'78 Scamp resto. pictures

We rearranged our storage under the counter to fit a (2) galllon water jug in a small secure spot to the right, another spot to the left (already there, just re worked them for uor needs) installed new shelf to hold our inverter for more space. and painted everything for a brand new look. It was sooo much easier to do with the sink removed FYI.

Finally finished the table after (3) coats of stain, (6) coats of polyurethane, and (3) times of wet sanding! Wow am I glad thats done. Still need to put the hardware on it and it's in. When I made the table, I made it 2'' longer for more room to eat on and sleep on. I know it doesn't seem like much, but I don't think any of us would sacrifce 2'' less out of our bed. I put a 8'' leaf in the middle so we could manage to get in and out from the table easier. when the table is closed w/o the leaf it is at 36'' with it closed with the leaf it is at 44''

I also finished reworking the closet this week. I tore the side walls, and front walls down to just fiberglass and started fresh. I also tore out the closet flooring to expose the wheel well, cleaned it and rubberized the wheel well with spray on rubber. I recovered the walls with 1/4'' plywood which was alot of fun mocking up cardboard pieces for a jig before committing to cutting up the plywood. I had enough plywood left to make (3) shelves, cover the bottom, and put a ceiling in it (also used cardboard first, thank god for appliance store cardboard dumpsters)once all the plywood was in I made a front piece which I cut a groove in, to the width of the plywood and glued it in. They will keep our things from siding out while traveling. Then I cut laminate flooring to fit and glued it in. should hold up to anything we slide around on it, and stiffens up the shelves. I wired in a new 110 outlet on the bottom floor of the closet, and tightened up the wires to the stereo and speakers that I installed last summer. I also installed bannana jacks to the left of the stereo to plug in small bose speakers that I picked up at a garage sale for $5 last summer, so we can listen to the radio while outside. The speaker holes make for easy access to the wiring instead of taking the ceiling down.
