lights.

http://vintagecampers.com/viewpart.php?partID=799

here's where I picked up the oval satin nickel 12 volt lights. made in America too if my memory is right. I found the shape and low profile perfect for the dinette area. you don't want to bump your head there. I also wanted switch so you could control everything individually when putting a kid to bed in the area and still use a reading light in my bed. check around as you might find them cheaper somewhere else perhaps? I actually bought an extra to keep it as a spare if I break one in the next 40 years of airstreaming. cheers. Ted.

here I just ran out to the shop and took two pics of the box

Oh if only I was allowed to go up there and help. I don't think my patients or boss would be happy if I left though. Drag it down to Blanco this weekend and let's knock some stuff out!

I need a break!

Did two screens and 1/2 of the insulation today. Dealt with Family type problems....then decided I need a break. Loaded up a Bubble and got this list out....The List: The Top 50 Barbecue Joints | Texas Monthly

PS You don't need a coat and tie at Stubbs' in Lubbock.

Have you ever thought of putting a hard rubber lining or other substance on the ribs to lessen the heat transfer. Maybe that sticky flashing stuff. Your ribs look dark in the picks, is that just an allusion or are they coated

more insulation and wiring tomorrow

Ted, the insulation is one layer of Prodex. Hoping not to become embroiled in the insulation arguments....you know, like tires, axles and batteries....I am now going with 2 inches of pink type modern insulation before the new skins and wiring.
What do you mean retired....under employed? I still do a full Citrus Grove operation in the Rio Grande Valley and a full Horse hay operation up here. Then there is the house stuff, the old car stuff, old airplane stuff, Typical paperwork stuff, maintenance of the place here (dumb, dumb dumb.....I have planted over 600 trees in the past three years during this draught and I have to hand water all survivors on a regular basis. I should retire!

ribs are coated

Ribs are coated with a rubberized coating....same one I use to seal all interior seams. Hows your Cloud doing?

Well, then, you ARE a machine! My husband, who is a vegetable farmer, is bushed when he gets home! He helps me out on his down time, though. That's a lot of trees to prune & water, that's for sure! We have friends who have citrus down in Naples, FL. Lots o work!

Tornado Safe Room

Two days of hiding inside so I am working insulation and wiring. Got everyone inside the Red Barn....out of the hail but, like all else, no real protection against the Tornados around here.

I was wondering how you survived the tornadoes, glad to hear you did.

Your work is moving along great! For insulation I'm still thinking of doing some of that spray on or paint on for the inside of the skins and then the Prodex/strips of foam board, I guess when I get to that point I'll decide then. (I'm also still considering the InsulShield Technology system that we use in the old cars; it works so well but is a little pricier.) I'm at the point on our Bubble where I must get the polishing done so I can seal the seams and then be free to work on the inside.

However, right now I'm having to meet an installation deadline for some of my drapery work -- Friday is the day; have the installer scheduled and can't wait to get this job (three rooms) installed so I can get on to fun things -- like working on our Bubble! Trouble is, the phone keeps ringing with more work, so I can't really see daylight to get on the Bubble again; not really complaining, but then...........

Also avoiding an argument, I am very pleased with using a second layer of prodex over the ribs as a thermal break. Too easy.
