Very nice! Can you describe the cabinets on the left side? Where is/were/will be the sink and stove. I guess it's an illusion because the top isn't popped up, but it looks like the top of the counter is about 4 ft above the bed floor. Is that right?

I can't wait to see it.

I'll try to shoot a picture tomorrow of the sink and cabinets. Joel put them back in. But must have taken that picture before he did so.

The stove and sink are about 4 feet from the floor - they are at the top end of the hard body. You can see the bottom of the stove in this photo on the left.

Here is a shot that was taken of the interior after the first cleaning prior to the rebuild. She was a little nasty and still needs some work. Looks fairly straightforward, though. Notice the rot in the particle board in the bed area... Soon to be replaced and reinforced.

Also - check out this original fwc ad. Interesting to learn that they were possibly offered at the dealerships...

Quick update - parts are coming together.

New aluminum sheeting in original style has arrived that will be used for the outside of the front wall (that's a piece of dead grass in the photo, not a scratch).

I also found a vintage aluminum sliding window for the front wall. It is nearly identical to the style of the factory windows on the camper and the dimensions are about perfect...

More to come..

If only I was better at scrounging up more cash - then the list of new parts would be longer

For a while joel's collection could have been considered a rival to the ihcs. If I'm not mistaken, that was before Mike had his first Scout...

Yep. Unless you consider this to be my first Scout.



I will agree though the property value did go up a bunch on coolidge st once joel left for college.
