86 Scamp interior almost complete

It's been a while since I posted. For that I apologize, although I have been busy and the 86 Scamp is almost finished inside. I still need to connect the city water connection and the drain, secure the cube refrigerator, and buy a couple of rubber backed walk-off mats for flooring. The floor is 1/2 plywood and I coated it with fiberglass resin. I want to be able to take the walk-off mats out and shake the sand and dirt out and sweep the floor inside. Here are some pictures.

Looks very nice Mike and oh-so clean! Be sure and let us know where you're getting the mats and how well you like them after you've used them for a while. A number of people seem to always look for nice and functional floor coverings that are more than the same-ole-same-ole.

It's beautiful, Mike. Looks so clean. I love the browns. They make it look calm and restful.

That looks wonderful! You should be very proud! What is on your walls? Looks smooth---not like rat fur?

That is the "elephant hide". It's a closed cell foam with vinyl bonded to the surface. I painted it with 123 primer which sticks to shiny surfaces without sanding and then hit it with two coats of Behr high gloss white. I am very pleased with the results. So much so that I am entertaining painting the exterior with the same prducts. Since a P.O. already painted the exterior with house paint, which I did not know at the time of purchase, there is no loss here. I'll let you know how brave I get...

I notice your tagline says '85 and your heading says '86
Since 86 was the first year for the ratfur I was just wondering which is correct.

Hi Ken

I isolated the intakes on the a/c unit with plywood. I used two 4 inch dryer exhaust ducts. This is the rigid, aluminum variety. I used two sets of dryer disconnect flanges. These were intended to allow access to the vent for cleaning. I cut the tabs off of them for flush mounting.
The base which has a substantial angle for condensation drainage and two triangles of plywood, all heavily fiberglassed to direct the condensation to the exterior. I simply drilled a couple of holes through the skin and it will drain down the outside. The A/C sits on the heavily reinforced platform. I sealed outside edge with black butyl strip caulk to stop condensation from entering the intake chamber. I then cut a plywood lid and I still have some closet space. All said and done, if I paid myself to do this, I could have bought a rooftop unit and it would have been cheaper. Since I am retired, I have time to putz around.

How right you are. It is an 85. Good catch.

Thanks Mike,
Great pictures they explain alot, I was wondering how to separate the two air returns. I was thinking of venting straight down but it is the same idea.
Thanks again, should make my install go smoother

Hi Ken

If you have any questions feel free to contact me. The way I decided to do it was a compilation of ideas that I gleened from many others on this site. I'm not sure I would have been able to do this without all of the great ideas and pictures of what others have shared. I want to thank everyone for sharing thier ideas, support, and encouragement.

Michael
