When I was in high school, we used to listen to Simon and Garfunkel almost daily. My friends and I loved their song Kodachrome the most and would sing along to it all the time. I don’t know why, maybe because they sing about high school or maybe just because it’s a happy song. Either way, the song brings back happy memories. I’m listening to the song now as I write this, and it has a slightly different meaning to me. He sings about how Kodachrome makes every day look like a sunny day. I can only assume he means the film, which they discontinued in 2010. It makes me think of Facebook and how people usually tend to post only the best and happiest photos. I guess Facebook is my generation’s Kodachrome. haha
The reason I chose to title this post Kodachrome was because I discovered the beauty of chrome spray paint today..and I will be posting photos, so it seemed fitting.
I wanted to paint the spare tire today as well as the hitch and bumper. While I was at it, I also painted the propane tank. I think it turned out pretty cool!
And now to the front of the camper.
I wanted to do a similar design on the propane tank as my camper will have (once I get it painted).
I also painted a few other details that needed to be installed.
Next, I set out to install my new Fantastic Vent. It proved to be a difficult task (what a surprise), because I had inserted some additional framing pieces underneath the skin to make it sit a little higher (to help the water run off) and they were making the hole too small for the vent. I couldn’t just take them out because they were all attached to make a square. So…I had to get out my oscillating tool and saw away at the sides until I got it to be big enough for the fan to fit inside. It took a while, but at least I finally got it installed!
I still need to seal it again with Dicor lap-leveling sealant. http://www.amazon.com/Pack-Dicor-Self-leveling-Lap-Sealant/dp/B00H554R98/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1409626405&sr=8-2&keywords=dicor+lap+sealant I don’t have any, so I need to pick some up at the RV shop. I’m keeping the cover on Junebug now anyway so I’m not in a rush to finish sealing it just yet.
The fan works great, and I can’t wait to use it when I’m camping and don’t need the AC.
I installed the Shasta emblem and I think it looks really cool! I was worried maybe you couldn’t see it very well since it’s silver and the skin is silver. I think it still shows up just fine though. I think I’m on the right track to finish on time now! The electrician is coming tomorrow to make sure my wiring is done well, and then I’m on the home stretch! Have a good week and I’ll be back next weekend!
