Still working on installing the trim. I was able to source some locally which helped. I sent my atwood power jacks out to have the top tubes powdercoated. Also some small pieces like the tv antenna base and dual wheel swing out brackets. They turned out great. Will be assembling the jacks today and installing.

Have decided not to put the luggage rack back on the roof. Never use it and its 22 screws are just one more place for a leak to happen.

Graphics should be on soon as well and then its time to wheel it outside.

Its been a interesting project up to this point. First trip is planned for June. I cannot wait to sit back and relax by it

Thanks for the kind words. Honestly I do not know how I talk myself into these projects. I am still in the process of restoring my 1969 911 as well. Hoping to have it done this year as well so I can start on a cj restoration!!!!!

Beautiful job! Now you have a better than new camper that shouldn't need anything for years.

I had to chuckle about your projects, I'm in at least the same boat. Mine are overwhelming, including restoring the '75 Spit 6 we've had for the last 25 years.

Best of luck with the 911. I nearly bought one many years ago, beautiful, quick, cars.

Steve

Impressed

That was a lot of work, but it looks great. I just finished resealing the trim and vents with Proflex and Dicor, and that was enough work.

I spent this morning attaching the 2x2 square tube frame that goes under the camper. I initially had to use this to space my camper higher off the bed to clear the roof lights on my cab. As I was welding it up I decided to have it extend past the rear by about 30" and as wide as the camper (94") I covered it with the 5/4" deck boards. It proves very handy as our outdoor counter for setting the q and grills on. As well as a beverage area for the occasional happy hour!! On the right side I have welded up a box that bolts on and houses our Honda genny. Might do some type of storage box for the left this year.

The ladder I had previously decided to leave off with the original luggage rack but remembered that I need it for my flag pole. Luggage rack for now is stored in the shed. Dont think it will go back on

Thanks again for all the kind words and encouragement

I am going to be needing some new stairs this year. Local dealer can get me the glow in the dark models from torklift (500cdn$) Does anyone have any experience? Right now the bed sits at 38" We currently have a old set of 3 steps. Thought I might be able to get away with a 4 step model. Any thoughts
