RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

What a week. Dead computers. Gotta love 'em. Stuck working on several dead ones, with no time to work on the Moho. :(

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Wasn't sure at first but I'm beginning to like the stone look.Doing the end of the counter makes it look much better. I was figuring that the end of the counter would help to finish off the "look" of it, and I am happy with the result. Adding something to the floor, should help a bunch as well. I wanted to kind of separate this area visually from the rest of the coach. So far, I think it's on it's way to there. Thanks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, that is impressive. Literally can't see the seam. I took a good amount of time trying to get the seams nearly as invisible as I could. Getting close enough will reveal a few imperfections, but, backing away just a couple of feet and it looks pretty good. The "rough" look of the stone helps everything to blend in a bit. Thanks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I also managed to get the drivers side plywood installed at the end of the counter as well. I then spent a while trying to get the wallpaper on it, which took me much longer than I was hoping for. I did get 'er in there, and I now have the look I was going for. When a novice like me does self stick wallpaper, it just takes a while. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/driversidewallpaper.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

2 pictures for tonight. I don't know how I managed to get the first one so out of focus, but I did manage it. I have the plywood installed at the end of the counter on the passenger side. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/passcountertop6.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, today didn't work out like I though it was going to. Remember the 2 pieces of plywood that I cut and Lacquered at the end of last week? The 2 with the yellow arrows? Pics below... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/addedpasscounterend2.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/addeddriversidecounterend2.jpg Yea, those 2. I was planning on screwing them in today and then adding some wallpaper to the one on the drivers side, to create a little "corner" effect with the stone. When I picked them up, I discovered that I had not given them a final sanding right before the last coat of Lacquer, so they were not as smooth as I wanted them. Soooooooooooo, I sanded both of those this evening, and gave them another coat of Lacquer, and will fasten them tomorrow, and add the wallpaper on the drivers side. Oh, well. At this point, what's another day added to the build.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I like to let this thread grow for a few months before I catch up on it, gives more of a sense of progress and accomplishment that way. And seeing as I have an extremely important work project today, I of course just caught up on the last 50 pages lol. Looks great (well, except for maybe the wallpaper, but to each his own?), keep on keeping on! I have a boat in my garage that started as a weekend repair about 10 months ago. I might be finished in time for next summer, I do understand project creep and figuring out stuff as you go... Glad you are still around, and sounds like you have your own project going on there. Hope it goes well for you. If I only posted every week or 2, it would look like I was getting more work done, but I would not post nearly as much detail. Depending on the day, it may take me anywhere from 1 to 3 hours of computer work until I go through my pictures, choose which ones I want to use, then edit them, and post replies and post new info. Some days are less than an hour, if it's only a pic or two, and only a post or two. When there are replies involved as well as new info, it just takes a while. Thanks for following.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Need to update the spreadsheet again. 1 qt of Lacquer was an additional $15.88. An additional piece of 1/2" x 4 x 8 plywood, was another $49.85. The wallpaper amounted to $83.11, and came from Home Depot. That's a total of $148.84, and we add that to our prior total of $10049.95. New grand total of $10,198.79.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I'm not a fan of wallpaper, but that does look pretty nice. Have you decided on lighting yet? I have never been a big fan of wallpaper, myself. When I looked at this, it looked different to me. It had a "depth" to it that I usually don't see with most wallpaper. I saw this online, and not in person, so it was a little bit of a gamble, but after it arrived, I was happy with it. I have no idea how long it will last, but, hey, I'll give it a try. Worst case scenario, I'll have to take it down. Planning on Led's since we like to boondock a lot. The wife wants a couple of sets of string lights, which I haven't looked up yet, but will in due time.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Also cut and Lacquered the counter end for the drivers side. Also, the yellow arrow. That plywood will also get some wallpaper. I also applied more wallpaper at the end of the shelving, above the counter. (red arrow). http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/addeddriversidecounterend.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Finished my 3rd coat of Lacquer on the passenger side where the red arrows are. Also, cut a piece of plywood and Lacquered it for the end of the counter top. (yellow arrow). http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/addedpasscounterend.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I cut a piece of plywood to length today, and cut it just a hair long. So, I setup my straight edge to remove just a little more. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/barelycuttingplywood.jpg Here you can see how minimal the amount of plywood was, that I wanted to remove. It was only about 1/8", and I knew I had no chance of cutting that straight without a straight edge to guide the saw. The pencil mark is where the edge of the saw would be, without taking any material off at all. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/marktoremoveminimalply.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Question, questions! If you follow this thread you know that what happens tomorrow depends upon his mood that day. The answers are unknowable as he does not have a full plan, just a plan that evolves day to day. To those that think I am a hater, that's not at all the truth or I would not follow this thread everyday. I just like to throw my own opinions into the thread from time to time. If I was a hater, I would post what my wife says every time I show her the various posts considered to be progress! She's not a wall paper fan! I have a plan. Depending on how one looks at it, fortunately or unfortunately, when I gain new knowledge, the plan changes just a bit. What good is a construction project without some changes?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

