And these pictures show the nylon ripstop fabric I will use for the 3 privacy panels (also with grommets on the top to be attached to the same hook as the striped material.)

And the netting which is actually supposed to be for a double car garage opening I got at Ace Hardware on clearance (I got 2). It has those lovable grommets at the top!) AND metal poles at the bottom for weighting it down.

I will also use some tie down stakes for the netting and privacy panels.

How an axle is not supposed to look

Here's a pic of my existing axle. It's supposed to be 22 degrees downward, but it looks like it's about that far upward. My new one is on order from Northern Tool, and we're supposed to go camping this weekend. Hope it arrives in time.

How she sits now

You can see the interior color here on the door. It's fairly loud, but the idea is, "beach camper." And kids' playhouse in the off season. Wash'n wear. The floor is just primed here but the final coat is really just a darker shade of grey. Trying to keep it easy to clean. Definitely more spartan than many of the interiors I've seen here. We'll see what direction we take down the road, when the roof leaks are fixed, for instance. No sense putting in carpeting now.

Anyone still out there?

Huevo went into hibernation for a while, but has re-emerged as a project.

A couple of updates:

- That Northern Tool axle didn't fit, so Huevo is still a low-rider.
- The crummy paint job applied by the PO is peeling off, so I'm going at it with Rustoleum aluminum paint to attempt a faux-Airstream look.

I'll post pictures when able.

Oh, and I went back and looked at that camp kitchen in the link above. Awesome!

v/r,

Rick
