Wow, luving the Uber mild temps!
Installed an entry assist handle, and secured the front end of the passenger side bed platform! Yeah!
Oh and also got some sound deader installed on the drivers side!

Update...

Things have been slow, due to weather and budget. But...
The bed platform work has continued, and they are more secure now, and waiting for the plywood platform.
I installed the backup camera system that works thru the GPS system.
I'm going to order the roof fan / ventilation system tomorrow.
Our neighbor across the way brought over his air compressor for us to use to install the walls and ceiling. Now if we could afford to get the polyiso for the insulation package...
Moving forward, if only at a slow pace... SUCH FUN!
Thx, Dan'l

I'm 6-2, so if I'm on my feet, my back is on the roof....

I have not put any up yet, the silver stuff there is Frost King duct insulation, the foam version, not Fiberglas....

I plan on creating packages by fitting the polyiso, then taking it out, gluing the reflectix down, putting a half inch layer of bubble wrap to the reflectix, then"bagging" the package with clear film type material, like heavy duty Saran Wrap. Then silver taping the edges, then install the package. Sounds like a lot of effort, but it will be more manageable, I think.

The plan is r1 + r6 + r6, foam, reflectix, and polyiso....

Just got back from JoAnns...
Found and bought some crafting felt, about 12 yards at a fraction of what I was going to spend for the higher grade stuff. This will be used to cover all the plywood edges and wood surfaces!

Also for our bed mattress cover, we picked up what I think will be awesumm!

I actually had a fifty percent off coupon, but didn't get to use it, because the felt and upholstery material was on sale for half off already!

And the lady that helped us, told me to text to a number and type in coupon for a 20% off code.....

WOW!
Thx, Dan'l

So today, I fixed a minor issue where the front passenger side fender had a broken bracket that was allowing the doors front edge to impact the fender....

Took forever, but I fixed it with an angle bracket and some screws, not GM approved. But it's fixed now!

Well I'm happy to say, I think I have finished the bed boxes.
Was out there rocking with Pink Floyd, Seals an Crofts, and Credence Clearwater Revival!!!
I bet the neighbors were happy when I closed the backshop tonight, LOL! Snicker, Snicker!!!

Now I need to go get the platform plywood...

Here are some shots of them in their new home.

And of course Sophia had to check them out for approvals and installation acceptance.

Those platforms are cool looking. Nice work.
