It's been a while. Busy in the summer but I want to get all the glass back on by the end of September. The wiring is spliced back together in the front from the truck plug. I tested all the circuits before I closed the front in. I also put a light in the front cargo hold as it never had one. I am using ruxol insulation. Since the front only had cardboard for the backing of the filon this will make the front a little harder. This front piece has the most bends in it so thats why I want to do it first. I got around to putting some LED flood lights in my shop & its better working in there at night now.

First off, great job. Several post back you stated using silicon. Never use silicon on the outside of a camper. It will not stay and then leaves residual silicon preventing any other sealant from sticking. Use the buhtyl tape on your outside moldings and then seal edges with non-leveling RV sealant. It cost more but is worth it and will last a lot longer. Use self leveling rv sealant on the roof or EDPM tape. Some will use both.

Thanks I"m not sure where I said silicone. I even looked back on my posts. I wont use buytl as IMO that is what causes problems. I have a 3M product that self seals when putting in the screw as it does when removing the screw. My roof is ruubber & I know what I am using on it too. Thanks

Insulation all in. The front is now boarded. I think we"ll finish the front insulating the sides & boarding then tackle the filon on the front.

Both sides I'm closing the front up. When I get that done its glass time on the front. The 1/4" luan ply makes it rock solid.

This is an amazing project. You're going to enjoy using that rig much more than a new one because so much of it will be your own workmanship.

It reminds me of that famous Red Green quote:

"If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy."

Unfortunately I'm neither, LOL! But hats off to you sir ;-)

I don't think I showed all the work from the beginning so here are some from the begging.
