The 8 Things E3 2019 Showed Me About The Future of the Games Industry

first things first when I got home from LA from e3 I found that my display –tz– had arrived and this time there which Reno that's right City project red has actually partnered up with dis plate to make official City project red displayed so there's a whole bunch of like witches stuff there I'm sure we'll get some cyberpunk stuff there eventually you can click the link in description below to like check out the whole range of stuff that I recommend and it's really good and I really rate it and that's the end of the promo on to the video so III is over I was there I was in the crowd for all the big events except for the Bethesda and ei once since they wouldn't let me in the building almost everything that was playable on the show floor I played it it was an absolutely absurd five days of non-stop video game euphoria and had I not been loving every second of it I likely would have collapsed in a heap on the show floor somewhere between the Bethesda booth and the pretty big empty space formerly known as Sony so let's discuss the winners and losers of III 2019 so with that other way let's talk about something actually interesting the future I want to talk about what this III means not just for 2019 not just for 2020 and not just for 2077 I want to talk about where each of the publishers developers and console manufacturers are headed in the longer term and what those individual choices will mean for the industry as a whole the industry is about to go through a massive change perhaps the largest since Xbox LIVE revolutionized the online experience on consoles opening the path for both mainstream online multiplayer and new monetization through DLC and microtransactions I'm talking about subscription models I'm talking about the evolution of the live service video game I'm talking about streaming platforms I'm talking about the fact that if you want to play Halo Infinite on the new Xbox Scarlett you don't even need to own the new Xbox scarlett you just play it on your phone trust me things are about to get really weird in Los Angeles at e3 2019 I peered into the future ladies and gentlemen here are the eight trends that I saw there that I think will define our industry over the coming years four years now Live Services has been the catch cry of every triple a publisher keen to invest the work to develop a triple-a game and then monetize it long after that avoiding the need to invest the money into the development of a sequel like they did back in the olden days don't get me wrong not all life services are bad in fact if you look at each individual live service game in isolation actually pretty good they provide more content for eager fans to enjoy a price is typically cheaper than a $60 sequel would demand but baked into this whole equation of the microtransactions the over-promised under delivering updates the confusing carving up of content packs and the strain it puts on developers many of whom described a forever changed games development environment one that more resembles the permanent crunch typically reserved for release windows it's been said many times that live services are the MMORPG of this generation and I fully agree with this the goldrush bubble of yesteryear popped when developers realized that feeding the beast was too expensive and the consumers only had time for one MMORPG anyway so 10 of them trying to compete against each other was always going to end up in heartbreak for at least most of the contenders from what I can see 2018 feels like the year that the dam broke and the publishers wised up to the realize that live services just aren't the smartest play anymore from the teething issues the destiny and division franchises to the collapse of Fallout and Bethesda's brand bleeding it to the disastrous 2019 launch of anthem it's become painfully clear that these high-risk rolls of the dice just aren't good business anymore that's why you saw comparatively fewer live service games announced at e3 2019 we had Phantasy Star Online 2 but that's a port of a Japanese game released back in 2012 the only game that proudly took to the stage to declare itself a live service with Square Enix is Avenger game which had perhaps the most disastrous reveal of the entire show owing to some truly bad character design and the desire to crow about their life service elements and their ps4 exclusive content before showing us any actual fucking gameplay I saw the gameplay by the way it's actually pretty good kind of weird they didn't show that but anyway let's focus let's continue with the video over the last year live service has become a dirty word or two words and that's why the Avengers revealed felt so on the nose people are tired of road maps and big promises that sort of know that they're getting a complete package on day one The Avengers explicitly promised us that we weren't getting the complete package on day one and we're all wise enough to see through that now I don't trust any road map to deliver us the Hawkeye that I know we deserve while we aren't seeing new live services coming we are seeing the maturation of the live service model destiny 2 is going free-to-play the division 2 announced it's coming content warframe is gearing up for its next major expansion final fantasy 15 is about to drop its big expansion World of Warcraft has its next big content drop happening like next week Borderlands 3 is coming battlefield is dropping its new maps and I'm sure there's plenty of others I've forgotten for the moment these games have found their audiences and will continue to deliver content to none of these games are going anywhere but nor are there new games announced to join their ranks any time soon the mature raishin of this model poses a significant challenge to publishers over the last 5 years all of them have invested heavily in a business strategy that's beginning to feel outdated and overcrowded it's all the more challenging for them given that live services have been extremely lucrative since the incremental spend required to make a dollar is significantly more attractive