Default Interior update

I am well under way in changing the inside of my Bird. Thought I would get some feed back before I start with the furniture. After tearing out the carpet and tearing up the marble I used spacia wood like flooring in the front, kitchen, and bath. Re did the bedroom with new carpet. New wall paper in front, painted walls in bath and painted over the wallpaper in the bedroom. I am having the driver and pass. seat as well as the couch redone in ultra leather. I removed the J lounge and am going to have a dinette made. After all that and some day/night shades to replace the electric curtains it should be ready for the road. The last two pictures are the original interior.

Looks like it's going to turn out pretty nice!

That really looks great - very professional looking! I wish I had the skills and the ability to tackle a job like that!

I thought our lack of skill in some areas is what kept Ernie and Ralph busy. Iam always to busy with little stuff.

Me, too - too involved with the 'little stuff", however, I am so inept I can't even fix the "little stuff". Maybe one of these days, I will approach an "apprentice stage" at least. In the meanwhile, I'll just keep the pros busy.

Default good to have friends

I wish I had all the skills myself. The only skill I have is the idea. Well I did tear everything out and did all the painting but the carpet, wallpaper, and fake wood flooring(it's waterproof and flexible) were done by a friend who is semi retired. It turned out to be nearly two weeks worth of work. The area under the steering wheel and the stepwell area took a long time. I now have a large jigsaw like puzzle to figure out with all the parts and pieces and screws and brackets and wires and furniture and battery draws and buzzing under the kitchen counter and water pumps and water filters and primus heat and outside lights and switches and gauges and etc. etc. etc. Can't wait to drive it again though. Oh yeah I forgot, I have to figure out how to reseal the windows so there isn't so much wind noise.

Very impressive refresh!

I will also say that I wish I had the talent necessary to take on such an extensive refresh.
My knowledge base is in electronics. I have no fear of installing gadgets or rewiring circuits. Things like flooring and furniture replacements I wouldn't even consider without expert assistance!

Good deal!
