Re: Wildcat Lodge

In addition to the overhead cabinet on the previous page - we got around to some outside work also yesterday. We switched to a full size fridge during the interior build out and we took out two additional windows on the passenger side. We just insulated and duct taped the outside. Here are some pics skinning the two windows.

Our opening to cover is approximately 22". Our 20 guage steel is cut to 24". We removed the rivets on the upperside of the rub rail and slipped the metal down behind and then scooted it up under the drip edge. When finished we get about 1/2" overlap on the top. We also removed all the vertical pillars between the windows and used the existing holes for the rivets to attach the skins. We took one of the vertical metal pieces and cut to fit to trim out the front of the skin.

Here are some pics.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We went through 2 cheap rivetors, so we splurged for the big dawg. Here are some action shots.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here are some pictures of the doors on the overhead cabinet. We have used plexiglass which we will tint using leftovers from the windows. That way we can use remotes for the stereo. We will paint the whole cabinet to match the rest of the cabinets.

The celiling is still factory. We do plan to paint.

We worked on the sound proofing the dog house. We will be adding some dynamat under and carpet on top. We also worked on the rubber gasket around the floor of the doghouse.

We also installed the entry rail and fire extinguisher.

And our mattresses came in from http://www.campmattress.com/camp_mattresses2.html. The shipping costs were almost as much as the mattresses.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

We also put the finishing touches on the dinettes so that they can be converted to beds.




And finishing touches on the lavatory.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

It's amazing what a little putty, caulk, paint and trim helps with a project. Here are the upper cabinets finished.

Re: Wildcat Lodge

Here are some pics of the driver's area. We cleaned off the seat pretty well and did the floor.

We also put in the cove molding in the front of the bus.
