My wonderful wife has been putting together a blog to document our first Shasta restoration and she has done an amazing job. Go check it out at wagnersshasta.blogspot.com it has really been a lot of fun up to this point and I look forward to finally getting to camp and travel around with it!
Love your blog and your trailer. I posted a question there but will ask here as well. You said the birch panels were lacquered and I am wondering how they worked for you. Is there a big difference between the new and the old panels? I talked to the place you got the panels today and may have to make the trip to get some. Hard to find that 1/8inch birch these days. Thanks!
I have your blog bookmarked for future reading, when I have more of a chance to read. You sure do have a fun project, and it is good to see that you have a Corona-manager on hand. Looks like you are headed for a very nice piece of artwork as you progress. Love it!
Thanks shutzee I responded to your message in the blog but yes there is a big difference in the tint from the clear lacquer and the stain they put on the factory panels. We will end up stripping and sanding the cabinets to be light like the panels. My wife and I really like the light interior instead of the stained. Today I am rebuilding the door and will finish up installing the wall panels. I have a problem with my outer skin that I will post pictures about and ask some questions that I hope everybody will be able to answer for me. So stay tuned I will be seeking wisdom from those of you who know these trailers so well. Thank you all for checking out my wife's blog she really enjoys putting it together and loves our trailer, and corona!!! :-)
