First you may have seen but we’re taking on a new way to use the internet for our motorhome fun….. we’ve started a “Patren” page calling that content dump “Motorhome Rehab Ranch”. We thought it was kinda catchy but it also describes where we would like the project to go. You want to learn more about your GMC and other vintage RV’s? OK then, lets bring together content for you on that subject , make it easy to search for information…. even easier than it is now…. and wrap it all up into a fun place with a fun group to do it with…. That’s the “Motorhome Rehab Ranch”. OK, it’s a little corny but I hope it will grow on us. The site said to not launch your site until all is ready….. HA, they don’t know ME! I throw things out there as soon as they start breathing…. Hey, be a part of building this site… let me know things you would like. Hey, I’m trying to figure this out as probably you are too so lets do it together.
For now I can only tell you how to get there the hard way. Tomorrow I’ll have you a link. Search for “Patreon” on Google. Then search on that site for “Motorhome Rehab Ranch” and you will find it. Looks like a pile of neat tools so bear with us while we learn…..
OK, Willie is up and it’s off for a couple of round chickens scrambled up. See ya in a bit…..
OK, someone was looking for a new water fill cap…. here it is… gimme a call:
That business done, an d now I have the lap top going again… How about Andy’s paint! The song says “Tequila makes her cloths fall off”… how bout that thin layer of paint… she lost her cloths . Yep, came off in sheets the mess was all over the floor so we had to back it out to clean up! some of the paint did stick to the primer on the plastic parts… stuck to the water fill door…. but that means the primer was the wrong stuff whatever it was Man, that was the best looking crappy paint job I’ve ever seen! The flake was soooo thin, only 1 layer of base and one of clear. And it looked great…. and I gotta tell ya guys this happens all the time… did here… We’ll need to do away with that primer….seal it out, I don’t think we’ll have to remove it…. better living through chemistry this is not the first time this has happened, ainters who don’t know what to do… well just don’t know what to do and you are paying for that. Guys… and here comes the advertising…. guys bring it to us, don’t get duped. Good thing Andy hated the color so he didn’t pay for this paint… good thing or what would he say to the previous owner…. someone had to know this paint didn’t bond. Whatever, the water was spilled so we’ll clean up the floor and do a proper exterior refinish. Cost? Would it be cheaper to have this kind of paint put on and then have to pay to get it off and new paint on? OK… enough of the advertising but guys….. sorry but it’s just true. The $ in gas to get it to us would be well spent….. moving on, this really isn’t what I wanted to show today.
Bill, it’s all you today…. As has been said, “the last 10% of a project takes 30% of the work and its just true on every one. The details are what’s important. Getting the “paint ” on is on thing but getting the exterior trimmed out is another. Likewise on the interior where mall projects are coming to a conclusion.
BTW Bill, Ill be calling you later today to make some plans … I know he’s going to pay attention here and this is why this page is here… all you other guys watch too as I show off to Bill what he now possesses:
The holster is finished with your seat panels .
“In house” Our upholster used new foam and now with everything done, we can start installing them soon. Moving on… check out how the LED lights reflect off the new pleated shades… oh and these are not just “pleated shades” these are a blackout honeycomb design… no stings and will open “bottom-to-top” with the rear and door windows “top-to-bottom” ! I’ll show ya later… and check out those cool tension adjustable overhead door hinges…. very neat! Well alright, this is the original woven wood opening to the bathroom. Jared and the guys restitched the bottom of this original door, sanded and restained it to match…. very nice…. The front is getting close and now with the windshields out we will be able to reach the front edge of the dash for some plastic repairs Without pulling the windshields you cannot reach the front edge of the dash. The guys will be back on Monday to install Bill’s new American made windshields.
lemme give so credit to my windshield crew. These guys drive over from Tampa (@ 2 hours) to do my windshield installs. They’ve been doing my windshields for decades! Why? Because like many trades, the more you do the better you get. I installed them “back in the day” but honestly it scared me every time because I just didn’t do it enough. These guys ONLY do custom bus and motorhome windshields….. ONLY! These guys know what I want, seal in the gasket with new lock bead… yeah man, that’s the ticket Here they’re doing another install… for Susan B.’s daughter. They’re coming back giving us time to do our magic on Bill’s coach
Now you see why we need to go to a site like “Patreon” if we’re to keep doing this… but here it will be in video form!
Oh but ait,there’s more…..
Stil with Bill’s “Fandango”, no… it’s noon, I think I’ve taken enough of our time. Really this is why a new content format is needed. See ya tomorrow… keep watching Patreon….. remember “Motorhome Rehab Ranch”.
