I suppose the carpet/fabric on the seats really keep the cushions from sliding around, correct?
Have you covered fiberglass benches before for the same reason? What kind of material did you use.

Your work really does look amazing. I've really have to keep myself in check during my Scamp restoration and think "self, it doesn't have to be perfect and super awesome like Robert's--- just make it better than stock and more user friendly or you won't even get to use it this year."

Exactly. Ours will be a "full-time" bed platform, and I thought the carpet would provide some advantages. Indoor/outdoor carpet from Lowe's and contact cement. I've not tried it on fiberglass, but cannot see any reason why it wouldn't work just as well.

And thanks for the kind words.

After reading through this thread, Im looking forward to starting on mine in May. Robert, I work for Neonex Shelter Ltd. (who owned Boler at the time) in Calgary from about mid 1975 to mid 77. The Boler plant was just to the north of use. I was that close and never went to have a look. I remember seeing two halves sitting outside the plant waiting for their turn, I was about 18 or 19 and camping was the farthest thing from my mine. Anyway I wanted to say awesome job, the two of you have something to enjoy for years to come.
Vic.

I love the work Rob, and all the extra steps to detail.

I like that you took the boler apart top from bottom; although it adds alot of work, it just makes everything so much more simple, accurate, and clean. Something I might have consider when I start on my own boler.

Refering to the message about the cabinet latches: I wondered this too. If you look back in the thread, you can see one of the latches in an open drawer. I found this supplier:

LED lights

Robert,

What intensity LED lights did you use for under the cabinetry? Totally new to me and I have no idea what will be sufficient. I'm looking at some options at superbrightleds.com, particularly this light, and wondering if it would be good to have a 2-3 of these above the stove/sink and the front/back hanging cabinets. Just not sure what kind of lumens to go with so we have plenty of light if needed. Thanks for any help you can offer!

Slav

Thanks, folks.

Slav, your link shows exactly the fixture I have been using. As to how many? I used three across the entire front cabinet. Seems to be plenty for us. But, yo'll have to see what YOU like...

As to the other offered option, it is quite a bit smaller and less powerful (but cheaper!) than your choice.

Awesome, thanks Robert. I think we will give the nice ones a shot. Since everything is being done from scratch, I want it all to look good and work well for us.

Beautiful craftsmanship! I've gone so far as building my own home speakers but I don't think I could ever create such artwork. I love it!

where can I buy that sink/stove combo? What is it worth? Their website is awful. No online buying option and all of the links anywhere near Saskatchewan, Canada are not helpful. If I can find the place that sells them I may be able to get them to ship it to me.

thanks!
