Newest pictures 8.6.14

A long overdue post showing some of the latest pics. We really are narrowing in on the finish. The biggest piece of work to be completed is the hatchback. The rest is bits and pieces. We installed all of the low-voltage lighting and the long counters on the side. You can’t see it in the pictures, but the recycled tire flooring is installed (the pink rosin paper is for protection.)

CS Humphrey helped us out by applying finish to the walnut benches up in the front. They look fantastic!

This gives a sense of what the final quality of the MoCoLab will be like. A warm wooden interior space with seating for a number of people. The semester ended with some work left to be done. It will be wrapped up in the summer by those of us left in Lawrence.

“Look at that shine!”

Our polishing experts Aaron and Johann have been very busy making this Airstream look brand new! I’d say they’ve done a pretty great job!
