Sweet Deal!
 
Any one have any input on the powerhouse 3100 or the honda eu3000is? I'm torn right now between buying a new powerhouse or a used honda if I can find one.

Damn, your dash paint job is killer. I know what my next job will be on the truck. That looks really easy other than the prep work. My truck is a 1988 p-30, so I get a lot of hints from your thread.

Here is most of the 1st coat of Paint, doing it ourselves so that we can spend the money elsewhere on equipment etc and need to get it done before it gets too cold. We are going to get some vinyl done and probably a whole wrap when we can afford it. Also below the window we are going to put a sheet of that embossed diamond ss with a radius on the corners at the bottom(the stuff we used on our rear doors).
 
2 more coats w/ some sanding and buffing should put a decent shine on it. We are by no means painters, but you do what you have to do.

Where the piece of cardboard is hanging we have a ss diamond embossed sheet in that exact shape that we will be attaching. Any thoughts on a best practice for this? I was thinking panel bond but we'd have to clear the paint from the area or maybe a few ss screws and some jb kwik weld or silicone.
 

 
4th and Final coat of Paint.

We ended up going we the phr3100 and I think it will work well for what we need. Planning on buying Nelson cold packs for the fridge and possibly 1 additional freezer to the cold plate we already have. I think this will aid us in saving on power consumption. Anyone have any input on making a generator box? Wood and insulated? Have a fabricator make an aluminum one? I am going to reuse the older generator door so that at least helps a little.

Really digging the built in remote start on the powerhouse and it is pretty quiet, it has a bit of rattle from the service panel but we will fix that!
 
Here is the truck with the new ss panel under the serving window and the shelf back on.

Wow, that is one sexy rig!! The best part is the rear swing doors I can't wait till I can replace my roll up door.

Thanks!! Roll up door was a deal breaker for us. I think replacing yours will make a big difference, but all in due time. The truck is at the mechanic for the next few days, can't wait to get it back!

Great thread, I'm actually pondering between those two generators right now as well but I'm leaning in the Honda direction. Where were you thinking of putting it? I have a few large job boxes on my truck so was going to dedicate one for power and install some heavy sliders to roll the gennie out when it's running for optimal cooling and exhausting. Keep up the good work.

Hey Polara, I hear you. The honda is the better machine and if I had the extra $$ I think I would go that route too. However, I wish honda had remote start as a standard feature and not an add on.
 
Originally we were going to cut out a section of the truck body above the wheel well on the driver's side of the truck, but, a (mechanically inclined) family member suggested we consider some sort of setup beneath the engine of the truck where you can still get to everything as they do it like that on some rvs. We also had some good electrical friends come out to look at getting us wired up and they were thinking it might mount well on the drivers side in front of the rear tire. 
 
When we decide on a final position I will be sure to post some updates.
