couple of pic's of demo work on '78 Southwind

It's been about a month or so since I've posted anything. I haven't been working a whole lot on the motor home as I've been busy with school and other stuff but I was able to get some of the old flooring up. Here are a couple of pictures of the mess. I have really found the PL Premium ployurethane construction adhesive to be some awesome stuff. I used that and screws to start putting the new wooden framework of the walls together.

That's what keeps me and my wife going on it I also think the cold weather will be much better for working on the areas inside where the big black ants reside. Hopefully they'll all be hibernating pretty soon!!

Nice update. I especially appreciate the 3rd pic which gives a sense of the scope of effort. However, I don't see a "critical" tool..one which I always have on any big time project..a radio with a coat hanger as antenae! I've had the same radio since..I dunno..maybe the 80's...I listen to while working and over time the antenae was abused so the coat hanger fills in. One of my buddies who sometimes helps out and sometimes just keeps me company once commented that any project needs such a radio..and I think he is right! All in good fun...good luck and have fun with the journey!

if it helps any... I do have a radio, which doesn't have a coat hanger antenna, but only gets like 2 or 3 stations. Good thing I don't mind country

WOW, that's a bit of a reality check for me, as I plan to do that same thing to my Elandan this winter. Gotta fix a roof leak, and then the damage it caused to the ceiling and no doubt the damage I haven't seen, as there is a somewhat "soft" floor in the kitchen.

Thanks for sharing your pics, looking forward to seeing the progress.
