Hi Matt,

I have the exact same units that Mark showed in his pictures. Unfortunately they're already installed so I can't readily get pictures of the hardware. It seems really odd that yours would come without it.

If you look at Mark's pictures you'll see 4 small black screw covers on the edges of each unit. Those pop off to expose a phillips head. When turned clockwise it rotates an L shaped plastic clamp below about 90 degrees and then starts pulling the clamp up to secure the fixture.

Thanks Russ,

Mine came from some RV Liquidator on E-Bay and it was a scratch 'n' dent model with just a little scrape in the glass. It only came with two of the four very thin machine screws with plastic washers under the heads. and no covers or clamps. The rest of the hardware is probably somewhere between California and Michigan.

At least it didn't scrape the glass to heck. I have had that happen once.

Here are the pictures of the Cool Cat heat pump/ A/C roughed in. It will get trimmed out and the panel installed to finish it off. As you can see, I removed the small refrigerator. I would rather have A/C than the small refrigerator.

I am also using the original refrigerator vents to vent the back of the Cool Cat. They are painted to match the camper color and look WAY better that the gawdy square vent that came with the unit.

LED puck lights to accent the headliner

Here is a couple of pictures of the LED puck lighting that I installed to accent the headliner and to provide light to the center of the camper. The headliner will be installed this weekend. The cushions came in today and the final touches on the electrical wiring are being done. I should have this Burro-stream wrapped up by the end of next week hopefully!

Mark what is the black running down the length of the area where the headliner will go?

And did you paint the cabinets?? if so can we see more pics of it.

The black is a piece of black plastic corrugated material that I added to shim out for the wiring and also where I will attach the headliner. I am putting the headliner a quarter inch off of the ceiling so that I could have a wire chase. I also needed that depth so that the puck lights will be counter sunk like a can light in your home. The center headliner is going to be gray material to match the cabinets and the exterior paint.

I did paint the cabinets. I am not really too impressed with the way they turned out, but they are getting all trimmed out in wood with wood doors. I am covering the walls also, there are too many screw holes and scratches that would be a pain in the rear to repair for a quality finish.

wall covering completed, headliner installed and lighting installed!

I have the supports holding the ceiling together while the construction adhesive dries. Kinda hard to see, but you can get the idea!

Looks good, what did you use for the runway lighting? and what is the material you put up do you have a close up of the material?

I didnt get anything done this weekend, as I had to go help my inlaws out and stayed at our cabin, but family is first. Tonight I cleaned the garage and am working on my porch light now.

I hope to get some work done this week, slow but sure, I did get a sheet of glass reinforced plastic this weekend that I plan to use for future floor repair on Burro #2 or some other egg that comes along.

Scott, I used 12 volt rope lighting. ROPE LIGHTS 35" PAIR CLEAR (2) 12 volt: eBay Motors (item 280540491730 end time Aug-26-10 06:53:23 PDT)

The center headliner material is corrugated plastic with a gray felt with black swirl glued to it. That assembly is then glued to the black strips that you asked about in the earlier pictures. The rope lighting is wired above the center headliner and glued in at the seam where the center headliner and the main ceiling meet.
I worked on the Burro all weekend trying to get it done. It was great bike riding weather here, and the Harley just sat in the garage.<_<
