It is an "industrial or professional grade" liquid floor wax. I have done my MH, my outside plastic storage boxes, home generator box, outside launi beer fridge.

And the best part is he customized a stove cover with the cutout. The original color was beige... the new faux granite gives the MH a pop of color.
3) New flooring...both vinyl and carpet. *Hated the fact that you enterend the MH onto carpet and also hated the carpet in the bathroom. Entended the vinly to the entrace way and also all the way through to the bedroom as well as extended it a foot and a half towards the dinette and sofa. Now I don't freak about walking in the coach with shoes...as long as you stay off the carpet that is!!!
Nice job!

We actually ordered them from Home Depot. We talked about solid surface however we elected to go with the laminate which was easier for my husband to work with. We ordered solid pieces and my husband made the cuts for the sink and stove. One thing that we did learn after the fact is that we could have ordered them directly from the fab shop and cut out the middleman. The cost for the counters was approx $500 however it depends upon your color choice. Of course I happened to pick a color that had to be special ordered!

Just look up Countertops or Building in your local yellow pages. Most countertop companies are listed for your area. You can get either "flat lay" which are hand made laminate or "post form" which are factory made with rolled splashes and usually wrapped under front edges. There are literally hundreds of colors and textures to choose from.

I admire all you guys who only have to polish and wash!

I finished laminating the bedroom walls and closet with Formica, trim tomorrow. (Home Depot and Loews no longer carry Formica). Rough-cut the kitchen counter-top Formica.

Received my new Suburban Water Heater from PPL, one day delivery!!

Older stuff: rebuilt two storage boxes with aluminum and pop-rivets. They were completely rusted-out, now they're better than new. Insulation and carpet next. Bamboo floor, need to finish step edge. Pulled and reinstalled Genny three times, had a busted motor mount. I retapped and put in a longer bolt, all fixed.

The bus survived Hurricane Irene and Super Storm Sandy without a leak! (My house didn't).

Washed half the bus, big storm here in NJ.

I have some on My Palomino POP that need removed, I am sure it will look better too. I hope I can paint these back on later.

Yes. If that's where you are headed, I'd advise going through Grand Forks to Nelson and up if you were thinking of going. Don't go Nakusp to Kaslo and down. Road is slow and winding. Highway from Fauquier to Nakusp is washed out right now. Highway 6 from Vernon to Fauquier is pot-holed, steep and winding. Hard on the brakes as well.

Today, we.....

Finished removing all the old curtains and the boards with the valance on them ( don't know what they're called).
Spray painted the fridge panels a nice antique beige to cover up the scratched wood grain.
Inspected all the vents, the AC and storage box on the roof for seals to repair.
Removed the old CB radio, antenna and wiring.
Tore up a corner of carpet to inspect base flooring to anticipate needs when putting new flooring down.
Debated pros and cons on sheet vinyl or laminate for new flooring.
Trying to find leak that makes the carpet under drivers feet all damp and moldy smelling. No luck, will have to keep trying.
Tried to turn n generator but failed. Add that To list for professional service people.
Dug around the basement sewing stuff and found a nice good size chunk of fabric for curtains.
Found some old sheets and blankets stored away in the basement to use on the beds.

We have a to of work to do.....but I LOVE projects like this....

Installed a new CarbonMonoxide alarm and replaced all the broken cabinet door supports. Put eternabond over the damaged areas of the fiberglass exterior.
