M.P.G.

Posted 10-02-2018 at 09:07 AM by Speedojim

We enjoyed 9 M.P.G. gas from Arlington, Tx. to Galveston. Return trip was 11 M.P.G. My genius friend said, "The gasoline at the coast has less alcohol, and is fresher. This was a '98 Georgie Boy 34' pursuit. We will take our '17 Vista 29 LE, avg. 6 M.P.G. I will report any difference to substantiate his opinion.

Headlight adjustment

The headlights droop. I found out that it uses lights from a 1988 Audi believe it or not! I bought new plastic threaded sockets, part # 6317-11243, but there is no way to install them? One of the screws is knurled, not threaded, and one has its head concealed behind glass. Grrrr. It isn't supposed to be this difficult.

1992 Elante Project Rebuild

Posted 08-16-2018 at 07:18 AM by Lightfoot54

It is finally water tight so I no longer have to keep a tarp over it. The filon sheet was rolled up and first tucked under the rear lip. Then contact cement was applied to the outside of the roll and to about 4 feet of the plywood. After the glue tacked, 20 minutes, that 4 feet was rolled down and compressed. It took all day to do the whole thing 4 feet at a time. The whiteness of it is intense. I had turquoise circles in my peripheral vision after doing it. There are bacon wrinkles along...

Roof details

Posted 07-05-2018 at 12:23 PM by Lightfoot54

Not all parts of the roof are being completely replaced. The area over the galley seems solid enough to save, and it's full replacement would have increased greatly the scope of the project, so I am simply overlaying the existing foam with new plywood. This picture shows how the panels are lapped together with a mating strip so that they fit tight and smooth.
