Hello from Lake Placid! I ordered our Snoozy 3/2016 hasn't gotten made yet. I am hoping to do a long summer trip in 2017 looking for cooler temperatures. I have heat induced asthma and just can't take FL summers anymore. Hope to see you sometime in the future once we're up and running!

Sorry I didn't answer your questions, as I only stumbled upon it now. I find this website very difficult to navigate. I'm used to the way FGRV.COM website flows. If you start asking glass companies in your area where to purchase the lexon mirror, they will be able to either order one for you or get you in touch with some company that will. My engine & transmission swap should be finished this weekend, and it will have a "tune/chip", but I don't see 30mpg in my future, but over 400HP & 420 FP of torque as realistic.

Good luck on the new engine, are you going to chip out the engine. A friend of ours did his and he gets almost 30mpg.
Where did you find the lexon mirrow? We talk to Richard Mickle yesterday, his wedding is on june 6.

Rick, I used double stick 3M VHB tape to secure the lexan mirror to the outside wall of the shower (when the bathroom door is closed, you see the mirror, and when it is in the open position it hides the mirror).
I was not having any transmission problems, I have elected to install a 5.7 liter Hemi V-8 motor and truck transmission in our Rubicon, just to make towing the mountains much easier. We hope to be at the factory around the 20th (give or take a day) of May.

The Refletix did not come loose, only the headliner, and it is because I either did not put enough glue on the porous material, or the glue just isn't made to hold up to heat, but either way I am going to try another glue. We are trying to go to the Lil Snoozy factory towards the end of May, then on to Chicago & Michigan, but right now I am going to have another motor placed in our Jeep, so it will all depend on how smoothly things go as to what our time limits are.

I'm sorry, but I don't remember how many linear yards I used, but I am going to have to re-glue with a high temperature headliner glue by DAP, since the 3M 77 has be letting loose. I added a wedge under the sofa frame to give it a slight backwards rake, and we use very large throw pillows to lessen the depth of the seat to back ratio, to make our couch more comfortable. I don't think that we will ever be using it as a bed anyway.
Best of luck with your projects.

HI guys. The most difficult part of the project for me, was removing the mattress, as I had installed overhead cabinets on both sides, right up to the bed area, making it very tight to get it out. I also had to miter the 1/2" plywood I used for the platform because of the same reason. I left the original thin plywood in place in the "nose" of the bed area, so I only had to use one 48" wide sheet, and this allowed me to attach the strap hinges to the 2x4 bed platform. Another Snoozy member we met up with in the Grand Canyon used this conversion idea, and ordered a nice "Queen" sized camping mattress from Kamp-Right on Amazon (we use two singles from our tenting days), but they also have "Full Size" mattresses available. Here is a link.

Best of luck on your conversion.

We have another member who wants to have a rally in Florida (Vince Barrett from Lake Placid) I believe he is listed as Vince and Angie. Maybe you could take the lead in getting a rally going for next winter. We can help with emails, on site work etc. I don't know how hard it is to get campsites in Florida during the winter but you all know the lay of the land so to speak.

Just let the glue on the reflectix & headliner dry slightly before attaching them together......did not have to hold it up.....two people would make the job a lot easier.....I'll bet.

I used 3M #77. Make sure you wear a simple mask, and cover everything, as this stuff is like a fine mist and gets everywhere. I closed up all but one window and had the fan suck air in, so all floating glue fog would exit the window. I should have taken the screen out first to save myself a lot of clean-up. I found that Turtle Wax bug & tar remover worked great for cleaning up.
You spray the area you want to glue to, as well as the piece that you are going to put in that place, but let both pieces dry some before putting them in place. I then use http://www.yourautotrim.com/ivmahu.html for the marine head liner, and applied it the same way as the reflectix.

RIck,

Robert and I had to get our wrap done in S.C. instead of Florida. The company we talked to in Florida was close to the city of Weekie Wachie. I am sorry to say, I do not have the information any longer. Because of our time restraint in moving to Texas from S.C., we choose to get in done in Columbia. I do have that information. It is as follows: Signs Now in Columbia, S.C., phone number 803-376-4206, Martin Izett, www.signsnowcolumbiaSC.com....

If you were to take pictures of our "Belle", any good company should be able to do whatever design you would like. I saw the American flag and eagle on a jeep in Virginia Beach. I took a picture of the jeep and Robert, along with the "Signs Now", created our Belle. It took a lot of going back and forth, but we think she was worth it. Keep in mind, a full wrap or half wrap, can get expensive.

Do you have a design in mind?
