Looking good Fred, I like the longer A frame, that should work well.

Update those cabinets!

I waffled between a restoration and renovation. One serious look at at my kitchenette told me I was ready for an update. No going back now. Bigger drawers and new faces. Let's do this!

I like carpentry but working with fiberglass cabinets can be a little tricky. Any imperfections just show I'm human. Jen's got her varnishing skills down! It's great to have Ruby's help especially as she's the only one who can fit inside the closet.

Cork Flooring

In keeping with the 70's theme we landed on Cork flooring. I love the natural pattern and soft but firm feel. It's easy to cut with a jig saw and doesn't require adhesive. Surprisingly the lower level of the Pacer was mostly square and only required a few cardboard templates to match the angles.

1974 Perris Pacer Renovation

Hey Y'all! I hope you are doing well. I feel fortunate to have spent some good time with my family and friends this weekend, while working on the Pacer. The world is dealing with all types of crazy! Floods (Asia and Texas) and fires (SoCal) and bigotry (Charlottesville). Peace and Love people, Peace and Love.

So, since the flooring went down, we started adding the floor cabinets back in, albeit temporarily. It goes together like a jigsaw puzzle. It's great to see progress. I've been fixating on finishing the exterior lights so we can move this show along! Nothing is linear in this project. It's like hopscotch. One step forward, one to the side then another step forward.

This weekend we installed the tail and running lights. Lots of prep, lots of butyl putty and lots of love.

Perris Pacer

Dear Fredomatic,

I am interested in what/how you are redoing the Perris Pacer. Seems like you are working hard. Where in California do you live?

Hi Ilene. We are in Southern California. Near Los Angeles. Where are you? You're welcome to stop by and see our progress. Did you find your Pacer?

Hi Fred,

We are in Humboldt County - opposite end of the state. You and your family are doing a fabulous job on the Pacer. I sent you a private message...

I love the cork floor and that will go great with the natural finish of the varnished wood doors.

Lights really make a camper come alive don't they? Plus, now you can pull it out for the weekend and use your glorified tent even if its not quite complete.

Keep on keepin' on Fred - its looking great.

Peace
