Mommy make the bad man stop!
I tell ya, working out in the shop like this is stovin me up! I’ve obviously been pushing that pencil too much lately, my bones are really talkin to me this morning. This is just so much fun figuring out this new interior design, Willie & I both worked stupid yesterday. Here is our progress coming down the hall.
The hallway numbers fit well even with gaining the inch or so in the hallway…… this is more of a KD (knock down) construction, not modular. That would require the removal of the rear hatch panel… and brother that’s something you don’t wanna chance.
Understand the GMC body frexes and over the decades shifting supports, twisted framework, accidents, etc. make the fit of that cap speculative. So now you somehow get all those rear panel screws out…. push hard on the panel and P-O-P, it comes out. Refitting may be fine but then again it may not. Lets bypass that variable and simply not do that. So connection point and squaring up as you go, Nancy and Willies interior is coming together That blue tape is there to protect that awesome rounded corner. Today the angled frig cabinet goes in and if we’re really lucky maybe the frig itself! Stay tuned….
Hey Adrian, Danny said you like loud horns… how bout 2db. lower than a train horn? This crosses over into the realm of the southern expression…. “Hey, youall, watch chis… hold my beer….” Twin compressors and 3 gallons of reserve… oh yeah baby…. listen carefully……
Finally, this is a bittersweet part of this business. I see folks find their dream coach… shower their family member with trinkets and love it as though it were a family member. I have a personal relationship with them and their coach as they go out there and do it. Then I see something happen where the coach is no longer needed or used. How do you sell a part of your family? But time moves on, we all come and go but these classic motorhomes are here to stay. I see these machines change hands and change their use and need…. it’s just part of the cycle of life..
So here’s Richard L. in his dream machine Richard was a dairy farmer in Michigan and for decades he used his GMC to tow his boat to the Keys where he and first his sons then grandkids would vacation from farm life. He would drop the coach with us for maintenance while his boat was in the keys and drag that monster home with his coach. He loved that thing and drove the wheels off. He maintained the coach and showered it with gifts. A Mac dash…. .. full patio and window awnings Electric mirrors, Alcoas, quad bag system, our roller cam motor, Manny tranny etc. and like I said the whole family used and loved their GMC motorhome.
As all good things go…. a death in the family then health problems and the coach made it’s last trip to the keys where it sat for 2 years. Richard’s sons took the coach over… get his running and brought it to us. He made it under his own power… Good job there Richard. We exposed this former dream machine looking for a new reason to live on our web site.
Chuck S. saw the puppy in the window and saw it’s possibilities and took the plunge. Being a Harley guy and a hot rodder I KNOW the coach will be in new good hands So at this auspicious moment, let me introduce to you Chuck’s new object of his frustrations
and a new member of HIS family THIS is what it’s all about….. thanks for letting me be a part….
BTW guys, how is this font to read? It’s a little bigger for our failing eyesight and I can use the “bold” on it. If it’s any problem please let me know. OK… I’m into that interior again…. happy Sunday to all… see ya tomorrow .
