Colorado Thomas SaftLiner conversion project pics
I'm just now getting around to posting some pics of my conversion project. I've been working on it for 2 1/2 years, and have more early conversion photos on an old hard drive I will recover and post as soon as possible.
They are in no particular order, but I'll do something about that as soon as I figure out how.

Your comments are welcome.

WOW :shock: Fricking nice job! Awesome woodwork, paint and electrical. The kitchen looks nice too. Are you done with it now, or still working on some things??

I'm still working on it, although I expect to be mostly complete in about 30-45 days.
As soon as I get more pics from my old HD, I'll post them and try to get everything in order.

Nice work..from the pics it looks like you are out here on the plains of Co..I'm in sterling, which is up in the north east corner.

Very nice! Now I kinda wish I'd gone with white rather the the green and almond I finished (coat one) yesterday!

Your cabinetry is lovely and the polar opposite of my saws-alled & construction adhesived knotty pine constructions!

Yes, I'm in Calhan, West of Limon.

I think your Thomas looks great in the green coat. However, I am a miserable bastard when too hot, so I installed too much AC, more insulation than one should need, and the white paint to help reflect some of the 'misery' away from the interior of "Tomcat".

Ah! I feel better now, I love the heat! - can't get enough here in New England. No AC for me, just a couple of exhaust fans in the hatches.

Now I have to figure out what to do for screens.

Super Cabinetry
Wow! You really did a super job, especially on the cabinetry. You're right about white making a big difference in heat deflection, it really does. But vonslatt, I think your almond and green paint job is very attractive and elegant.

Both are fantastic! I wish I had a cabinet shop cause those are top notch!!
