What did you use to illuminate the license plate with the blue color?

License Plate

That blue light is a little unit I picked up at Canadian Tire for about $12. It is a clear plastic backing with some blue leds directed through it. I thought it was a nice touch without being too tacky.

More Progress

Today I finished painting the interior walls. I put one coat of Kilz primer on followed by two coats of Behr Semi-gloss pure white. Here are before and after pics.

Floor

Since I had not run out of energy I decided to put a coat of Tremclad primer on the floor. That took care of the rest of my energy.

I did that stuff using Tremclad (Rustoleum) tintable water-based enamel. I wet sanded then washed with liquid tsp concentrate, rinsed and put on two coats. That required one 900+ ml can. There are about 50 colours available. I will add pictures when I start putting those back in over the next couple of days.

Window Work

I managed to put the original plexiglass and rubber seal back in the other day, as well as the name plates. The front seal was good but in the back one I found a tear that will leak. I am going to order replacement rubber from Scamp for both and redo the job. I will put the lockstrip on the outside at that time too.

More Window Work

I installed the driver's side window and the cupboard/range hood as well. I replaced the 3/4 plywood strips in the window frame and used new (slightly larger) stainless steel screws and neoprene washers. For the cupboard I used stainless bolts, neoprene washers and nylock nuts (as well as butyl tape). The other window needs some cleaning before I can install it. I also put new nylon screen in the frames. I will pop those in as soon as I have the windows in nice and tight.

This Is Fun

I installed the passenger side window recently and also put some flooring down. I chose the wrong product (peel and stick "planks") and may have to replace it very soon. It works well on the solid lower floor but not well at all under the table where the floor is not so flat.

Is it really peel and stick? or is it floating? I was thinking of buseing foating since I have a bunch leftover from redoing the house, but I don't know if it eill work because it sort of holds itself down by it's weight.

More Fun

The 'cutouts' in the benches and closet are from one of the previous owners who had a cd player and speakers installed. I am going to square the speaker cutouts and cover them with access doors of the same material as the cupboards etc. For the closet cutout I have a novel idea for a courtesy light in the doorway. I put the back benches in as well as the main cabinet. To install the wrought iron cabinet support I had to raise the roof more than a quarter of an inch. The original cooktop is all cleaned up and painted. Tomorrow I am replacing the propane line with type K tubing. I happened upon a local RV shop (Affordable RV on Centre Avenue for you Calgarians) and the owner has offerred to cut the tubing for me and flare the ends to save me the cost of buying a flaring tool. I have some heavy reinforced half inch hose that I am going to run the copper through for protection.
