RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Doing just the counter end would make a different look where it doesn't look like a cave. And yes the lighter picture does make it look better. Also when the kitchen lights are in, it will change the look again. We like plenty of light, and normally use the "daylight" (or bright), led's, in the range of 5500 to 6000K instead of the warmish look like an incandescent. Once we get something at the other end of the kitchen, that will also change the look, for the eye. Like I said, fortunately, if we don't like the looks of it, we can always just pull it off. Some of the stone look will be partly covered up from the counter top down anyway. Hey, we have to have an "entryway" look coming in, right? Lol.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here is the updated manipulated picture. As I said, it's a little bit deceptive, since it was kind of a close up. I'll take another one from farther back, as it changes the perspective a little. Sometimes, it looks better to me, other times, just a bit "busy". http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stonekitchen2.jpg I only have enough wallpaper to do the end of the counter on the passenger side, but not the wall. The good news is, the paper is removable, and since the wood is covered with lacquer, there should be no damage when removing it. Maybe I'll put some up, look at it, and see what the wife thinks, and go from there.

That also means a spreadsheet update. The 4 quarts with tax and shipping amounted to $56.95. Adding that to our prior total of $10,198.79 and our new total is $10,255.74.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I ordered some more Lacquer a couple of days ago from Amazon, as I found it was cheaper than buying it at Lowes. Not sure how they pull that off, since it had to be shipped. It was only available in quarts. This is what showed up today. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/lacquer4qt.jpg Not sure why they were all shipped individually, but they were.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Too small. and you are making it look smaller. Usually prefer to not comment, but now you are getting into the good stuff! show your wife, with and without. I took her out there tonight, and we've been discussing it. I'll have to take a picture from one of the front seats, as it will tone it down a bit. Thanks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I agree with Bill. The kitchen is already dark, with no windows back there. The stone on both sides just makes it darker. Check out the updated picture tonight with more light. Thanks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

That might be too much. Kind of looks like the kitchen is in a cave. I understand what you're going for but not sure I like that. Yea, it's a little dark there, but it's kind of deceptive, due to when I took the picture. It was starting to get dark and I did not have any lights on. I have an updated picture tonight, which shows it with more light. Thanks.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Personally I would prefer real wood over fake stone. Thanks for keeping us updated! I also like the look of wood, however, in this case, I thought the "stone" look in one area would help break up the look just a bit. Thanks for following!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here is a photo that I manipulated just to see what the end of the kitchen might look like if I added wallpaper to the passenger side of the cabinets. It does what I thought it would do, which is to visually separate the kitchen and the living areas. It gives the illusion that the room I am in, ends right there. Still don't know if I like it or not. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/stonekitchen.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

And now, it's time for my magic trick. (Snaps fingers)! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/cleanedfront.jpg It's amazing how long it takes sometimes to clean things up, and organize stuff that has been sitting for a while. Yes, that's all I got accomplished today, although it took several hours to do.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Look at this Mess!!! Well, not really. The shelves are Gone! Yup. I removed all of my tools and goodies that were here, and moved them to the shelves in the kitchen area. I then proceeded to dis-assemble the shelves I had made for this area. I had only screwed them together with Kreg screws, and did not use any glue, since I knew these would be temporary. More cleanup of this area tomorrow. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/shelvesmissing.jpg OMG! Thanks for the laugh! :)

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

As I was sitting in the moho today after moving my tools, I was looking at this. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/driversidestone.jpg As I was just looking at the rear of the coach, it dawned on me, that if I added some "stone" to the passenger side..... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/addedpasscounterend3.jpg Adding that to this side would kind of "visually" separate the kitchen and the living areas. The more I looked at it, the more I kind of liked the idea. I'll have to see if I have enough left over, or if I have to buy another roll. What do ya think? Sound like a good idea?

What's that you say? You are convinced I have lost my mind? Well, I must have some company somewhere....... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I offered to build my wife a sink that would match the shape of the frying pan we have, plus just enough to allow a hand to get to the handle and remove the pan, but, alas, she said no. (sigh). Lol... As such, I'll have to have one that matches roughly the size of this entire piece of plywood, so we can get the frying pan in the sink, plus some extras. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/sink.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here we go with more of those goodies on the drivers side, again with room to spare. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/driversshelves4.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So, here are some of the goodies from the shelves in the front, with plenty of room to spare. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/passshelves.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

This is another one, that was about 9 months in the making. This is a piece of copper tubing. I spun it in a drill, and cleaned it with sandpaper to take off tarnish look. I then coated this with 3 coats of (drum roll please), yes, you guessed it, Por 15. This is the clear Por 15 rust preventative. That the stuff they claim completely seals out moisture. After letting this sit for about 9 months in the moho, with no heat, nor ac, with plenty of humidity during rainy times, and it still looks just like it did when I coated it. No areas showing any discoloration from moisture. SOOO,,,, that opens up some possibilities for using copper inside, and still maintain the non-tarnished look! Wahoo... http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/copperpor15.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here is a shot of the end of the wood and the aluminum angle. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/alumandwood.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/alumandwood2.jpg As I said, this was 3/16" thick aluminum, so if I had used 1/8" thickness, I could have saved about 1/3rd of the weight. Obviously, that would also mean less strength, so it depends where it's being used, as to whether it would be safe or not.
