Complete lil Bigfoot reno

Hi guys, It's been a while. I have finally found time to tackle this project. My 1989 lil Bigfoot is stripped to bare shell. Working on paint body job and powder coating frame right now. Stay tuned for more progress as I go. Cheers
How to attach photos here again? Thanks

Do you have the manual for the Lil Bigfoot? If not, I have one. Mine is a 1988.

And whole shell shoot. Whole body work and painting process took me 3 weeks almost everyday with some major interlux kote primer drying problems and countless hours of sanding. But in the end it was worth it. Super stoked with the outcome.

This looks stunning. What was the condition like before you started the reno? Do you have any before photos?

What are your plans for the interior?

I also managed to rebuild brakes and axel. Frame, drums and brakes sandblasted and repainted. Frame is powder coated but axel since there is a rubber had to be painted with brush. FYI axel is bolted on and spot welded so I had to cut it off and now weld back.

Stay tuned for interior. I'm going full euro look on this one with corian, interactive LED in custom upper cabinets, rounded 8'' sink with ,,real,, faucet. curved base cabinets, teak floor, list goes on... Pretty much I blasted 8 K on materials at this point. Will be posting here soon. This week I am putting tinted frameless windows in as a replacement for old sliders. Here is a shot of new LED tail lights. Cant decide if I want white lend on the inside or out. Most trailers have it on inside but i kinda like it on the outside.
