Nice work Mike, fixing to finish my blind conversions. Front windshield is next.
Like how you and John ( captjake1) trimmed out window pillar. Im assuming you installed MCD. Anything special with drivers/passenger side windows?

Thanks Perry,

I should have looked at Johns pic's. Could have gotten some good ideas.

I chose AutoMotion Shades on recommendation from Dave and LJ's.

They seem to be nice enough guys. They took the time to measure for my shades. Did the entire coach by the way.

They have a medium to small size shop. Specialty seems to be upgrades and remodels. Looked at some of their work. Pretty nice. Then again, its a production shop and they don't take the time that you or I do on projects.

But, they have a lot of experience it seems. Hard to beat that.

Another small project in the works. Grille and cover for the fantastic fans.
Never liked having a large square hole in the ceiling.

This is a practice cover in pine. Didn't spend much time on finish or fit.
Once my American cherry lumber arrives I'll produce the final versions.

Hi Bill,

I plan on mounting them just like I did with the ceiling lights.
Camco drawer catches.

Hey Mike,

Your shade install maintains your long standing tradition of excellence.....

Hope that mine turn out as professional as yours did.

We had Dave and LJ measure our cockpit today!
