Sure thing Dave, will put you on the list.

Hey Peter, I remember that now. We need to be on the lookout for some new "Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers"!
I call them that because a Baby Buggy is about all that can be pushed with these before there is damage to the bumpers!!!

Here is the front bumpers off while I do the upgrade and polish everything up.
Much worse than the rear bumpers!

Upper Cabinets

This is what I did to my fronts due to the cracks I had makes it look a little better and matches my interior seating. Used luan, cushion backing pad and vinyl.

Re-core Radiator

A little winter project to ck out the radiator. No Good!

I had the lower banana center section off to do a little repair, and with a small leak of coolant, decided to take a closer look!

After getting to the radiator, found out why I was having problems keeping the temperature in check.
Looks bad from the outside, and inside of the radiator!

New Flow Kooler water pump, new hoses and belts, 6 blade fan, ACD fan clutch and all cleaned up ready to install a re-cored radiator after our local shop gets er done.

Is it just me or have others noticed, how clean and freshly painted Chris's project always look? That guy puts me to shame, by the time I get everything lined up to install, the last thing I worry about is painting a little rusted metal. But no, not Chris.

Here you go. Peter and I have used this fan. You have to clean up the powder coat on the ID, and and a tad more to fit the fan clutch. Attachment 409820

Hey Peter!

I like to clean it up as much as I can when I can.
Just a bad habit!?

The fan replacement on my 350, cut down on fan roar tremendously. I think my old 5 blade was bent.

While I had the rear bumper off and doing all that work, I fixed the license plate plastic surround. A little MEK and a lot of patience, was able to get it looking a little bit better!
I also removed the steel nut plates in the aluminum plate and put in aluminum Rivnuts, so no more rusting. Not my best paint job, but ok. LED lights as well.

Got the front bumper back on, all polished up and some repair to the banana wrap.
Now waiting on the radiator to get it all back together!

I wish the radiator was in as good shape as the old radiator hoses!

That's wat I was thinking Peter when I took them off. Still very flexible, and still in very good condition. Was thinking that they had been replaced until I cleaned them up and seen the date!

New ones gonging on anyway!

New Pantry

Got to thinking of the area where the accordion door is/was, that we have never used! Using this area and some of the closet, I was thinking that I could get the wife some more accessible storage.

Used a pantry slide that is 24" full extension and rated for 175 lbs. The 6 shelfs are 4 3/8" wide, the 4 lower are 30" deep and the the top 2 are 24" deep.

When you pull it out, LED lights come on for each shelf.

If you need privacy, you can just open the doors to the closets!

Also found some extra storage under the left closet, with raising the closet floor, and installing a door! Thanks Peter!

I am not sure, how you were able to mount the tracks for that system, without taking the fridge out, but nice job matching the wood and stain !! you must have a pro in the family!

Have you got a design for that shelf unit? I might be able to do the same.
