Vintage RV Adventures Now its 2022, our vintage RV motorhome salvage rebuild project lovingly named Indiana begins a new year. In this video we continue with the from scratch kitchen build, we tackle the painting of the internal cupboards, including compressed air spray painting, and Rob continues with his woodworking skills, and takes to making something special out of wood for the motorhome. 🛠🖌

jiwawa Yep, I'd say you'll definitely need stays!

You've made great strides with it.

Happy Christmas!

JanHank I will be very surprised if you donīt need them John, sometimes you will need 2 hands to take something out of a locker, unless of course you are both very tall and can balance the door on your head

I intend enjoying this Christmas with my 3 visitors, I started to prepare food in advance while I have plenty of time and then I can spend more time with them. I have table games planned Skyjo is my favourite game at the moment.

Happy Christmas to you, rest up ready for the next onslaught in the van.
B.T.W. I belong to a US motorhome forum in Germany and on facebook, I have met some really lovely people this year including the couple and son coming for Christmas.
Donīt forget Smoke and monoxide detectors.

Although he was a precision engineer he loved working with wood, this house is full of it.
Watching you two working is bringing back so many memories.
Hi Jan.

We have had a nightmare selecting the right quality wood from the local store. Some had lot of splits, chunks missing from them, and shaped like a bow! If for example we bought 8 pieces, I would say we would have been sorting through about 50 pieces to get the best ones. We did manage to get some at a fraction of the price for accepting some defects that we could work with, where we cut them up for small infill pieces.

We have not decided on door stays as yet. We are going to see if we need them when we start to use the motorhome. If we need them its an easy fix.

It is nice to hear that in some way we are bringing back some lovely memories for you.

We hope that you have a lovely Christmas.
