stow away?

Finally done inside. Starting the polishing. 53 years of buildup.... you don't realize how long 32 feet is until you start this phase....

Looking good! I always like to ask what people are using to polish. Wanna share your secret?

Thanks! Am pleased with it so far and this is just the cutting stage. Using the polishing compound bricks. Only using the brown for this first part....

The picture with the camera is the reflection in the side of what I have been working on.

Can't wait to see what it looks like after the next stage!

Slowly but surely...

This gets really boring after about 40 hours...

I've heard and read 250-hours. And about 80-hours annually to keep it up. Which is why I'd paint one over polishing. Agreed about the size . . anything on mine seems double or more what guys with 22's seem to encounter.

Great choice on chairs. Upright or slumped I know I'd be comfortable on those!!