than needing to invest in a big-budget sequel it also means that they could push out unfinished games and just tossed us a roadmap and say shut up don't complain there's a roadmap and that's obviously cheaper than like shipping a complete game with people cotton anon to all of this publishers are gonna need to figure out how to plug this hole in their profit and loss sheet pretty damn quickly either way I'm glad this trend is on the way out I've loved many of these life service games but I'm at the point where I someone who plays video games for a living does not have the time to keep up with all of them I'll be glad to see the work of talented developers redirected towards more finite experiences releasing complete games without roadmap promises and microtransactions at least that's the dream the rapid decay of Bethesda and EA as business models change so 2d publishers this year we saw the regular press conference events we always do filled with the cringe we've come to expect in PC gaming it's not the size of your weapon it's how you use it but buried in the tea leaves with some important clues about where each of these entities are headed EAS greatest kindness this year was that they had the decency not to subject us to another press conference like last year's what with its 20-minute mobile game showdown and sports bloated blasting of boringness despite the absence of a press conference EA still showed off gameplay for Jedi fallen order which looks kind of meh if you ask me as well as battlefield 5 maps a new character for apex legends and new Sims 4 expansion and new modes for FIFA and Madden I can't help but feel that EA is slowly backing away from this whole core gaming thing battlefield 5 and anthem both bombed in the road to recovery for both of those games is long and expensive apex legends launched strongly but its revenue is declining sharply as it's crushed by the sheer volume of content that fortnight manages to push out on a regular basis sure we have fallen order coming but with the promise of no microtransactions and no multiplayer you get the feeling that EA just kind of letting this happen just to shut everyone up rather than pivoting their business towards this brave new world of good games for a fair price you saw Xbox last year proudly declared that they will not abandon the core gaming space they yelled it loud and proud and bought a ton of studios to make that happen what an EA due this year when faced with criticisms from gamers calling them out of touch and irrelevant they just cancelled their press conference I don't know I just get the feeling that EA know which side their bread is buttered on when faced with a choice but making billions of dollars by scamming sports fans who won't complain or squeezing out a tiny fraction of that by propping up Bioware dice and respawn all the while suffering the hostility of an angry core gaming audience I think I can guess which way the board of directors is gonna land on that one I think the same transformation is mirrored in Bethesda who in the span of just a few years has gone from one of the publisher darlings to an absolute pariah fallout 76 sits at the center of all of that and no amount of paid screaming from that dude at the front he's going to obscure the fact that fallout 76 was the Chernobyl to Bethesda's reputation as a nuclear power in gaming it's radioactive shadow looms large over every word Todd utters and every promise Bethesda days to make unbowed Bethesda announced they'd be adding human NPCs to fallout 76 as well as a battle royale mode because if there's one thing that fallouts horrendous weapon mechanics and PvE focused community we're crying out for it's a battle royale mode funny story we were actually staying in the same hotel as the fallout 76 development team and they're made for some very very awkward elevator rides beyond this Bethesda felt the need to add further insult to injury by rubbing our faces in their mobile Elder Scrolls garbage and destroying our childhoods with even more mobile garbage a Commander Keen mobile game that absolutely no one asked for more like command and not keen am i right guys much like EA because you are doubling down on their mobile strategy and they're doing it in a way that's designed to appeal to the broader mobile market rather than to us as core gamers I'm sure that Bethesda will make a lot of money doing this but it's certainly not for us personally I'm super interested in the games that Bethesda are publishing like ghost wire protocol death loop Wolfenstein Youngblood and doom eternal but I don't care in the slightest about anything that Bethesda themselves have a hand in so starfield better be pretty damn good if they're gonna win back the core gaming audience I went to the PC game show which is run by PC gamer but this year for the first time was actually sponsored by Epic Games I went primarily because the event was open to the public and I wanted to hear some booing sadly there was no booing there were a few awkward silences whenever epic was mentioned in fact the event went to great lengths to even avoid using the word epic instead choosing the blanket term sponsors where one might have expected a specific epic shout out well I first want to thank our sponsors for helping make this event possible without their support this event would not happen each year so thank you so much I watched from three rows back as more how-to sorry chivalry to was revealed and announced as an epic exclusive and I was there when Shenmue sold out its backers by going epic exclusive subsequently refusing to offer refunds to any customers disappointed by this bait-and-switch very very dick move as I listened to all of this and I saw how dirty a word epic has become and I saw the borderlands posters making fun of the deal it dawned on me that epic will losing this battle and they were losing it big no one likes epic no one I don't hate them as much as other people do because I believe they have the right to do whatever they like they're a business you know whatever but I don't like them either because of the way that they've actively