Re: Transmogrifie and Me

After much researching and talking to people I think I've come to a decision on the next few steps.

1) Finish sanding floor (about 6 feet left)
2) Finish up cleaning around wheel wells (screws and rubber and rust and general left over gunk) real well
3) Mop floors and walls several times, one cycle with vinegar rest soap and water (Hopefully get to one round of this today if it gets above 40 degrees and/or figure out my propane tank and heater.)
Also today trip to Ace, trip to Restore

4) Use http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...ductId=1272246 on floor and wall panels

Then the money starts. 7 sheets of foam for the floors, 7 sheets of plywood, rosin paper and 4? sheets of foam for the walls. Figure rather than borrowing a truck I'd just take the bus and get them all at the same time. Will see.

Gas went down almost $1 a gallon which both excites and worries me.

Phone weather says it's supposed to get 48 and sunny today.

I have about 40 years of MEN... all on CD! What I do is do a search on MEN website, locate all the years/issues that have the info I'm looking for and then note that down, flip thru the CD's to find the right years and look up the issues. Unfortunately I often get sidetracked into reading something totally unrelated to what I was looking for. I like the "early years" better than the later years. Early years were more DIY, after they were bought out it became "buy this from our advertiser". They are back to a little more DIY but not like the early years. I like DIY because "one size" usually does not fit us.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

I am looking at an all in one wet bath and can't find one or even the parts for one, so DIY might be the way I'd have to go, then you have to make sure everything is sealed properly etc. One guy made one completely out of plywood and fiberglassed the whole thing to look like one piece and it was gorgeous but I'm not that talented I don't think.

In college the intructor always said you can only eat an elephant one bite at a time. Perhaps I could try.

Was checking my facebook and came across this picture.

1934 Thompson Housecar

And she has an album called Moving Castles. There are some neat pictures Jessica Amanda Salmonson is her name if anyone uses Facebook.

Ok, but that primer is for non-Ferris metal.

Aluminum and galvanized steel. The small part that's not aluminum will just have to suffer. Love it when you ask the old guy at Ace and he's like reading me the can. I read the can. I can't believe the level of ... whatever.. we have in this town. Or don't have as the case may be.

Why would you want one of those? We had one in the Class C. We loathed it. The floor is always wet because someone has taken a shower. The floor is also always dirty/muddy because some one has taken a shower and someone else had to go in the "bathroom" and tracked dirt in on their shoes. They might be doable for a short weekend but anything longer and they are PITA.

Ours was a pan that extended about 1/2 way up the wall. It was fiberglass and flimsy. I had to patch the floor since the manufacturer didn't put much support under the shower stall.
