I just came across this thread. Both of you (you and your sister) have done a fantastic job. I am never going to undertake something like this, but I like many of your ideas and I am always thinking of incremental improvements on my Scamp. Thumbs up!

Thanks Paul, Itís sites like this one (fiberglassrv) that push us to always try to do better. Itís a project now, but canít wait for the day of completion, just to take it out and have some fun.

[QUOTE=Seaross;676961]I am installing Leatherette, but after testing Leatherette glued to foil, I could see the shape of air cells on Leatherette, so to fix that I am glueing 1/8 white felt and than will glue Leatherette. Thatís the plan. Waiting for warmer weather to do gluing.

Ross, google marine headliner, and you will come up with a thin foam backed vinyl. I believe I saw it at west marine.

Thanks David, I did see that but had already purchased my Leatherette. Now that I have found the felt I am doomed in working double ( glue process ). Since I purchased everything real cheap it will probably cost me more because of the price of glue. And thatís not counting my time. Projects are a learning curve , trail and error, I just may be a little smarter after this project. Lol

Will be changing motor and mount for my tv , using a drill motor on a treaded rod takes to much time to rise and makes to much noise.

Changing for a window mount motor and frame , much faster and a lot quieter thus savings on battery reserve.

If there's nothing on TV you can always watch it go up and down.

The weather is warmer today so started glueing the felt to alu bubble foil , just hope the wrinkles in felt will not show through Leatherette. If they show I will need ideas to cut them out.

You will not be able to continue tomorrow, the cold and the snow come back and they announce -17C for Sunday.
You're going to have some to complete, that's fine.

ID:	115091 the matching should be pretty good.
Now just wondering should I personalize my tire with white wall and caddy shack lettering or is that just to much.

Today started gluing Leatherette to felt , a lot of work to hide defects. But I will settle with this since this is not my trade, hoping my wife will hide defects with decorations. I am sure that it wonít show that much once completed.Click image for larger version

Worked on back counter wall, did not want to place backsplash, so decided to stay with the rustic look. Will have to do some wood tinting, but still have not decided what colour tint.

Today worked on spare enclosure and led tail lighting. Could not find right size red led lights for my spare bumper caddy shack enclosure, so I decided on making them on my own. Here or a couple of pictures.

Another nice job Ross. If you didn't already have a name on it, "Nothing Off The Shelf" would have worked too .