encouraged Kickstarter's to abandon their communities that have made their games possible that's on those developers absolutely but it's also on epic for being that little like devil over the shoulder tempting them to do something they shouldn't be doing in the first place it leaves a bad taste and I think that the brand damage that epic has inflicted upon itself at this point is just too severe you know what I think was the real nail in the coffin for epic this year though Microsoft Microsoft are gearing up for the next generation and PC is a big part of their strategy if Tim Sweeney ran Xbox he'd shut down the Xbox ecosystem so that all the games were only available on Xbox storefronts and Xbox devices but that's not the future of gaming the future is multi device and multi-platform that's why Xbox are releasing almost all of their games on both steam and the Xbox storefront so gamers can choose where they want to buy it that's about a stark of contrast to epic as you can conjure up to sweeney claims to be motivated by a desire to breaks team's monopoly and give consumers a better more competitive market the nail in the coffin for epic is that this is already happening through Gog through Microsoft steam friendly approach through the new micro soft app through discord through subscription services through stadia and likely dozens of other platforms we don't even know about yet when you stand back and take all of this in it becomes clear that epic isn't only losing the battle they're fighting the wrong war as the unitary storefront they're trying to build will be a relic of the past in but a few short years look all I'm trying to say with all of this is epic games bad I just played through probably the best VR game on ps4 blood and truth and I just bought both the oculus rift s and the oculus quest I'm working on a video at the moment in my view VR is beginning to hit its stride as an interesting worthwhile platformer there still limits to the technology there's still a shortage of must play games but there's enough there that if you were to invest in VR you're probably gonna have some great experiences that you couldn't get anywhere else and you'll get your money's worth at the very least it's a platform worth talking about not so according to III 2019 of the hundreds of games showcased throughout the various press conferences but a single one of them was VR maybe I missed one but I watched every single press conference most of them in person and I didn't see any VR titles there most of this can be explained by the absence of Sony who have invested heavily in the psvr ecosystem to respectable success had they been there we would have no doubt seen at least something from them but in their absence it fell to the PC developers who chose to not deliver walking the floor of e3 you still saw plenty of smaller VR titles as well as a fairly large oculus booth as part of Facebook gaming but that was it and it really made me reflect on just how far VR has to go before it becomes a mainstream part of gaming because for every beat saber and Skyrim VR there are dozens or hundreds of pokey buggy nauseating VR titles that serve more as tech demos and actual products held even on the oculus store most of the stuff is still that like VR experience stuff we roll our eyes at it's a very very young platform and without the patronage of Sony to push them into the limelight it's easy to forget that it even exists at all the biggest blow that VR was dealt this year though is that Xbox did not mention it at all with their reveal of project Scarlett Xbox has always been very hesitant about investing in VR preferring the augmented reality approach through there lenz headset but there were rumors that they were reversing course on this for the next generation not so it would seem for now VR does not appear to be a focus for them while Sony have made very clear that VR is very much there to stay as part of the PlayStation ecosystem still I think this is the last year we won't see a strong VR presence some of the experiences I've had with VR have been incredible and the oculus quest is a complete game changer being a completely self-contained unit so you don't need to plug it into a PC or console it's like the Nintendo switch of VR and it does exactly what it says on the tin VR is really gonna rock people's world pretty soon I'm 90% sure of that but right now it's not there yet and III demonstrated that very clearly I was there when our Lord and Savior descended from up on high to grace us with his divine bonus CD Projekt RED cyberpunk 2077 the arrival of Keanu in cyberpunk 2077 felt like one of those astral convergences where like all the planets align and then the toilet water starts flowing backwards you're talking about a dude who is absolutely central to sci-fi and action cinema and has been over the past 20 years who also happens to be the most loved human of 2019 starring in the leading role of the defining sci-fi action game of this generation made by the most like beloved developer just full stop really except for maybe like the intend oh but that's about it his place in this game was just so right on every level and CD Projekt RED should be commended for pulling off what was probably the most exciting moment III has ever seen but Keanu wasn't the only celebrity to make an appearance in a game this year we had Forest Whitaker in fallen order you had that Jon Bernthal Punisher dude from Walking Dead with a he's in Ghost Recon break point that guy from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is making a TV show based on the life of Game Developers comedy didn't look very funny but hopefully will be the division confirmed the division movie was still being made stank Jake Gyllenhaal earlier we heard that Tom Holland will start as a young Nathan Drake in an upcoming Uncharted movie and he just starred in a commercial for Final Fantasy fort hey you don't need that sword man you're not the warrior of darkness yes I am look at my sword you're from West London that's the really nice part of London relax man Ubisoft have already set up a film and television