Re: La Tortuga...updated 08-03-13

a lot better that's why all I did was paint electrical boxes and cut the wood for Lisa's side (notice the pcs "holding" the shelf up? that is actually EMT tubing covering the 1/4-20 all thread that threads into Pem Nuts in ceiling...the same ones that put me down last weekend)

thanks for asking...hoping to be 100% this weekend

Re: La Tortuga...updated 08-03-13

That is a nice way to cover all thread, I may have to steal that idea.

I saw on one of the RV conversion show on the travel channel where they ran all the plumming and electrical out side the walls. Using conduit and stainless steel. It looked clean and nice. The shower was all stainless steel.

Taking a break from wiring and poly-ing, remember the old stop sign?

Made this out of some 1/8 alum scrap
