Hi Suz
That was just a little white spray paint in a can I had left over from:wave another project.I just wanted to see what it would look like after repair.I also wanted to show folks that anyone can do it.That was my first time trying something like that.

Hi All
Project continues---Counter top with sink,stove installed loosely and my 2 way fridge. Icebox/110volt.While travelling will use converter and power fridge or if boon docking,ice/generator.The blue stuff at bottom of fridge is styrofoam insolation.I put in a block of ice and it lasted 56 hrs in the sun in my yard.I have a drain in fridge to outside.I drilled a hole and set up a hose.Works great.

Hi Ches,
Everything looks great. I admire your stove top. Is that an old one that you painted? If so what kind of paint? Or, is it a new one? If so where did you get it? We've scrubbed and scrubbed our "stainless steel" stove top, but it is still rusty and pitted. We asked about getting it sand blasted and were quoted a $600.00 set up fee. We got a laugh out of that. Thanks.

Hi Maggie
Paint brand name is tremclat--Type of paint--Hi Heat.I got this idea from one of our members who had redone his stove.

This stove top had been bent and rusted .I straightened out and sanded then painted.

$600.00 for sand blasting is outrages.You could buy a few good stoves for that price.

Hi All
Photo of bottom of ice location.It has drain and stryafoam is shaped so all water runs to drain.Insolation is stuck in place using clear silicone.

Sandblasting stove top

Maggie,

Look around more for sandblasting. We had an intake manifold which would b e about the same size as the stove top done at a small industrial sandblasting company for $20.00.

Sandblasting should cost no more than about $20-$30. Here in Calgary we have a 'do it yourself' sandblasting place. It's about $1/min. I did the entire frame of my truck for $70CDN. I routinely go there to do bumpers and such, and $70 is the most I've ever spent.

Maybe they were quoting you on sandblasting and ceramic powder coating even though that's still about 3 times the price that should be.

I love the idea of do it yourself sandblasting place. Nothing like that here. We thought the price quoted us was their way of saying, "we don't do stovetops". We know someone who may get set up for sandblasting. It's funny, the only reason I'm thinking about the stove is that everything else is starting to look pretty good. For awhile there the stove was in first place, now it's falling behind. But enough about my stove...

Ches, your front table looks great.

Incidentally, I used the Tremclad High-Heat white on our stove-top as well. I found that it doesn't really clean up all that well. We were cooking spaghetti when the water boiled-over. It left brown stains on the paint which didn't want to wash or scrub off. Obviously this wouldn't be a problem with enamel.

Thankfully, there's lots of paint left in the Tremclad can so I can just re-spray it whenever it gets too stained.

CHES

:conf
Hey why replace the chairs? You can move them out of the way when you want and if you need more outside seating they'd certainly move better than benches. Just think of all the storage space on the way to camp. And they'd be way more comfortable than a little bench. Of course you'd need some non-skid pads on the feet. Think of all the hassle you'd eliminate with no cushions to upholster, and with more visible flooring how much more spacious it would appear. You could even stack them 2 deep for when any of us stop at your site.
:L Can you tell I'm not a carpenter?
Good luck with the renos, because I have absolutely no doubt that you will ignore my work made easy suggestions (read 'lazy'!).
Jean