studio Netflix are making a witch's series and a Zelda series shit is getting very real here's my spicy hot tape prediction as the Sun begins to set on the Marvel Comics universe expect video games to try and step up and fill that void video games house some of the most beloved franchises in entertainment some of them stretching back 30 years and almost none of them except Mortal Kombat have had an awesome movie or TV show to do them justice except more combat just imagine what Sony could do if it said its mind and its budget – an HBO style God of War series but we finally got that Metal Gear movie we all deserve that day is coming the games companies are gearing up for it and III 2019 was as clear indication as any that it's on the way there are few companies that can make grown-ass men do this using a little more than a golden jigsaw piece and Adobe looking bare Nintendo is one of those companies their unparalleled stable of IP their relentless ferocious commitment equality that consumer centricity and their endless ages charm as well and truly ensconced in Tendo deep into our hearts this year Nintendo continued doing what they've always done with a Nintendo directs just showed tons of gameplay from awesome games we'd love to play we saw Pokemon sword and shield Luigi's Mansion Link's Awakening astral chant which looks awesome by the way daemon ex machina and chaos of Hyrule which is actually out right now funnily enough all of this culminated in the reveal of a breath of the wild to sort of probably sequel to breath of the wild like the majora's master the Ocarina of Time it's so exciting to imagine what this team can do with this already phenomenal sandbox when they can just spend more time designing gameplay scenarios instead of building an entirely new world so I'm totally down for this in regards to the future it seems to me that Nintendo are the safest of all of the big three Xbox and Sony are both going to be competing with the latest graphics and cloud computing and streaming and subscription packages and all sorts of other technology buzzwords everything they do is gonna carry with a tremendous cost and tremendous risk and neither of them have anywhere near the sort of IP that Nintendo does look I love Kratos as much as the next guy but that dudes nothing compared to the IP powerhouse that is Mario or Luigi or waluigi for God's sake the next generation is gonna be a real 15-round knock them down beat them up fight between Microsoft and Sony but Nintendo don't have to worry about any of that even if their Hardware business completely collapses they'll still be a wildly successful publisher because nobody does one intern doe does as well as Nintendo does it and that's convenient because their hardware business is about to face an existential challenge the likes of which none of us have seen before what if everybody in the world could play Halo what everybody in the world could play Red Dead Redemption everybody in the world could play the games what would we have to do in order to make that possible in order to do that we believe we need to build a game streaming service we see game streaming is a great technology giving you access to the games that you want to play on the device that you want to play them all right hold you down votes I know everyone hates streaming and they think it's the devil but trust me when I tell you it's really not and if this exists as a choice on top of your local hardware you're actually really going to like this let me explain earlier in the week I sat down with Project X cloud which is Microsoft's cloud streaming platform similar to something like Google Stadium some dude handed me a controller with a phone mounted onto it and in that moment I was immediately playing Halo 5 60 FPS on a mobile phone yes there was a slight latency but it was so minor that I didn't even care I was just blown away that I was playing 60fps Halo in my hands the internet was a standard 130 down 30 up which I know is not standard in a lot of countries but it is standard in a lot of places and 5g is coming and it's coming soon Australia is the world's leader in shit internet and even we have 5g rolling out here soon so there's cause to be optimistic beyond the connection issue I know a lot of people have concerns about latency but I'll solve that problem in no time just this week id Software unveiled project Orion a painted and technology that they claimed significantly reduces latency when streaming games like this this tech isn't even out yet and it's already getting hacked and improved the impact of this technology cannot be overstated during e3 it was announced that The Witcher 3 was finally coming to Nintendo switch the whole adventure in the palm of your hand hands plural great awesome love it fantastic right a day later it was revealed that it would run at 540 P 1.5 for TP that is not good but even before this announcement the second the port was announced my first thought was why the hell would I want to play the downgraded switch port when I could stream it to my phone or my iPad playing it on a screen basically as large as the switches and with a more comfortable controller while enjoying 2k resolution and 60fps why would I ever want to play a switch port ever again when I can do that now I get it I get I get it flights train tunnels bad internet whatever I don't know all sorts of bullshit I know there are barriers but others barriers so significant that they'd prompt you to buy another dedicated handheld device next generation I don't think so I do not believe there will be a Nintendo switch to because this streaming technology makes it redundant in 95% of circumstances and that number will only go up each year Nintendo has some serious questions to ask about the future of their hardware business this tech also fundamentally changes the nature of the console landscape firstly console exclusives as we know that will cease to exist let's say you're a ps4 guy and you don't own an Xbox but you want to play Halo infinite no problem so long as your internet is good enough you'll be able to buy Xbox game paths for 15 bucks a month