Wow, a Datsun 280Z for a tow vehicle. Well, I've seen Vegas in other ads

Looks like you got "Wimbledon White" over "Pennant Red" Nice!

Way to go Jason. You did well. I like the Tug & Tow combo and that huge side window sure beats mine all to heck.
We don't see too many 'Gia convertables around here either.

The Perris Pacer quilted vinyl is very similar to the vinyl used in the late model Compact Jr.s. The difference is the Perris diamond pattern is sown with two stitch lines and the CJ has a single stitch line. The Perris looks like a nice trailer!

Hi Jason,
You've done a good job and it looks great.

Now, when you kick back and you are happy with the inside, just think, you can consider this. I found this custom rig while we were staying at the Teklanika Campground In Denali National Park, this last summer. The owner told me that he bought the rig with the left front and side burned out. He did a good job. This is the 3rd year for the custom look. The wood is attached with screws and adhesive.

Hey thanks

that thing is crazy I hope he has a dry place to store it I couldn't imagine sanding and staining that beast every few years or so.

I got the new floor screwed down last night.
I'll post a new pic later.

Anyone know where to get the little rubber channel that covers up the window screws? I want to replace the screws or maybe even reseal the window but I'm not sure where to get that rubber. Mine is all hard a brittle it just breaks to pieces when I try to remove it.

I think that channel is fairly common to RVs and can be found at various RV stores (online or in real life).

I'd make a specific recommendation but it comes in various sizes and profiles.

I think if you Google something like "vinyl RV insert molding" you'll come up with some examples.

Tore out two layers of lino from the main floor today. Also removed the front bed base area so the new floor can go underneath. Oh I also sprayed undercoating on the storage areas unders the seats in the dinnete area that way when I store my bedding under there it won't get any fiberglass fibers on them I'll post some pics maybe tonight or tomorow for sure
