My Reno Is Done! (well, 98% done.)

I recently completed my restoration of a 1972 Boler, built in Earlton, Ontario. My wife and I took it to Sturgeon Bay Provincial Park for its inaugural camping weekend. Then just a few days later we hosted a small family gathering, serving sangria in the Boler. The 2% of the work yet to be done includes modifying the hubcaps to accommodate my new hubs, mounting the fire extinguisher, and making a couple of cupboard inserts to hold things in place in transit.
I have documented my work in a blog, and have included lots of photos and descriptions. Check it out at 72 Boler Restoration .

I got married in Reno, but that turned into a total fixer that was beyond my skill set so I had to Escape. Next I set my eyes on a Bambi, but she was already married to a real Scamp.

Totally amazing, you should be really proud of all your work. Just looked at your blog and the detail is wonderful, going in my favourites for sure, so comprehensive. Love the cushion covers!

Louis,
Just went through your blog. It looks like u have a brand new boler with all the premium upgrades after all the work you have done. Great job. What did you use for your kitchen backsplash? I've been looking for something similar for my uhaul.

Louis,
You and your wife did a GREAT JOB! I can see that it was truly a labor of love. I, too, am a seamstress and I can see that your wife does quality work. You'll enjoy your egg for years to come.