and stream halo infinite to whatever device you own TV computer tablet phone whatever you just have to put up with some latency but are you gonna tell me that you'd rather spend $400 on a new console to play one game no you will probably just put up with a little bit of latency and be glad that you could play it on your lunch break on your phone while you're at work we're talking about a console generation 3 of consoles and the technology is basically finished like you look at something like VR and you can immediately see that it's got so many years ahead of it before it reaches the future we're all imagining you pick up project games cloud and you can immediately feel that this tech is 95 percent the way there and the remaining 5% it's only a matter of time like I said I know ell everyone hates this stuff I know everyone's so skeptical about streaming my country is the worst internet on the fucking planet ok but I'm telling you man like just what I experienced over there there's no way this is not at least a big part of the future it's definitely happening and it really is playing perfectly into Xboxes hands ladies and gentlemen introducing max box one six years ago Microsoft dropped one of the biggest deuces in gaming history the Xbox one X reveal event Xbox watch TV TV TV TV TV TV watch TV Stevie TV a TV remote TV experience TV TV TV TV sports TV TV TV this event was a disaster of such epic proportions that it cost Xbox their massive unassailable lead over Sony that they secured during this 360 era Xbox one lost the console generation so comprehensively that it isn't even a question and it all started with this terrible terrible reveal event central to the failure of that event and the strategy behind it was the idea that your Xbox one X would do more than just play games it would allow you to watch TV because everyone still watches TV am i right guys I could record the TV you could play sports ball it could play the new Call of Duty it had a stupid camera thing that nobody wanted and you could yell things at it Xbox go home all of this gave the consumer choice and options to do everything but the one thing the Xbox is meant to do play video games this coupled with Microsoft's failure to invest in first party studios a ludicrously complicated approach to trading in old games and hardware specs that were worse than those offered by the ps4 really sealed the deal this generation was a lost one for both Microsoft and Xbox fans alike last year Phil Spencer got up on stage and made clear that the Xbox would not take this to feed lying down promising that its library of exclusives would be second to none in the coming generation then buying up half a dozen talented studios to make good on that promise we're already seeing the fruits of that strategy ninja Theory who had recently delivered the superb hell blade are now dishing up bleeding edge it's like overwatch only with more of a melee focus it's fucking cool it was legitimately the most fun thing I played at e3 check it out if you get a chance I also saw the outer worlds from obsidian now this isn't an Xbox exclusive but obsidian got bought by Xbox so their next title will be what I saw of outer worlds was so so good and I cannot wait to play it and everything else I'm sitting in puts out after that this year at e3 we're all hoping that Microsoft would show up with a big box and plunk it down the middle of the stage and say ball bitch graphics with an X Games 60 controller backwards-compatibility by this holidays 399 I drop that didn't happen instead we learned that the next Xbox doesn't have a final name and it won't be out until holiday 2020 we learned that it's aiming for 8k resolution which is just bullshit nonsense ignore that and we also learned they're aiming for 120 FPS which is actually doable but that's entirely up to the developers we're missing the name the box and the final specs but could I be edgy boy here and tell you that I really don't think these things matter at this point graphics aren't the be-all and end-all they used to be and this next generation won't be won by the highest number of rendered polygons on screen instead it's gonna be won by two things good games and the choice provided by services Xbox is already committed to making all of their exclusives available on PC and most of those through Steam as well as Xbox storefronts they've just launched the Xbox game pass for PC which offers an absolutely ridiculous amount of value for $15 a month other deal in gaming comes remotely close they've relaunched their Xbox PC app which will effectively bridge the gap between console and PC permanently they're going to launch Project X cloud giving you the freedom to play your games wherever the hell you want on whatever device you want you won't even need to own an Xbox to be able to be part of the Xbox ecosystem and play their exclusive games and not for nothing but they also have the only accessibility controller on the market making it easier for people with a disability to play games you may look at all the above and think that Xbox are repeating the mistakes of last generation by promising all this stuff that no one was really asking for but the key difference here is that all of this is about video games it's not about bullshit TV or sports or some gimmick camera it's about saying hey you over there PC gamer who's never even thought about buying a console we've got something for you I'm sure the next box is going to be plenty powerful but this range of services that Microsoft have outlined are the true competitive advantage that Microsoft will bring to the table this coming generation and it's all very smart as well because Sony cannot compete along the same lines Sony doesn't have hundreds of millions of PCs running Windows with an Xbox app automatically installed they don't have the ability to reach out to the PC gaming crowd the same way that Microsoft can nor can they offer an ecosystem beyond their own console Sony will be fine don't get me wrong this coming generation they'll be ok they're stable of developers and exclusive IP completely Dwarfs that of X boxes no question but right now I'm really drawn to Sony for its incredible library of exclusives and I'm equally drawn to Xbox for the range of services and choice it's promising me as a PC and console gamer I take away that I took from e3 2019 is that the console structure we've known and relied upon for some 40 years with a box that sits under the TV and we just buy games for it and upgrade it every six or seven years or whatever all that is about to be radically upended in ways we can't even predict yet streamed games Google entering the markets subscription services the end of console exclusives the blurring of the lines between console and PC gaming all of this is right on our doorstep and the battle between Sony and Microsoft will be fascinating to watch Xbox has fired the first shots now we wait to see what the ps5 has in store for us