When are you going to install the sink? You've already cut the hole for the stove, so you might as well do the one for the sink too. Did you put some type of finish or sealer on the wall before you put up the wallpaper? Putting wallpaper on bare wood can make it very hard to ever take off if you want to change it later. What's next after the kitchen area? The bathroom? The living/sleeping area? When are you going to re-install the black and grey tanks? I have given the plywood a minimum of 3 coats of brushing lacquer, some with a brush, and some with a roller. Either way, the plywood has a good cover for the wallpaper. Trying to pull wallpaper off of bare plywood would likely remove the top layer of plywood along with it. That would not be a good thing. Everything else will be done in 2 weeks! Lol. If you believe that, I also have some ocean front property for sale in Wyoming... I do not have the sink that I want to use for the kitchen yet, so I am not cutting that hole until I do. I think I will give the sink counter top a couple of coats of Por 15, just to reduce the transmission of humidity into and out of the wood, to prevent splitting. As far as what's next? Haven't decided yet. Could go either way.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I also lacquered the area around the entry door, along with the end of the shelving on the passenger's side as well. This area also received 2 coats of Lacquer, along with a light sanding, in anticipation of the 3rd coat, when I decided to call it a day. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/passengersidelacquer.jpg I hope to finish up the 3rd coat tomorrow, along with a few other details as well.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I added a few inches to the right side of the stone looking wallpaper, bringing it to the left side of the LR window. I also started coating the end of the shelving with Lacquer. I got 2 good coats on, and was about to add a 3rd, when I just decided to wait until tomorrow. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/driverswallpaper.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I almost bought a Pacer as my first new car. OK, maybe not the prettiest, but it was actually an awesome riding car. Very comfortable due to the wide wheel base but it was probably like driving a greenhouse when you where in hot weather. I ended up buy an AMC Ambassador (which everyone hated as well) and loved it. I am not (and neither is the DW) a fan of the PT cruiser but my choice were so far outside the norm that I completely understand why someone makes the car choices that they do. Never even rode in a Pacer. I just could not get past the looks. Lol. After driving some Volvo's for some years, (from the 80's), with a tight turning radius, the Pt was a welcome addition. The turning radius on them is close to the older Volvo's, which is pretty tight. I dislike driving stuff that needs 40 acres to make a u-turn.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

A PACER?????? Now, THAT was an UGLY car! Lol... I resemble that remark!;) I had one...1976...I was the only one on the block with one....took a LOT of flak the first time I drove it to work! Actually was a very comfortable car and built like a tank. My daughter loved it and drove it daily to a local college. Finally broke the timing chain at well over 100k miles. I also had not 1, not 2, but 3 Pintos! Kids loved them and no one ever died in one. :B All three lasted a long time. Lastly, that pic of the modded PT 'Chevy' is insulting! :R I had 2 '57 Chevys, a convertible and a Nomad wagon. Glad you had good service from your Pacer. Evidently, I wasn't the only one that thought they were ugly. Lol. As far as Pinto's go, as long as you didn't get hit in the rear end, they would run a long time. What's that they say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? When I was young, I had variety of 57 Chevy's. A 2 door hard top, a 2 door sedan, a convertible, a 4 door station wagon. Probably had a couple of more, but that's all I can think of now. I also had at least 4 or 5 Corvairs. Contrary to popular opinion, I enjoyed driving them as well. Even with some, ah, shall we say, less than cautious driving, I never wrecked one. As with all cars, there were a few things that were less than ideal, but, I like them, just the same, with the 57 Chevy being my favorite.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I got a really, really, really, late start today. Had a long computer call this morning. I managed to take a picture tonight, but don't really feel it's worth posting, so I think I'll just wait until tomorrow. See ya tomorrow.
