No teeth biting content yet but we did post a first video over at “Motorhome Hehab Ranch” on Patreon……… Already been told to fix my hear and loose those (BCG) Poindexter glasses…….. sorry but it reflect my inner self!
Got some pics processed for today, We’ll be hitting breakfast in a few minutes but until I hear the door slam on Willies domicile out there I’l plunk on…..
The interior on “Savoy Brown” is progressing. We have the sofa/bunk base now on it’s riser and in place to include the reworking of the furnace ducting. This is of course next to the galley counter sporting their washer/drier Yeah pretty neat… the galley will be missing a built in stovetop but the Quisenart microwave/convection/grill should help out Willie did a great job of manufacturing his rear “cross-cabinet” with a heat formed facing and clear urethane interior finish and check out the heat formed slider doors… When the vacuum form doors arrive things will take on a whole new look of completed… stay tuned…. We’re also finishing off the sofa lower panel in the wood tone..
OK.. here’s a rebuilt tip ….. Hey, how does your entry doo latch look ? Can it be “Fufued”… a highly technical term…. or does it need a little more love. Onew way is to simply scuff the shiney off with sand paper and paint it the color of the coach like this it kinda goes away. So you want a new one, fine but being a unique parts still being produced for over the road trucks…. almost! See tell me the operative word in this phrase that BTW fits about everything having to do with your beloved GMC Motorhome “It Almost fits perfect”…… 5 seconds…. that’s right almost and this latch is made today for a small exterior storage compartment meaning there probably wouldn’t be anyone inside there to open the door from the inside so there would be no reason to have an inner latch pin to open the latch…. right? So you “cut” where it says so and weld that pull to your new latch and remember if that weld breaks you will not open the door! Add that 30 minutes worth of professional labor to the cost of the new latch and what… you’re putting back in your original lock assembly? Are you nuts! It’s been under repeated use for over how many years? Give it a gold watch bunky and spring for a new set of keys…. All this brings the total upgrade to over $200 for the parts…. what can I say, there it is and then you need to know how to install it AND we now cut an access opening on the inside of the door with a coverpanel just in case something like that ever does happen…. hey, belts and suspenders….
Off to biscuits-n-gravy… see ya in a bit…..
Naaa, lets get this day started, I have Bill’s entry door to trim out . With his new exterior latch now modified I’m ready to build the door. This project is something I enjoy doing so stay tuned and I’ll show you what I do……
See ya later oh and please go to our Patreon page “Motorhome Rehab Ranch” and see how we’re putting it together. I got up one video… no content yet but I’m getting there. Take a look and thanks for the support…..
