Laminated the new countertops & set them in place. Also rebuilt the top of the credenza since the plywood was wasted from being subjected to a leaky window.

Oh, and I was thinking about relocating the toilet for a better view. What do you think?

Lookin' good, Tom. I'm guessing you might not have too many guests asking to use your toilet!

Why the big hole in the countertop? I can see a stovetop going there, but what else?

Also, I like your flooring, I'm always looking for ideas on what goes best with the dark cabinets. Is it sheet vinyl?

Thanks Stephanie! Actually the three-burner cooktop is the only thing that goes in that hole. I thought briefly about rebuilding the cabinet, and just going with a two-burner, but could not afford the time involved.

I have read a noted guru here on the forum time and again express the perils of using sheet vinyl in an Airstream. What you are looking at is Peruvian quartz-stone considered for use by NASA in the Space Station due to it's low weight. Thanks to modern techniques, it can now be quarried in 12 foot rolls like sheet vinyl

What?!? You don't believe me?
Tom

Oooooo, NASA - I LIKE that

Actually, I already have wall to wall sheet vinyl, and since I am so lazy I don't want to pull all the furniture out to do it right, I am seriously considering just doing the walking areas with another sheet right on top of the old. The one I have has obviously held up just fine for many years, judging by the outdated pattern.

I plated over the old antenna spot on a friends trailer and sealed the refer vent before the Hurricane came.

What did you get done?

Not an Airstream, but lifts on 4 air cylinders. 1984 Kelmark GT body, Mid Engineering chassis with 402 Chevy motor. It was all kinds of fun figuring out how to do this, then making the parts to fit. Glad this part is finished.

402 in a bug pan in a car under 2500 lb......That will make for some entertainment!

It's even better than that. Tube framed, it looks like a go cart on steroids with the body off.
