Got one of the emblems off the CT-180. The push washers are a real bear. Used a dremel to cut them off. When I get them all off I am going to take them to a powdercoat place down the road to see if they can restore their red and white beauty. In other news, the front wall is cut, fit and primed. Now my buddy has convinced me to install and LED strip with a dimmer under the awning rail. Should be ready to camp by new years.
Oh yeah, the new trailer.
I usually dont name vehicles, but this is Paul.
With apologies to Willie Nelson.
Well its been rough and rocky travelling
But its finally sitting upright on the ground
And after several pressure washings
I'm surprised to find the roof's still fairly sound
Our Santa Fe it was the roughest
But I know I've said the same about them all
We received our education
from the folks of Pop Up Nation
Me and Paul
Almost busted in Corvallis
But for reasons that I'd rather not disclose
If you haul your camper through there
Be sure your stepper door's completely closed
And at a glamping park near Malibu
They refused to let us through the gate at all
They said we looked suspicious
But I believe they like to pick on
Me and Paul.
At an RV show in Buffalo
With busses, pop ups too, and some hardsides
The show was long and we're just sittin there
And we'd come to camp and not just for the ride
Well we drank a lot of cocoa
So I'm not sure that I lit the fridge at all
I don't think we even missed it
I guess Buffalo ain't geared
For Me and Paul
I've trolled Ebay, Coleman Popup Parts
Even Amazon through summer spring and fall
Butyl Tape Eternabond
Spent my kids education on them all
My wife she thinks I've flipped my lid
Till I remind her why I do these things at all
So I can take her out boondocking
And she can wear her "special stockings"
For Me and Paul
The length of the cabinet had a little slope to it(oops) so I cut each piece to length individually. Screwed it in top and bottom. Need to do a little more brace work on the frame. I'm going to do the small storage cabinets the same way.
Work continues slowly. Mostly because the finish work is where all my carpentry sins are revealed. Had to redo stuff a couple times and it still isn't perfect. But I have reached the "good enough for government work" stage.
The more I stare at that dated upholstery, the more I like it. It goes well with the pine. I have decided to ditch the dinette table, though. In all likelihood I will never use it. I'm just going to cut some plywood to span the gap for the bed. I need to lose some weight for all the screws, right angle brackets and 2x2's I have added, lol.
