When I started this project I was afraid it wasn't going to live up to the look of the original gaucho but I am happy with the result. (To each HER own). I've posted to myself for a month. Gotta quit. I wish you all happy traveling and Let's Go Bucs! Will I miss this place...

Come on, 500 people have read (and I'm sure enjoyed) your thread.Not everybody likes to post. And you even got a response from the big dog himself, Andy!

Really hope you stick around

This is exactly what I want to do in my ambassador. Does the front convert into a bed? Also, could you please post your measurements, It would give me a good starting point.

Ok last question for the day.. Is the back straight up, or do the slope a bit.

Look frackin great!!
