I bought my 1976 31" Sovereign International on June 24, 2010 about two miles from my home.




It's going to be a work in progress. I'll uncover, discover, and recover. It has some old leaks. I suspect the TV antenna and the skylights. I believe the leakage is minimal but I'll see.



We began by removing the living area builtins.


sofa out






Both sofas out along with the mickey mouse corner table and the finger pinch table.


Before removing the rotted floor sections under the window and by the door, I'll remove those nice blue floor tiles.

They appear to be original because the floor is like new under the tiles and the tiles go under the builtins. They come up like they were never glued with a heat gun.

The whole tile comes up in one piece. Unfortunately the glue stays down and stays sticky. Some comes up with Krud Kutter.




I removed the drapes. The end caps come off and there's a screw in the bottom track to remove and the drapes just run out the end.

The four tall cabinet ends are done, the faceframes are done and sanded, and the fit up is finished on the street side.

The frames were glued and screwed on a square up clamp table.

    Thanks! This phase is a LOT more fun than frame welding and tracking down leaks:-)

    We had a 5" rain in two hours and no leaks! I'm pretty happy!
