    I ordered marine grade covering for the sprinter van and have left over for the troopy. It's similar form as the Malec. Very durable and easy to clean. Salt and UV protected.

    Got some LEGO parts for the body. OEM body parts from Japan4x4. Dave provides amazing service. Quick, reliable and with a smile. I think except the frame rails, it’s all ‘new’ parts on this build. Parts are headed to the body shop. Next month it will be 12 months since it left us on this...

    I am working on the troopy with hydronic Espar. There is a deal on Amazon and I purchased one (almost 1/2 price). I can help you set it up for water to air and instant hot water. Do you have room under the rig for a big water tank? I am planning to make a 25 gallons tank for the troopy with...

    Just got the hydronic diesel heater system bits. Some assembly required. I still need the water to air + fan heat exchange. It will be a separate 3 gallons glycol system insulated, 3 gallons will give it enough mass so the heater run cycles will be longer. I need to figure our the best...

    I have a good friend that I lent him the money to start an industrial paint shop. Payoff was that he sand blast and powder coats everything for free. It’s an easy chose for me (except picking which color)😀

    We are extremely happy with the industrial power coating we did on the cabinets in the 80. 4 years and 75K miles of adventure travel and they look new. I am not very familiar with IMRON coating.

    I'm going through the tedious process of restoring one, and decided to do a hydronic system. Also, always worried about having these heaters inside the cab. I know they are designed for this... I just got a really good deal on a hydronic Espar that we also used in a sprinter van. I am using...

    Just got the folding table that attaches to the rear door from GP Factor. I did not remove the protection off the stainless. I can not say enough good things about the product. It's more than what I expected. Also I attached a stainless mesh under the vents in front of the windshield. The...