we just had a torrential downpour as you can see water coming up underneath the trailer I'll tell you what for a little crappie just a ditch just to kind of see what's going on this sucker is moving a

another one over there I don't know what he is or she is probably little doe no it's a little buck to Angela for corner one two three four yep that's the first I've seen some little butcher in here what you see the ders huh you see the little birds what's this then it's drywall Thursday Thursday Thursday I'm finally getting around to putting up some drywall I'm doing the tub enclosure first and then I'm gonna start on this section right here behind the toilet you can see here I've got some odd two by fours kind of screwed into place and what that is is to give me a good screw in location for the drywall that I'm putting up this back wall here I couldn't I didn't have anything for the drywall to rest against so it gives me a kind of a backing plus a screw point instead of just it being a weak weak section of the drywall I had another one down here and another one down there on the bottom and then I'll have to do the same for the top but it's slowly coming along it's just I've been on the struggle bus last week you know the rain and some other things come just took the wind out of my sails so I'm trying to push through and get after it so I'd like to show you guys something about drywall real quick some of you all might not know about how you sit drywall and some of you all might not realize that there's a certain edge that you start with now when you buy a sheet of drywall this is I call it green board because it's like a mold resistance for bathrooms now when you lay drywall you don't lay it up and down where you got the four foot section on the floor going up it's not how you laid you lay it lengthwise like this now one edge of your drywall has got a bevel to it right here so what you do is when you take one piece of drywall and you set it on the floor you want your you want your seam in the middle of the wall so here's part of a bevel now I'll say this piece was going to go on top of it this beveled edge would rest on top of this edge and what that does is create a little ditch a little valley and that's where your drywall tape goes so you tape this seam and what that little divot does it allows you to have your tape put down to where there's not a bump and then it also gives you a little bit of room to throw your moat over the tape and to come and level it off and you've got a nice flat surface here a lot of people think a dry walled wall is perfectly flat and it's totally not the case a wall is it's got a curve to it but what they do is when they come and put their drywall mud down they mud it like instead of just mudding your tape line right here they bring the mud down here and then they it's kind of like doing bodywork what they do is they try to make that that seam where they join them together make it as wide and it's unnoticeable as possible that way what you're trying to not have light reflect off of where the boards come together because that shadow is what shows you the bump in the wall so if you watch a professional drywall er they don't use hardly any mud and there's not will they use mud but let me rephrase that there's hardly any sanding done and that's one way you can tell a novice trial waller is if you've got 40 tons of drywall dust everywhere because they're doing way too much sandy if you do it a wall right with drywall there's hardly any sanding that has be done at all so another thing is when you cut drywall a lot of people think you have to have a drywall salt and yeah you can use a drywall saw it's like a fine line this is mainly for like cutting holes like poking it in the ceiling and cutting out a square for like a register and a ceiling or a light fixture the don't you know a ceiling or has drywall in for cutting out stuff okay it's not for cutting sheets all that you can the man it doesn't make a lot of mess like I'll give you a little example when she might not be able to tell and I might not be able to hold it with one hand so say yeah I find that be able to do this is one hand see all that just that one cut imagine if you had to take this cut for a foot you would have a beach down here I've drawn to us and one thing drywall dust is excellent it is ruining a vacuum cleaner or even a shop bag if you don't have the right filter on it drywall drywall dust is horrible and it will go every place now what you do if you need to cut a piece of drywall all you need is something sharp like a razor blade okay and you want to say like I needed a piece that was 54 inches long so say this was 54 inches right here I'd make another 54 inch mark here and one on the bottle and get my straight edge okay get it straight and take a marker and draw a line straight line and get a razor start at the bottom you know stick it in the drywall dude if you can you don't have to go all the way through you're just trying to cut this paper and then cut all the way up that paper you might have to go up to two times three times and once you do as you get on the opposite side of the cut say you know I cut this side here so I bring the board out and i just take my knee and i just tap it and it's next and don't take a