swapped the seats out of my class b project into my class c, luckily they are both tan interior so they look right, it will be a year or so before the b will be road ready and the c has a 4000 mile trip in it's future. hopefully will get new seats for the b when it is built.
took the c out for a drive to ck out the new exhaust, great not loud at all the wife will be happy, reworked the kick-down linkage so it doesn't down shift to soon like before hopefully will help the fuel mileage but made it much easier
to drive no more feather footing the throttle.
next addition will be a aftermarket cruise it should be in by next days off.
more in the future hopefully be done by June

Well I got busy today as it was finally a nice day without rain! I pulled of the cover and got busy on the roof pulling away all the old and decrepit sealant. I was amazed I didn't have any leaks as the condition of the dicor was rather embarrassing, but I did not take me long to do fourtunatly. Wire brushes and cleaned with acitone, i purchased this ol gal in October and it has poured rain since so I haven't touched it since. I checked out the awning and it functions as it should and is in good shape ( I was worried about this because I neglected to check on pre purchase inspection!! ) I am posting pics but I am kinda embarrassed as it is not up to my standard of condition but I bought for a great price with the hopes that a good zep treatment will bring it back to glory, which will be done this weekend as we are expecting 70degree temps. We have one more nice day coming before a few days if showers so tomorrow I will be re sealing all of the open joints first thing in the morning I figure about 3 more hours ill have it all done up top stay tunes as ill have more pics of the progression

I finally got around to finishing fixing the messed wallpapered wood paneled wall in my van. The wallpaper was all damaged as well as the backing stuff. I removed the bubbled up sections and installed some cheap tan automotive carpet I got at O'Reilly last year.

Picture here..
