And my Burro redo continues

Well I made my first small screw-up. Being in a hurry to get this thing done, I installed the birch sheet to the roof before staining it. Oh well, I'll just have to take a little extra time and make sure I don't get any stain on the white paint. As you can see in the first pic , the front window is in, curtains are hung, fantastic fan is installed and the overhead Burch in place. The second pic just shows how the '56 Ford tail lights look (and are they bright).

Gage, it's beautiful! Tailights and paint job Look Great also. Maybe think about using the FROG Tape next to birch when staining, comes off easily.

Wow - nice 2 tone paint job!!! Between it and the tail lights you're really making the most of the Burro's styling.

Gage,

You do a nice job. A real craftsman that you don't find much anymore.

I appreciate the fact that you "do it right" or don't do it at all.

Keep me posted on the results.

Bill

Progress update - Well the restore and up-dating is moving right along although a little slower than planned because of life getting in the way. It still should be finished this month. All that needs to be done is to make the cushions for the dinette and bed. Locate a piece of diamond plate on the tongue, and then locate the battery and propane tank. Iíve built a web page for the Burro and you can find it at http://gages-56.com/Burro.html Feel free to comment (but please be kind).

Oh Gage, what a really cute web page on your redo!!!! Your camper looks great! I love the tail lights and the little boxes for storage in the front dinette! Great ideas.
Well the paint job of course is superb! Wish I knew how to build a web page as good as yours. You are so talented!!!!!