whole lot to cut drywall though you make a nice clean edge without the mess like this is all the mess of half so that's just my little tip and I learned that from trial and error doing my first bathroom in the other house I was cutting everything with a drywall saw or a circular saw and I would just make it so much mess of the dust then that's how you do it so I'm cutting this piece because I want to go on the top of this other piece I'm gonna sit on top of this one now I'm proud run a piece of drywall tape on the seen bit since I'm just using this as an extra sound barrier for the bedroom first they have somebody's in the bedroom and somebody's in a shower this right here will dead in a lot of the noise so I'm not real worried about you know mudding this but I am gonna screw it to the you know to the wall that's all that piece is and I'm cutting this piece out here for the back there's a little update on what I got Dillon a headache kindly call it quits early my friend Dani she stopped by I'm going to visit for a little while so that kind of curtailed any work but as you can see I'm starting to get the drywall up that makes some of y'all happy a lot of y'all beating that drum well you know I'm trying I'm one man I got to fix that mess so anyway here's the backside so this room is starting to say a lot cooler and like I said all this is this right here your drywall doesn't have to be perfect when it builds up the other sheet of drywall that goes this way will be covering this up and them to be drywall tape mud Yatta Yatta it like said this right here is just for sounding purposes this right here is an actual bathroom wall but likes adramal doesn't have to be perfect at all so there you go so anyway I just want to show this you guys and a Haunter make sure there's not a kitty in than easier it steps on the other day all nice den I was really kind of nervous of her but apparently she's okay because she likes to burrow and covers she's weird let's see if we can't find her really icky get got in there she sat in some place she's probably in her little kitty box hey do you get back there she is Oh kitty hat out anyways I want to call it quits for the day just don't have it in me to really get after but a little progress each day it's better than none what are you doing looking for the kitty cat I know York is your butt home so here's my two chicken breasts I've been thawing out all day and I put some let me show you the seasonings that I used I used the grill mates the Montreal chicken and then after that I put some Italian dressing on top of them and they've been sitting for a couple hours you know in the dressing kind of keeping it moist and I'm gonna take the chicken and put it on the grill so my little master forwards grill that I've had ever since I started my youtube channel still kicking but it's getting a little long in the tooth and the gas thing down here for the propane is starting to rest out you can see my top piece here is rusted out I had to kind of improvise getting some rest in the bottom so after today I think I'm gonna retire it as a propane grill I start using charcoal so it's been a good grill so now we're gonna see in the coming weeks how it does is maybe a little smoker or I'll just see how it works out but I don't know if I can get these replacement parts so I'm not even worried about it I just turn it into a charcoal let's let this thing cook a little while get hot get that great cleaned and bust out that chicken everything smells good trying to cook it slow they're not too slow see still raw on the inside it's getting there smells awesome fire damn just a skosh looking good and that's all it is folks just some grilled chicken some cauliflower peas and I made some improvised garlic bread here so that's about it there is it seemed to your parents DC's head back okay here's the bathroom I got some drywall finished on this main wall screwed up because I cut this top piece too short I don't know what I was smoking so I had to piece the end here and I'll have to go back and do some finagling when I go to do the drywall buddy and stuff so got this one finished I got this little section here done I'm just going to wait to do this end in this end when I get new drywall I've got some odd named pieces but I'm just gonna wait I'm kind of tired lazy Saturday I'll do that when I get the drywall for this wall which would be two more sheets I might get three sheets just to be safe for auden and other stuff you know around but I have to wait until I get my two inch pink rigid foam and I'm going to get a sheet of one-inch thick rigid foam that way I can fill this whole cavity with the equivalent of an ar-15 what I had in here before was an R 13 or 13 so I'll make the bathroom wall a little bit better on the installation and then I have to wait until I can figure out how I'm gonna make an entry door for this right here because you know once everything is dry walled up and finished I have to be able to have access back here so still trying to figure out what I need to do with that and you know I still happened to get drywall for the ceiling so let me recalculate that's probably one two I'll get four sheets of drywall this I think that should do me it's not I'll just get more so that's it for this video guys we can get this uploaded and chill after a while so I'll see you all later

MANUFACTURING GUILT – A Short Film About Mumia Abu-Jamal's Case

