I read too fast and thought you were installing a TV in the Palomino. I'd suggest a 50" HD...

The people over on the PopUp Board say were camping on the "Dark Side" if we own a Travel Trailer or Motorized RV, to trailer folks TV is a Tow Vehicle but in my case a 52" Television may have more power.

Gotta love the smell of sawdust in the morning. Just watch the walnut it brings me out and makes me breathe funny.

12/31/2012 Half of the Lift Arms reworked.

We've got two of the four Lift Arms reworked. We replaced the sleeves that were nearly impossible to slide over the hinges. Polished the shafts and painted the hinges and new sleeves. The sleeve kits came with new rivets.
Here are some pictures. http://sdrv.ms/Z54YNn
Thanks for Looking
Dick

01/20/2013 Several bits of detail work done.

I still can't paint the body because of cold weather but I have done some detail work. The amount of detail work is staggering. It seems like every time I look at the PUP something new pops up, pun intended.
Here are some pictures of the work we've done in the past few weeks. http://sdrv.ms/VTbWTu

Thanks for looking.

I've really enjoyed following your progress from start to near finish. I really like the job you did on the drawers with the walnut accents. Really nice job!

Thanks, glad you're enjoying the process we sure are. It's just been a lot of fun and a big variety of things to learn about and do.

BTW that's a good looking couple in your profile picture.
