The hard work is done! Ready for your interior design! Work completed- New exterior painted, new seals and lenses on running lights and warning lights; side windows removed and resealed. Interior stripped of metal panels, original flooring and insulation. 2” spray foam insulation in roof, 2” rigid foam in walls. 1” rigid foam on floor with new ˝” plywood over. Engine noise reduction- lizard skin spray on sound dampener. 2 layers foam barrier- one in engine doghouse, one under custom wood engine cover; Rebuilt entry door to be hinged one side with locking handle. Relocated rear A/C unit to passenger side for better air flow; Pine T&G ceiling; Maxxair Fan; Factory tinted windows. I hate to sell after so much (unpaid) work but our limited vacation time dictates another route.
Good running condition but needs a set of tires.
22’ overall length. Fits in parking space-almost. 15’ x 7’-6” behind driver’s seat. 6’-4” headroom. Easy to drive. Will run 65 but prefers 58-60mph. Excellent turning radius.
