Really impressed with all you've accomplished in such a short time! It's looking great!

BTW, I can see all your pics fine.

Things have been moving kind of slow this week. Between work and weather, not much has gotten done.

Hubby did get the water lines hooked up.



I got to test it tonight. Sorry for the dark video, I forgot I could turn a light on. LOL




We also got the trim figured out on the new cut section on the front.



My back window came last Thursday, but I finally got around to opening it today. They made sure it was safe and would make it through rain, snow, hail, and even a flood. LOL Not only was it screwed every 4 inches, they used finishing nails in-between each screw and also glued every piece of wood. It was secure for sure.



Good new is, it fits! Now just to get time to actually install it. Hopefully tomorrow sometime. Will be nice to finally get the windows back in it.

We got a lot done this weekend. It was slow going during the week, but we made up for it today.

We got the windows in!!







I had the glass on the window by the stove replaced with clear glass instead of privacy glass. I wanted to be able to see out. I can always use something with velcro to hang over it at night.



We had to remodel the rental houses bathroom and had some extra plywood left over so we made the table with it.



Also made the covers for the storage where the table seats are.



Don't even have any food in it and I already have ants. LOL



Hubby made a cover for the toilet. This is not the actual cover though. LOL He changed it a bit, but this shows how it covers the toilet. There will be a another version seen in another pic.



To be continued.

Table is in.



We also got the cabinet doors made and put on. Well except for the big one. I ran out of screws for the hinges so need to go buy some to finish that. Also didn't get enough brass knobs. Will have to wait till Tues. to go get those.



Here are the cover that covers the toilet. We were going to put a thin layer of foam over them, then find some material like the table seat covers and cover them with that. Now I am thinking of putting some thin paneling over them, stain them, then buy some big thow pillows and throw them on top and around the curve in the back. I think that would be more fun then just covered covers. LOL





I also installed some more lights. I wanted some 12 volt lights above the stove area and also at each table area.





Gosh darn dog got into the act. LOL





To be continued..

All the cupboard doors in!! Just need to buy a handle for the utensil drawer.



Now that the wiring is ran for the new lights by the tables, I can finally glue the rat fur back up the roof and finish off the escape hatch trim.

We are almost ready to go camping. Actually I need to start going to yard sales to find some pots and pans and stuff that I can keep in it at all times. That and some other needed things here and there.

I went shopping for the Scamp today.

Found some cushions for the front.







They are lighter then the table cushions so I bought some matching pillows for that area. Kind of ties it all in.



I also found a Scamp size broom and tea pot.



Then the store I work at had these guy's on sale for half off!! Couldn't resist.

I did a little shopping today. Found some cushions for the front.





I still need to put paneling on the 2x4 frame and stain it, but at least we have cushions now.

They didn't match the factory cushions for the table, but I had a remedy for that. LOL



I also managed to find a broom and tea pot made just for a Scamp.



Then I found these guys! Couldn't resist at half off regular price!



The insides is almost done. Then we can turn our attention back to the outside.

Not much to update on. Things kind of slowed down a bit because I found a different project I wanted hubby to work on for me. LOL That is done now and it is back to the Scamp.

Today we got the little side wall put back in. Had to remove it and put new paneling on it, then stain.



We also put some fiberglass resin on the two bench covers. That will help prevent unnessasary splinters later down the road. LOL Got to let them dry and then can put them back in and put the cushions back on. That will be the final time they have to be removed, except for when packing for camping

Next plan for me, but I need help, is to put the curtain rod holders on. I'm replacing all the old ones with new gold ones. Just need help with the pop riveting.

We are still waiting on the door to be fixed and returned to us, so for now the Scamp has to stay inside and also can't be washed. Once we get the door back we will move it back outside and I can finally power wash it and try buffing it out. Then I think the only thing left will be pulling the wheels and having them powder coated, and re doing the wheel bearings.

Hoping to go camping in it sometime in August or Sept. We'll see.

Hey everyone. Long time no post. LOL

We took a little break from the Scamp. We went on vacation with the VW buses and had to get them ready to go and get packed. We are back on the Scamp now though.

Not much of an update though. Today we finally got it back in the garage and we took the old non wheeled tongue jack off and put a wheeled one on. We also took the wheels off and took the tires off the rims so we can take them down to my hubby's bead blaster that a friend has it his shop. Going to bead blast the rust and old paint off then see what's left and if all is good we will just paint them with rustoleum paint.

Look Ma, no feet! LOL



While we have the wheels off hubby will re pack the bearings and check the brakes.

Made some progress last weekend.

Cleaned up the rims and painted them.





Bought new tires, and greased the bearings.



Installed the table between the new front seat area.



Installed the final window, and hubby tried to get creative and painted a red box. This is where the vent used to be and we took it out. Didn't want an A/C unit. Eventually I will try to find some vinyl stickers and do something inside the box with them.



Installed the final curtain rod.



Back on it's wheels.



to be continued.....

I was finally able to give it a bath!!

Before



After,



The above pic is of it still wet. Once it drys it becomes dull again. Will start waxing it once I give it one more bath.

Before,

Today I went and picked out some material for the curtains. A friend is going to sew them for me. I went with a solid color do to the many patterns in the cushions.



It's getting really close to being camp ready!!

Nice work, the outside cleaned up pretty good. I noticed the rust mark on the door, you might try a little soft scrub cleaner on it...
