I am very mixed on whether to reuse the original control panel, rebuild one, or just forget about it. The circuit board is alot like an Arduino bread board. I am capable of creating a new one. I could also just replace the yellow faded plastic face cover that is falling off, but the clock and thermometer may not make it back either. I could reinstall it as is and call it vintage seventies.
The professional fiberglass guy called me back, he won’t touch the ABS plastic repair of the shower seat, he said it won’t take. I guess I was only guilty of ignorance, not incompetence that my repair efforts failed. The other bad news is that I can’t find a used one anywhere online or via email. I’ve tried VTS, RV Revive, InlandRV, Airforums classified, and of course a massive Google search. I guess I’ll need to start going door-to-door.
I ran the speaker wires last week, so it seems I’ve decided to house the 12V car stereo in the cabinet over the frig, in the wall facing the office (note to self: upload a floor plan). I did a little research on car stereos and of course I want all the bells and whistles. If I were buying now which I am not, I would do something like this Pioneer or Clarion (4-5 stars, 6 channels, bluetooth, aux, remote control, etc).
Still trying to figure out the best way to do the 12V wall outlets. I found some large wall plates that have an oversized phone jack round hole that may work to insert the smaller 12V sockets I bought. The regular 12V wall sockets are too long for the space between the interior and exterior walls. It’s too bad the plastic is broken on the original ones, but even then I would need more of them since I have more places than originally. I’ll want to paint the wall plates to match the ivory/almond 110 plates.
