Well this is my first motorhome ever, lol. But I've done construction and have worked on cars for many years. So it's really just combining the two. I haven't decided on how I want the interior yet. I have mixed feeling with going modern or era correct. I am having room for a full size bed in the back.

We worked on stripping the paint off today and finished riveting the roof back on. My hands awfully tired, should have bought a pneumatic rivet gun.

I looked at interlux paint but when I asked them if they had a primer that works with galvanized steel they told me they had one that "should work". So I am now looking at pettit paint because they have a primer that they know works on galzanized steel.

been out of town but made some progress today. Trying to sell your house in one state and looking in another is not easy. My wifes been down in Texas since March so I've been splitting time there and here. My dad and I made some good progress today. We have the drivers side about ready for primer. Going use Sherwin Williams dtm primer ($$$) bUT it's suppose to be good. I'll be using their duration exterior latex super white for t he paint. Hoping with a yellow stripe. I still have to rewire and do all the plumbing and putting up plywood walls. Oh yeah I'm also buy a fixer upper for our house in texas. Just signed the contract tonight. Don't think I'm going get it all done in time. So our main focus is paint and all the drive able things (brakes,tires,wheels, carb rebuild). Have to be done because we close on the 15th here so I have to be able to atl east drive it and I can leave it at my sisters w h o only lives abut 20 miles away , and it can't look bad and stay there.

Oh my goodness, Looking great so far! I used the elastomeric roof coating I bought from Lowes! Put on the white, on my 1974 Shasta, it held up great! And I used Dicor self leveling sealant for the seams, and around all of the vents and the A/C!
Oh, and by the way, You are going to fit in nicely here!! Rail!

One of your original questions was to know what frame you had. Did you try to decode the VIN? I did that on the 76 I have been working on and it gave me quite a bit of information such as engine, frame, where built etc. It is looking very nice. Something to be proud of when your done.

I did find the vin on the frame and on a tag in the engine compartment. Been busy working on it. Have most of the brakes replaced, had to wait on ordering a socket for the axle nuts. Got it primed and first coat of paint on. I used sherwin williams dtm primer and duration gloss for paint. Was hoping for a little more gloss but oh well. Trying to paint when it was 90 out made for some issues with it dring to fast, so had to be more careful in our approach.

I think I fixed the trans. Adjusted the bands, changed the filter and fluid and seems to be working. One of my new rubber brake lines has a bad end do had to order another. Keeps leaking, thought it was the metal line, cut it reflaired it and put on a new fitting and still leaks. That will be in tomorrow afternoon. But I think my "new" rebuilt master cylinder may not be good. But going wait until I fix the line and make sure.

Great looking rig. Big fan of the yellow on white scheme. The new winnie tribute comes to mind.

The Chrysler 727 was one of the best transmissions ever made. Even if it's broke it can be fixed much cheaper than a long list of other transmissions. It's a keeper.
