Thanks Sheep. I still have yet to make any safety mechanism. What I do for right now is carry a 15" crescent in the drivers door and use it to tighten the bad boy down! haha :sombrero:Looks great!!! An idea for your 3/4 bolt for your bumper rack,drill a hole the size of a hitch cotter pin to fit in the end of the bolt and some half washers on your nut. Hand tight and a quick release safety! IMO.
Well, I did another marathon weekend! Started Friday at 3:00pm and finished Sunday at 7:00pm. The stars aligned and the lady was out of town. I had all the time uninterrupted for camper chaos!Cool! Can't wait to see it painted!
Hey West. Thank you. I have not personally worked with the Star-Board material. But with what I have seen it looks pretty nice. I have too thought about this because my Engle fridge does not need to be vented. I have just duct taped some reflectex to the back side of the vent for now. My more permanent solution might be to attach a peice of aluminum to the existing frame so it can still lock and hinge. You could do something very similar with the Star-Board. For the upper vent I simply got a piece of 22ga metal and cut to fit. I think it looks ok. Still not 100% sure if I like it. It is the only smooth surface on the camper. I also gorilla glued a piece of reflectex to the back for insulation.The paint looks great!! On another note, what's your opinion on Star-Board material? I've removed the 3-way fridge in favor of a 47 qt ARB that I already had, but I'm trying to find something to do with the vented hatches on the outside of the camper. That space has now been turned into a food storage/pantry area with a set of drawers, and it would be sweet to have them accessible from the outside. After looking, I haven't been able to find anything that will fit those cut-outs other than replacement vent/hatches. I'm considering either doing what you did with the sheet metal and just covering both holes over and calling it good, or fabricating a couple of hatches out of Star-Board (or similar material) to retain access. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Thank you! I am VERY happy with it. Even my neighbors keep coming over and telling me it looks great! haha :sombrero:The change is unreal! You camper looks 30 years newer. Good work on the paint job.
Can you give a basic rundown of your prep work? Also, was the silver paint Rustoleum?
