Progress may be slow . . since the tires
were shot (and not the correct type), and I couldn;t redo the bearings at the time, the trailer is 2 hrs away. But, work I must.
I had taken as much of the parts as I could back home to see what I could do. Using the old parts I was already able to order the trim & seal for the pop up (thanks R&P!). The sink and hand pump have been cleaned and work well. Since I had the laminate from the countertop and the side pieces, I thought I should work on that.
Ever seen the nice banners at a convention? The real heavy duty ones? Well, for the most part they get thrown out (trust me, no one wants a 'Ogopogo HS Reunion 2010' in 2013). They are heavy duty reinforced vinyl. I had the recycling guy hold some for me.
I traced the panels onto the vinyl and cut them out. Viola! I now have tempplates to use and reuse as I need! This stuff is sturdy enough, and flexible enough, I may be able to use it for the pop up until I can get canvas made (okay, I can deal with the 'Ogopogo HS' logo).
