When you say "Stuck this on", where and how did you have that made?

I feel like I can field that question - As a child of the age where it was cool to announce to the whole world that you were driving a honda via windshield banner.

Sign shops will make you one off custom stickers for fairly cheap - depending on the level of work they have to put into the graphic.

They generally have a book of fonts, you tell them what you want and they will knock up an image - off to the CNC vynal cutter and a couple min later you've got yourself a custom sticker.

The last time I did it (probably around 1999) it cost me $30 for a much larger one (and I used their font book)

If you wanted to do something like this I would search "signs" in the yellow pages

Here's a couple of sites that can help you out. I've used "Ultimate Decals" before and have been very satisfied.

details details details....

i reinstalled the original shelf just to get an idea of how it looks. I really like it, so I'm planning on redoing it to match the rest of the countertops... whenever the laminate comes in! It was back-ordered... puts me off another week, so I'll finish up details in the meantime.

The new shelf will probably have a birch front, with a laminate shelf (in red) depending on how it looks.

I also have the first 2 windows trimmed out with aluminum extrusion. It's a little tougher to work with than flat stuff, but looks pretty sharp, as long as the edges line up! Here's a few pics of the front window.

The side window has a problem area, because of the way the fridge sits in there, the blinds will have to be trimmed to work around the countertop edge. I'm going to wait to do any snipping until I have the countertops secured in, to avoid any unnecessary obscenities.

ha!

I also added the bottom pieces to snug them up against the wall.

I love the look of aluminum blinds on an aluminum trailer... even from the outside! Very modern!

Next up, FINALLY swapping the axle. I just picked up the new shackles today. I'll need a hand, so it might have to wait until the weekend after next. By then, HOPEFULLY the laminate will be in as well, and I can finally add some color to this thing!

Let there be COLOR!!!!

well, after looking at wood all these months, it sure was nice to add a little color to the trailer. A lot of things are happening out of order here, in an attempt to have this thing somewhat camp-able by the first weekend in November. My upholstery lady has finished the mattress, and is in the process of finishing the front couches. In the meantime, the laminate came in, so i switched gears from the windows to tackle that. Both pieces are in and cleaned up. Next is the trim.

I still need to finish trimming 2 windows, build the new shelf, finish the doors for the galley cabinets, finish the plumbing, build 4 more doors for the bottom with the perf-ed aluminum... and the list goes on and on... I really wonder how much of this will be complete by November.

There's always the April rally! ha!

Looking great. I love the contrast of color. What model fridge is that, if you don't mind me asking?

It'll be a "partial trailer" by then, anyway!

:-D

yep. I used the larger one in our trade wind. Same manufacturer. You see these in a lot of campers now, probably due tot he low cost. We towed from Atlanta, GA to Natural Bridge, VA with it loaded up, and a couple of frozen bottles of drinking water in there for insurance. Everything was still cold when we got there, after 10 hours on the road. That's longer than we like to haul in a day, so it's passed my litmus test.

We don't camp anywhere without a plug, so no worries there, either.

Hey, that's not what your TW looks like inside anymore!

More great work on the Silver Pickle of course. I think I should just copy that remark onto my clipboard and paste it every time I click over here!


Now, not to touch on a potentially sore subject, but I saw you mention that you have yet to address some of the tanks. With the floor in and the furniture installed, I'm wondering how you plan to address that? I have no doubt you'll be able to, just curious how you plan to approach it.

Keep it up, I can't wait to see it with all of the fabrics, trim, and finishing touches!
