This site is great!! I have gotten so many ideas, tricks and help so I wanted to post my build pics in case it helps anyone else with ideas in the future. http://s626.photobucket.com/albums/tt34 ... s/?start=0
We are building this for tailgating at UF footbal games this season and maybe some day trips here and there. It is a 92 B700 5.9, 65 passanger from south florida and paid too much for it at an online auction but that is ok with me.
It will have a roof covered back porch, a lanai if you will. A toilet (thetford aqua magic plastic deal), little /cabinet counter with sink, 20 gal combined grey/black, 20 fresh that will be 1/2-3/4 full, 2 benches along the wall with a small bartop running down the center isle, AC/DC power, converter, inverter, 30 amp shore for portable genny, decent sound system with rca in to put the football game on tv over the stereo, orange and blue exterior, exterior shower box to rinse off if needed and other misc things.
So far we have, removed the seats and heater box, cut out the porch, started the railing, removed the subfloor, sandblasted the interior and repainted, put a new 3/4 subfloor using concrete formboards which have a thick coating on one side (for condensation resistance in this application), oil and FF change, removed and skinned with Paintgrip the rear 4 windows on each side, removed and disassembled the front windows, tinted them and am waiting on the new rubber wedge to come in for reasembly, installed 1 new hatch in the rear, now the front one is broke from sun rot and a whole lot left to do.
I'll keep the progress updated. Hopefully alot will get done this long weekend and the wife out of town.
What does everyone do with broken hatches? We were thinking of biting the bullet and putting an A/C in its place. We would make a plate to cover, cut the 14" square in the plate, reinforce the area with square tubing and drop it in place. Those stupid escape hatches are expensive!!! Any better ideas?
