I haven’t done much at all with the camper since the last post. I’ve been very busy with work, working long hours and sometimes 6 days per week. What little creative boosts I’ve had have been spent tinkering with the wood stoves…but at least they’re for the camper! I feel bad I haven’t been working on it though. I do have a tendency to start things and not finish them, but that’s not going to happen. I have some other cool projects I’d love to do, but I won’t until the camper is finished, that’s a little incentive.
I’ve never installed piano hinges before, and I just winged it for the first two floor panels. Just lined the hinges up and started screwing away. Worked fine. Then I tried the same method with the largest panels. Got all done, tried to fold them closed, and they stopped 6″ short…expletive. So I thought about how it should be done…the pain in the donkey method. Lay the panels next to eachother, line the hinge up, mark the holes, drill them. then install the hinge on one panel, then the other. Googled it after work, and yes, the painfully slow way is the right way. Barbara Streisand!!!
So I’ll get back to it soon. The good news is it’s all on the downhill now, though there’s still alot to do.
