Interior bench on passenger and front area. 

Hi Everyone.

 

Thanks for the continued interest in my build.  October is the month to get this thing done!!!!!! (or nearly done).

 

From here forward I will be transition my build reports from mostly writing and photos to mostly videos.  Yesterday we finished the passenger and front bench area! And I made a video of our expereince, a mix between informational and entertainment (hopefully).  

 

 

I hope you enjoy the video! I'll be sure to make more (especially on the canvas which I literally have 100s GB of raw video ready to go) in the near future.

 

I couple other details of the build I know might be helpful if you are tackling the same project.

 

- I used 1/2 in plywood and 1X2" pine to frame.  These seem to be the perfect weight for this area.

- I used the Kreg pocket screw jig which I am loving, those thing make a quick, easy, and solid corner!

Make sure you leave room to accommodate for the hinges if you want the lids to fit flush. 

 

Let me know if there are other details of this build you are curious of and I'll be sure to get back to you.

 

Thanks again for following along, it sure has been a ride. - Tim

Hello Living The Dream
Y'all's labor of love is evident, congrats on seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
At the end you were speaking of anchor for cabinet top. I thought of Velcro the hook side and it could just grab the carpet.
Will look for vid of first day out. Cheers

Thanks for the idea Russ.  I actaully did something similar with using velcro to keep my lifting mechanism up out of the doorway when in the closed position.  Maybe I will do what you say, I do need to add pull tabs regardless so I'll figure out it. Thanks for chiming in. - Tim

I had a couple questions through private chat that I figured I would answer here as well just to share the info with any others that might find it helpful.

 

When member asked if I was having issues with the self tapping screws and the old aluminum.  

 

I will say that I have had my fair share of "spinners" screws that don't grip and just spin and spin. You can do a few things if that happens

 
1- ignore it and act like its a solid screw (I often went this route)
2. grab a wider screw (go from a #6 to a #8) for instance. I did this a lot
3. add some sort of loctite. I never did this.

Tim,
Great job and continued progress. I'm really impressed with the extra help you get, what a lovely gal! Both of you will share the enjoyment of using the camper you both built. Can't beat that!

Quality referb. As a fellow "old gen" FWC owner, I applaud you putting forth the effort. I notice the discrete placement of a beer bottle in a few of the frames. I'm slightly envious, because in my life, beer drinking while working leads to a lack of production and maybe over consumption.

Really, nice work!

Thanks.  As per the beverage, as my mother says, 'everything in moderation'. Except for truck camper reno's those should be extreme and involving multiple years!
