Hey Rob and Shari,
Wow, nice work on Maxwell! My wife and I are just getting started with Mabel, another 1964
Globetrotter. Mabel has had a rougher life than Maxwell, and needs a lot of work, including on her utilities.
The thought makes me weary sometimes, especially considering that a couple of years ago I did work on Betty, a 1974 Overlander. I had her just the way I wanted her when we rolled her on I-80 on the way to Burning Man last year. Fortunately our landing was soft and nobody was hurt.
Anyway, I like some of your ideas and may end up drawing inspiration from them. I will document the progress. Pics to come!
