This thread is awsome. I just spent the last evening or two slowly scrolling through it!!

Anyway, heres a few shots of our "new to us" rig. Previously owned by my parents, now passed over to my wife and I. We're currently restoring it and getting it ready for road next year with plans on touring the West of Ireland in it.

Some shots taken 15 plus years ago....







A couple of more recent photos, taken before the refurb began...









The original doors are trashed, so I got a good price on a pair of replacements to bolt right on... I've got a whole bunch of other panel replacement and fabrication to do on the rest of the cab before paint though...



my winter project.

The rest of the rig is in pretty good shape. Everything works and all it needs is a good cleaning...
I recently got the engine running and now I'm working on the brakes which I'm hoping to have bled and operational this coming weekend... Making steady progress on it so far!!

gonna roll the roof stuff on but spray the sides, spraying with a gun to me is easier than spray bombs or rolling but i have a ways to go with body work and one corner structural wood repair then i can paint it, probably next summer

Picking up my new Vintage PUP tomorrow.

I just couldn't wait for my Tradewinds to become Vintage and needed a less expensive way to get to the fishin hole. This little Pop Up is gonna be perfect for the guy and his dog fishing trips and the fuel to get there won't prohibit those short two or three day trips.
It's a 1977 Palomino (I think Pinto) I'll know for sure tomorrow when I pick it up.

That's a nice looking Vintage PopUp there. I like the layout of the dining booth versus being off to one side and less useable.
