Progress on my 75 Chevy Class C
« on: September 02, 2016, 10:38:58 AM »
I started this adventure a couple months ago, let it sit for 6 weeks while I finished up the coaching season, got married and started the school year again. So I've been spending 3-4 hours a day for the past two or 3 weeks on it, the inside is nearly finished but don't have any pics yet.
This is where I'm currently at, only one coat of paint on the back sides of the camper so far. The front and rear are finished. I snapped the newest picture as I left my buddies shop last night.
I would list everything I've done so far, but you can tell with your eyes that It is coming along fairly decent.
I need to finish the paint job tonight, then add a little color to it this weekend hopefully.

I've got the paint 95% finished now, a few touch ups left and the some detailing. I'm going to put a stripe down the side like the original, but not the same colors.
Last night I did some work on the roof with Eternabond Tape, that stuff is incredible. It rained this morning so we'll see how it held up when I get home this afternoon. Hopefully I hit the right area with it.
The interior is nearly finished right now and after new brakes and tires, it seems to be running like a champ.
It made it's maiden voyage last weekend to Iowa City from Des Moines, which is about 240 miles round trip. I had no issues with it. I just have some minor replacement stuff to take care of.
Among those, I need a new driver side wiper arm... I've been looking online, but not sure what to go with because I don't want to order the wrong thing. I'm calling junk yards today to see what they've got.... we'll see.

Updated pictures to come...

Here are a couple more of my rebuild that I have been doing. It is now very close to finished. I've done all striping painted by hand. I'm really happy with the way this thing has been turning out. May not be everyone's cup of tea, but I'm okay with that!

If you provide the beer!
It was a lot of work, It wasn't awful by any means. Just very time consuming to make things turn out the way I wanted.
I'm very happy with where I'm at right now with it.
