I finished cutting the carpet out and focused on removing the edging and cutting close to the areas near the closets. This is tedious work.
Feeling the need to clean my canvas, I vacuumed up the Chinook with my new mini-shop vacuum.
Removing the dinette revealed 2-3 inch seat belt bolts attaching the seat belts securely to the chassis. S showed me how cut the seat belt bolts off with a grinder. Sparks were flying. Satisfying.
After cutting cardboard templates, S and I cut down the mini wall to fit the little wall next to the stove. Previously, the wall stuck out another foot into the hallway area. This opened up the space a bunch.
I guess the theme of this renovation thus far has been to open the space up. Frankly, while the dinette seats 4 people, I can’t image too often having 4 people in the Chinook. And that’s why it had to go.
