flooring in,, cabinets doors installed..

I knocked out a few more things on the scamp list.... I apologize, the pictures are a little dark... But I worked on it a little late tonight on it (and every night.)

I finished installing the allure walnut flooring. I went ahead and installed it under the rear dinette benches (up to water tank) and under the front bench cabinets. It is added weight, but it will be nice to not have to deal with the painted usb when loading gear. I was lucky that i ordered three boxes of the flooring (with a few pieces to spare, if anyone is curious?)

I mounted the freshly painted cabinet doors with the new stainless hardware. And i went ahead and painted the furnace cover with high temp gloss black to kinda tie everything together.

So far so good, I have really enjoyed working on this little camper. And i know we are going to put it to good use.. I think i started out with a good candidate for a resto, it seemed really solid camper. It just needed some love...

As far as the interior goes, I still need to build our walnut tables and counter tops (thats the fun part). However, my list continues to grow.... tv, stereo, speakers, led lights, solar, etc etc etc..

So far here is the progress... Two weeks into the resto.... thanks

few more checks on the list....

Well,,, besides the whole family getting the flu.. and then having to have a tooth pulled after a week of excruciating pain. I managed to check a few more things off the scamp remodel list..

First off... I finished up the woodwork on the dinette table, side table and rear overhead cabinets. I made the tables out of 3/4 walnut plywood with 1/4 inch walnut edging (with help from Sean at O'donnell woodworking and the use of his shop). Also, I really like the rear cabinets, after wrapping them with the 1/4 inch walnut plywood.

I also finished a few more little things (not pictured yet),, I sanded and painted the tongue of trailer gloss black, I installed a larger deep cycle battery and box, i installed a new propane tank, i finished the trim around floor and base cabinets, I stained the entry wood "dark walnut" by screen door, I glued new caps on all rivets/screws, and i mounted my new tires and rims.... unfortunately my camera battery died while documenting progress (I will post pictures tomorrow).

We have a camping trip planned in a few weeks at Red River Gorge in Eastern Ky.... and I finally feel confident it will be ready for the trip (except for the new cushion covers we are having re-upholstered.. but maybe we will get lucky)...

One month down... and it is ready to camp.. I don't think our scamp will ever be finished.. as I foresee lots of up-grades.. But alas,,, I think it is SCAMP-ABLE.

Thanks again to those who have answered some of my newbie questions. And thanks to my wife for understanding that i am on a mission... My baby boy Neil's first camping trip...

Enjoy.. More to come....

Beautiful job, and I am just getting started on my Bigfoot.
One thing I would like to mention is to make sure when you use Zepp Wet Floor Finish from HD, or Red Max from Lowes, is to make sure that you remove all previous wax. I used bar keepers friend and used a lot of elbow grease, then TSP, then 5 coats of the wax with a WHITE fibre cloth. Takes a lot of work, but really worthwhile. I did this on a previous rig...The RV.net.com forum has a lot of info on applying the wax, but most important is to prepare the surface.

Hi: help me. What did you use as an applicator for your wax? I have the wax but naturally it does'nt give instructions for the way I want to use it. Mike

It is very important to use only a white fibre cloth and not any colour, as it may rub off. I poured a small amount of the Pro Max 3 or Zepp Wet Look Finish: the site below has tons of info on how to do it, but I will explain as well. I just put some in a small plastic container, put the fibre cloth in, and wrung it out, as you do not want to apply too much at a time as it can run and you can have terrible results......The first few coats may be streaky, but by the time you come to the last 5th coat, you can shave in front of it, or comb your hair. It is very important to remove all chalk and wax from the surface before applying the wax....I used bar keepers friend with a coarse pot scrubber (3 M)and make sure the surface stays wet, and immediatly wash it off before it dries. This is the hardest part of the job, but the most important. I overkilled by going over the whole rig with TSP as well to remove any residue then wiped it down with a sponge and lots of clean water, again most important. Just keep rubbing the bar keepers friend (obtainable from hardware stores (Home Hardware in Canada) and make sure you remove any chalk on the surface. The applications of wax is the easy part, as it does not have to go on in any particular way, circle, up, down, etc, but just a light coating, and once a year, only have to wax again one coat, without using any other cleaner...results are great and I have seen results from several other rigs and am very impressed. Good Luck (RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Search

Yes Jimmied is correct. A good wash with something to remove any wax, then rinse, next with the Zep wet floor finish. I just put some in a dish. Put your cloth in, wing it out and (just like your washing it again) a lite coat. Dries in 20 min and apply the next coat. Around the 3rd coat it starts to look like your accomplishing something, by the fifth it looks great. I usede Vim (household cleaner) to wash off the wax & chalky finish.For 5 coats I only used about 2 cup of ZEP.
Ron.
