I got mine mostly on the basis of looks As I am doing the interior in gray vinyl on the walls and then floor black white check and black counter tops.. SS and somewhat retro on the front.

Am also getting the "retro/metro" toaster from DeLonghi.

What can I say? I'm a sucker

My 51 had an original flathead engine w/ 3 speed. Had enough power to tow the Caravel, but alas I couldn't get myself to tow any distance w/ it. It probably could have done it, but if a water pump decided to leak a 1000 miles from home not alot of auto stores stock parts for flathead any more, go figure So now it has a small block Ford (what else?) w/ a auto trans. for reliability. It's in the shop getting a face lift over the winter. I'll post photos w/ the finished project.

I looked at the new micro wave unit's and that is what we are going to use. What brand one are you refering to here? And has anyone had any bad experiences w/ any brands?

As far as our bathroom. The original sink and shower pan, along w/ the lower walls of the bathroom were all painted w/ a green spackle spray on paint that almost all paint stores sell. I didn't spend alot of time on it, but when we tried to remove the paint, 1 it didn't come of easy and 2 it didn't look good underneath (possibly why it was painted) So thats really where the whole remodle idea came from. Now I just need to find a supplier for some copper sheets. I'll keep ya posted. Thanks for all the ideas.

The units I am talking about are made by Sharp. I have the larger unit and bought one for both my mother and my daughter. My step mother has a Sharp unit that is about 20 years old and won't hear of a replacement...None of us have had any difficulty with them. I like the convection feature as it functions similar to a regular oven as well as a microwave.

I can't do anymore until I get the walls finished. We have had so much damned rain here I have not been able to do much. In two weeks I am moving to a place where I can have the AS at the house instead of storage and having to bring it up to the house all the time to work on it. Giving myself till the end of march. Of course it was November, then December and then January!
