Polishing Tub

We will have to wait about a week to be able to polish the tub, rain has slowed us down, allowing time for this update. I want to let gelcoat cure fully before finish sanding and polish

Great Job - Awsome Documentation!!!

David and Dianne:

What a great thread.

Make sure to reserve a spot for Blanco.

You should call for a "Completion Rally" in the fall to celebrate all of your work.

Thanks to Top and "Bob the Airplane Guy" for help rendered.

Are you ready to lease Dianne out hourly of by the day for Vintage work?

Can't wait to see it in person.

Door Treatment

Redo door, we laminated a sheet of quarter inch plywood to door, since the original finish could not be redone. New plywood finishes much better.

Door Edge Treatment

New closet door build and edge detail, used three quarter inch plywood and routed edges to come up with the original step shape on edges and Diana found a painted edge color that matched well with stain. The painted edge is what was originally done on our Airstream and I did not want to attempt to install edge binding on the step detail edge.
