Bubba, I'll keep looking, I know I found a 12 volt LED that I figured I could run with no ballast but can't seem to locate it tonight. Here's a link to one of many on Amazon that run on 110.

Not a lot of pictures today. I put the supports in for the sink counter, vanity shelf, mounted the hamper to the wall and floor, and installed the bedroom sconces.

In the shop we stripped the rear shelf above the windows, and rebuilt the storage compartment next to the toilet. Those and the bed frame I built yesterday received stain and will get cleared tomorrow.

The plan is to have All cabinet work (except some doors and drawers) done by this time next week so that I can turn my attention to the kitchen

And Bubba, thanks for the VAP5 tip. Saved me $4.50.

Glad everyone found the bulbs they needed thanks for chiming in!

Today after work I installed the rear end cap shelf, and started to install the little side storage that connects between the hamper and the toilet wall.

Sink Parts

Scott I'll check the original sink and tub faucets tomorrow. Any clues you can give me besides the diameter of the stem? Is the measurement across the ears or in-between? What does the shower arm look like? My tub faucet was mounted to the side of the sink cab with the flex shower hose.

Sooooo, just wondering what you will do when you have this amazing restoration done? You are doing it so fast and so accurate that causes me to wonder what you will pursue next. I only in my wildest dreams could do what you are doing...and taking a lot more time.

I am in awe.....with my piddly list of projects to get done.

Thank you for checking! I need to get out in the shop and take a few more pictures, take a few more measurements too. That measurement was the widest part of the teeth. I'll do that in the morning, I know the brand of faucet was on it too.

The shower faucet I had a picture of from a Spartan owner, but lost it (and tons of other stuff) when my hard drive failed this spring and I learned that my backup wasn't doing my emails or some of my picture folders.

I've been looking on my computer the last bit and haven't found it yet, but I'll keep looking. The shower pipe is basically shaped like a candy cane, with an articulating elbow that threads into the faucet. It has a thumb screw on the elbow to all someone to tilt the arm at any angle, all the way down to the shower floor to use as a bath faucet I guess.

I'll see what I can dig up of the attaching point, here's one picture I did have a backup of that shows the upper half.

Well, the list of projects is far longer than the balance of my accounts...

We are 13 months into it, I figure that during the school year I'm working on the trailer about 30 hours a week, with my wife and kids helping when they can too (beyond all our family activities). I'm a morning person so I generally get up and do about 4-5 hours of work before the kids are up and moving on weekends and more in the daytime with helpers/airstreamers in training.



What next projects do we have? (in no particular order)

We have a 1955 Cadillac to restore to use with this trailer, plus to cruise around town in.

We live in a 1910 stone farmhouse, and have many projects including a matching greenhouse I need to finish this year for my wife.

I would like to go back and redo some work on our 63 trailer from the around the world caravan know that I have better tools, and more experience (some cabinets to rebuild differently), it needs a polish among other things.

We hope to do a lot more camping this year, last summer I spent TONS of time stripping paint and working on the frame, and due to that we didn't attend a single rally, although we did manage a mega vacation down to Disneyland without the trailer in tow.

I should mention when we joined here, years back and were working on building out the front 2/3rds of our first trailer, a very solid 69 tradewind, we could hardly imagine taking something this big on, in fact I still think that on days where things aren't going well and I'm learning how not to make something as it goes in the trash bin and I start again. I learn a lot from others on here every time I log in.

Lastly I know my wife would like to see more of me, especially without me smelling like saw dust, paint, or other restoration smells!

I see you found new faucet handles but it sounds like you need the shower armature as well. Is this true, and are you saying it’s the same as from a Spartan? Hopefully I have been successful in attaching photos of such a shower. Are any of these like the one you are looking for?

I will post a notice on the Spartan site if you want, or of course you can do it. Let me know.

I also sold the Krefft today, much less than I wanted but itís sold pending pickup.

Iím heading to look at what I hope is the right refrigerator this weekend.
Scott, have you found a good source to have small items chromed? I need to have a handful of small items rechromed, including the ceiling fixture. By the way, the LED circular bulb arrived today. Thanks for the tip. I canít find a place in Texas thatís willing to take on small items. At least it would be easy to ship. Thanks in advance and keep up the good work. Bubba

Spokane Metal Finishing in Washington state did my light. There were a few blemishes when I got it back, and they had me ship it back to them and they corrected it without issue and sent it back. It was VERY slow, especially with the redo, took 6 weeks from when I sent it until I could install it. Cost was $170 with shipping for the light. I'd consider better options if I had them but as you found, very few shops were interested in small projects. Unfortunately the EPA regs have forced a lot of places out of business. My best source frankly was a local shop that sent stuff down to Mexico to a family run plating company then back, but I lost 4 good baby moons in my last attempt to get stuff done because they shut down and disappeared while my parts were on an international vacation and I never go them back. Their prices were amazing, and the results were show quality.

Fortunately I don't have much left to chrome, but I will keep an eye out. Spokane will do it, just don't be in a hurry.

In the second photo a PO added storage and made the bedroom divider wider. I've removed that to go back to the original layout.

Thanks Harold!

I went ahead with a toe kick on the sink cabinet. Most of the day today and some yesterday and most of the kitchen is framed out, at least the lowers.

Iíve had a supply issue on the ash plywood. The only distributor in the northwest got a bad batch (6 bad sheets so far) so they are reordering. We are in limbo for the 3rd week now.

The street side will have a full height wall, the curb side (refrigerator) has a double wall so the panelray heater can be recessed and the refrigerator can vent.

Hereís the sink cabinet

Lots of templating for this kitchen. Every cabinet piece is ripped to the right dimension to match what the woodwork in the rest of the trailer is. The counter under the front window was several mock ups with a hot glue gun and double thickness cardboard. The Formica should be in late next week.

Tomorrow is bathroom day. Trimming out and getting the vanity shelf in and door back on, as well as building out the structure for the kitchen sink, shelf and counter top.
