First day of demolition!

We are renovating my 1968 Silver Streak, Continental Rocket. First day of demolition. Fridge and one bed out. Revealing a lovely gold flecked disco linoleum. We will see home much we get done next weekend!

Thanks for posting, please keep it up. It will be interesting to watch a resto on a Silver Streak.

Have fun! We helped to demo a friend's early 1970's Sovereign this past Labor Day weekend and had a great time. Make sure you use your masks and be prepared for the foulest "eau de mouse piss" you will even encounter once you start to take out the inside walls and then the belly pan. We also learned a lot about how these things are put together, some good and some not so good!

2nd weekend, before the weather turns too cold again! I don't know why it keeps posting my pictures sideways.

Apparently Apple devices (iPhones, iPads) are prone to the sideways orientation. I find that if I check the orientation in Preview before uploading that I have abetter chance of getting it right.

Don't forget that you can take the trailer out on trips before you get finished! You Montana types have that white stuff on the ground that I've heard about, but if it clears up, get that camping gear out and go! It doesn't need to get done before having fun! Taking trips as I am working on my project has really helped me to edit my designs, dream of future mods, and work out colors and materials.

A tip: pack extra refreshments, these design meetings can deplete supplies rather quickly, I've found!

Good idea! But I'll have to wait for heat and water!

Yes I do, due to the fact that they are rotted and busted. My doors measure 12x24 on the freezer and 24x42 on the frig door. Can you measure yours to see if they match? If so will you sell them and how much? I might pay an arm and a leg for shipping but I can't find just the door anywhere.

I will measure this weekend. The project is not on my property. I will sell them to you for whatever you think is fair plus shipping.

Ok thank you. I've got my fingers crossed that they're the same size. I'll wait to hear back from you.
