Thanks for the briefing on your COE project. Man, that's a lot of mechanics involved in building a custom truck. I salute you.

And I had no idea building a frame was so involved. Maybe that's why my cabinet face frames don't look so good. Here in Colorado we are used to that "rustic" look where the logs in our houses may not fit just right.

Amazing work, Blue! I finally got around to catching up on your thread over lunch today and am really impressed by the work you are doing.

Went to Dallas to see my daughter for Father’s Day last weekend . Got back on Tuesday night and got work the next day on the woodwork . Primed an old 1/4” bulkhead with some highbuild primer . Thursday sand most of it off , trying to fill in some of the grain . Got the garage ready this morn to paint . Had no sealer so put two coats of epoxy primer then three coats of white .
Crap , I got thinner pop again , so tomorrow I’ll cut and reshoot . Should have let the primmer dry overnight before shooting the white . I can fix that .

You gotta be a chemists to paint so it seems. You'll have no problems getting back to where you want to be. It it don't come in a rattle can, I can't use it.

I can fix that .

Paint is sanded and reshot . Looks great and will give it two days to dry good and hard . Hope to start kitchen cabinets next week . Can not really tell how good the paint looks in these photos . Will take some after installation.

Had to see what it looked like

So the face frame is dry and good and hard . Had to see what it looked like up but had to make an Al. cover for in front of my hot water heater . Done and attached . Put the old door on for now and clamped in place . I like it. Photos are hard to take as itís getting a little close . Will attach the face frame tomorrow.

Little by little.

Well all the pvc drain lines on the inside are done . YEA ! Finished all the pvc with nylon ties .

Mounted the bulkhead that I painted the other day . I put a metal support behind it where the pocket door stops . This is to hang a support off for my wifeís tv . Also got the slide in for the door with the lintel . Came out pretty nice , need to make a few adjustments .

And last I mounted the other twin bed frame .

Well thatís about all I got done since last report . Going to start the frame work for the dinette . This is where all the electrical goes and I would like to get it hooked up as soon as possible. Think AC ! Getting hot in west Texas . Of coarse Iíll have to do the sink and stove cabinets at the same time , itís all one piece from the street side bed to the front .

Latter , Blue .

Is hot defined as above 100 degrees? We have summer hot weather here in the mountains. We still have snow on the mountains, at least a little bit.

David , itís not hot yet . This morning it was 91 in the shade on the front porch but Iím not working on the front porch . First picture is right outside my work area and the second is in the work area where the AS is . But next month it will start getting hot !
Itís humid today but when it gets to be next month the humidity will be in the single digits. Blue

Where we live, we consider hot anything above 80 degrees, like today. I think 50 is a rather ideal temp. We humans can adapt and get used to all kinds of weather around the earth. Arctic Eskimos, or Sahara desert camel riders. We humans are wonderful things.

I agree with David, itís hit near 90 up here by Fairbanks, and I feel like Iím about to spontaneously combust! Gave up working once it got over 80 today, I canít imagine working in over 100 degree heat!

Here on the Central FL east coast, it has been in the mid 90s with high humidity for weeks now, and is forecast through the the 4th holiday. No break in sight.

Itís hard to get motivated to work on Faith in this heat

Work , work , work !

I finished up repairing the overhead cabinet over the street side bed . Got the inside painted . Wife just went to the big city to visit her 98yo dad and she will pick up some more PPG auto paint for me .
So while I wait, I started designing my galley cabinets layout . And think I came up with the design Iím going to use . Tomorrow I will screw the face frame together and finish up the hard wood trim on the end piece between the galley and the end of the dinette. Then will paint all at once .

You are right. Vintage Airstream renovators are typically good at cabinet making. Me, not so much. I'm better at axles, plumbing, electrical and appliance installation. We all enjoy the hobby for different reasons.

Your galley will look great.
