Floor Remodeling: Day 1

By , December 6, 2010 2:20 pm

We started the floor remodeling process today. 


By the end of Day 1 we accomplished the following:

  • removed driver chair
  • removed passenger chair
  • removed the J-lounger (into 3 or 4 parts)
  • removed the console & drawer/lower panel area
  • ripped up carpeting by the entrance steps
  • ripped up padding and carpeting by the  J-lounger area
  • made three trips to the hardware store


The plywood looks to to be in good condition.


We had one challenge today: how to remove the seat belts by the J-lounger since the screws/bolts could not be accessed from the bottom. The other screws/bolts from chairs and seat belts were easily removed because they were accessible from the bottom. We have posted this dilemma on iRV2 forum, hopefully a solution will arise by the morning.

    Wow! That’s quite an accomplishment for one day. Go Jonathan…Go Jonathan (to the beat of music and dancing)! Not sure about your seat belt dilemma. I’d say, if you don’t intend on using them, and quite honestly, have you ever?, then I would suggest just cutting them out. If that’s possible. I’m sure theirs some type of power tool that could help in that matter.

    We can’t wait to see how it comes out! I’m sure you both are more than anxious. It’s been so long on your to do list. What ever will you do after it’s all done? Ahh…the dilemma. I’m sure Dasy can find something else to occupy your time 🙂

    You know, that is an idea! We have never used the seat belts.

    I was hoping for, “here is how you access the secret panel to get in the bolts/screws”.
