Got a lot more done, yesterday....It's pretty close to completion, but I'm gonna have to add some sripes or something to break up the monotany that is orange paint....It looks ok, but it's too plain.....I'll fix that when I get to the old decal box....Anyway....

After the striping or whatever I decide to do, it's on to the interior of the big box....

I also added some side skirting for appeal....And now, it's on to the interior work....And I do mean work.....

And a little side by side comparison to my other KW....I also connected it up to one of my cattle cars just to see what it might look like....

Really looks good, those decals are great.

 

Question though, when someone puts a big condo sleeper on a COE, is there usually access to it from the cab/sleeper? Or do they just simply have a side door? I saw an old photo a while back with one that you can reach from the cab, just wondering how rare that was.

I have seen one that was like that back some years ago, in the mid 80's guess it was.

He had an inflatable seal that went around the opening between the cab and condo. He also thad a window in each unit. The one in the cab wall actually was a roll down moved from his old W-925 tractor and the one in the condo swung up, almost as if they had mounted an aftermarket sunroof in the wall.

Here, I'll save you some digging, since this has been long dead on the back burner. She got put in storage due to some issues in Dec 2011 and me having to go back to driving this:

I was hoping that I could get back to a "normal" life by now, but it looks like I'm going to be getting back in the truck again instead. I just can't get the real one's out of my life!! :unsure:

 

Anyway, here is the link to the build:

And the pic of the real one is going to be modified and the pic will have the (hopefully someday!) completed truck in place of the ugly blue one! :lol:
