Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hadn't been on here for a few days and just now read about your stones. I am very glad you finally got some relief. I have had two stones and I know exactly what you have been going through. Thank God it is over for you. That last one I had, the doctors made me go through 2 weeks of pure hell before...

Re: Varnishing Tips

I know I used 320 grit but can't remember for sure if I did it between each coat. If the can said to do so, than that is ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Working on the interior of my Monaco was a snap compared to your interior, Carl. So many possibilities and you are definitely rising to the challenge. Your interior is looking great and I look forward to your progress reports. Skip

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.
