Just an update on some of the projects that I have finished. I manufactured a temporary door until my fiberglass door comes in. I finished the table and the sleeping area in the back

Still searching for metal rings that go around new Windows. I could make them out of wood. We will see.

1977 Recessed Look

Fabricated this door until new door arrives. 24 in by 68 in. Door skins have been coded and fiberglass resin and sat out to dry for 24 hours. Composite decking material was used on both sides of door (no decay).Click image for larger version

Um... Not. More like knocking it out. Incredible pace for a build that began in January with nothing but a shell and bent up frame. I love the lines on the Amerigo. Way to think ahead with the 7 inch board for later electrical runs. Keeps you up at night thinking of these things doesn't it? Build it, take it apart, build it, take it apart... then actually go out to the camper and do something. Lol.

Very impressive work.
