Nice work Terry.

Did you happen to get any pics before you put the fiberglass in the belly band area?

How tall is your garage door? Did you have any issues getting your trailer in there? I have a 8 foot tall door (less the little bit where the door hangs down)...but have not tryed it yet!!

What are your plans for the out side finish?

Do you want to sell a small bit of the t shaped inside trim? I need a piece around 5' or so....I will glady pay shipping and what ever fair price you come up with.

I recently replace my flooring in our 4500. I found a product at Home Depot called "cuchion step" , it is a thicker flooring that is not supposed to curl up on the ends and sides....will post pics when I can. Not too fancy but a up-grade compaired to the junk before! I used the old flooring as a template to cut the new stuff.

Good luck with your reno

Kevin

i know my spelling is not the best!!

KevinWA,
If you are using Firefox there is a built in spellchecker.
It helps me all the time.

Kevin ill have to look to see if i got pics. The flooring im going to use is the thicker click flooring. I know i used the short hair fibre glass when i did where the belly band used to be. That was the longest part of the whole job as to what i have done. To get it inside my garage i was lucky just flated my tires and put it in with my 4 wheeler. Good ole Honda. But when i take it out i followed another thread i beleive was on here. I made small wooden wheels to pull it out as the new vent im putting on will be a little higher. I got new pics to put up i just dont know how to resize them or if anyone that can for me send me there email to my inbox ill send them right away. That would be appreciated. Oh the t-trim i learned a valuable lesson. When i buy another to redo dont throw this stuffaway!!!!!

Terry.
I use an easy and free image editor called Paint.net. You can re-size an image in about 30 seconds with it. I have used it for about a year now without any problems at all. It is super easy to use for basic image editing.
