Adding a Little Paint…

Below is a color swatch from Pittsburg Paints.

Well, it was another productive day!  I got a late start today but got some good things done.  I finished the bulkhead wall today by connecting it with the passenger’s seat belt structure.  It was surprisingly easy!

After that, I loaded up all the leftover styrofoam and Lauan plywood scraps and took them to the landfill.  On the way back, I stopped and got some paint for the interior.

The goal was to find a paint light enough to maximize the use of an interior lighting system.  Obviously chocolate or black walls would not help much for lighting.  I chose Pittsburgh Paint’s “Camel” color.  It is sort of tan with a hint of pinkish.  It is a nice, light beige color – soothing and adds a little light.

Tomorrow I plan to sweep out the van, paint the walls, and let it dry.  I don’t have all the trim up but that is not important right now.  The van will get painted and then trim installed.  I really want to get the painting done for psychological reasons.  Staring at dark Lauan plywood is depressing!

About VanTrekker

I am a former vandweller in Eastern Iowa who, for several years (off and on), lived in a 2007 Chevy cargo van. I still travel around Iowa with my tortoise shell cat, Jennifer Stefanie. Our favorite place to explore is the Country Heritage Community, the four far northeastern counties of Iowa (Clayton, Winneshiek, Allamakee, and Fayette). Ride along as we fish in pristine trout streams, enjoy fine home cooked camping meals, and meet new people. It's all possible on a shoestring budget. Happy travels always! --- Brad, the "Van Trekker"