people really don't understand what the climate was in Philadelphia in the years before Mamiya was arrested because if they did they would look at his arrest and his trial in a different fashion in 1982 Philadelphia journalist Mumia abu-jamal was convicted of first degree murder in the killing of police officer Daniel Faulkner on the July 4th weekend he was sentenced to death in 2001 Federal Court Judge William Yan overturned abu-jamal death sentence as illegally imposed and unconstitutional yet abu-jamal remained on death row for more than ten years while the Philadelphia district attorney continued to pursue his execution in 2011 the DA's office conceded defeat and after 30 years on death row abu-jamal was transferred from solitary confinement and joined the general prison population where he continues his appeals Mumia abu-jamal has said numerous times my only crime that night is that I survived in fact the effort to legally execute a Boojum al has only recently ended but the first attempt to kill him may have been made on that fateful night of December 9th 1981 Abu Jamal was also critically wounded shot through the chest and found near the prone body of Daniel Faulkner and the evidence that convicted him for the murder well it doesn't exist it's been well established over the years that abuja miles trial was patently unjust for instance the Philadelphia DA trained prosecutors to exclude blacks from juries in abuja miles case 11 out of the 15 preemptory strikes were made to bar blacks from his jury what this short film will document is how countless due process violations began just moments after the shooting of Daniel Faulkner and Mumia abu-jamal when members of the Philadelphia Police Department began to manufacture abu-jamal is guilt and perhaps more importantly conceal his innocence in the culture wars that have punted Noumea the effigy back and forth across ideological fields of politics race and class the attempt has been made to diminish the relevance of abu-jamal as a journalist in 1981 but this man who was elected president of the Philadelphia chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists was already well-known throughout the city as a fiercely independent up incoming journalist in fact by the age of 15 the FBI was tracking the young writer for the Black Panther Party through their draconian and illegal program known as COINTELPRO not for violent behavior but because of his quote inclination to appear and speak at public gatherings also in 1981 he was well known to the Philadelphia Police Department as an outspoken journalist who reported on police corruption and brutality in particular with regard to the Philly PD s hostile relationship with a controversial move organization culminating in a year-long police siege of the move house that ended in 1978 with the shooting death of police officer James ramp nine members of move were charged with the murder and during his coverage of the trial abu-jamal strongly criticized the actions of the police and the prosecution including the implication that the officer was most likely killed by police crossfire the move trial concluded just a year and a half before abu-jamal and Faulkner were found shot on that fateful night and it was only four months from the federal trial of move leader John Africa whose acquittal on gun charges left the police and DA's office infuriated when they saw who they had this was number one I mean wow you know look what we don't ran into we got a panther and we're gonna kill this bad we're gonna kill this nigger here right in the early morning hours of December 9th 1981 police officer Daniel Faulkner pulls over a rundown blue Volkswagen Beetle in the bustling red-light district of Philadelphia at 3:51 a.m. Faulkner reports over his radio that he has stopped the car at 13th and Locust Street at the same time Mumia abu-jamal is parked in his cab just around the corner he fills out his log anticipating a new fare just as the clubs are closing he's moonlighting as a cab driver after his uncompromising approach to reporting began to cost him work as a journalist he had recently started carrying a registered 38 Charter Arms revolver during his late-night cab runs after having recently been robbed at gunpoint from the DA's office – abuja miles most ardent defenders all agree that abu Jamal's brother Billy cook who ran a street vendor stall nearby exited his Volkswagen and had an exchange with Faulkner but what happened next has been the subject of heated debate ever since what is certain is that the version put forth by the prosecution in conjunction with the Philadelphia Police Department at Abuja miles 1982 trial is a complete fabrication and a wilful fabrication at that after being denied his constitutional right to defend himself at his original trial and after heating legal advice not to testify at his appeals hearing in 1995 abu-jamal released a declaration in 2001 in which he details the events of that night I did not shoot police officer Daniel Faulkner I had nothing to do with the killing of officer Faulkner I am innocent I was filling out my log when I heard some shouting I glanced in my rearview mirror and saw a flashing dome light of a police cruiser this wasn't unusual I continued to fill out my trip sheet when I heard what sounded like gunshots I looked again into my rearview mirror and saw people running up and down Locust I recognized my brother standing in the street staggering and dizzy I immediately exited the cab and ran to his screen as I came across the street I saw a uniformed cop turns award me gun in hand saw a flesh and down to my knees now the prosecution claims that abou Jamal's brother Billy Cooke was alone in the Volkswagen officers James Forbes and Robert shoemaker testified at the 82 trial that they were the first officers to arrive on the scene and that they immediately found a Boojum Al's gun as well as Faulkner's gun inspector Alfonso Giordano would arrive three minutes later and take control of the scene as the ranking officer at pretrial hearings Giordano testified that abu-jamal confessed to the murder when Giordano asked him where his gun was and abu-jamal replied I dropped it beside the car after I shot him cab driver Robert Cobert testified he was parked just behind Falconer squad car witnessed the shooting and identified abu-jamal as the shooter prostitute Cynthia white also testified that she saw the shooting her testimony matched that of Robert Joubert's all of these claims most of which formed the foundation of the prosecution's case were manufactured let's first look at the claim that Billy Cook was alone in the Volkswagen after Faulkner radio that he stopped a car he followed with quote on second thought send me a wagon this request for backup clearly indicates that there was more than one person in the car then in 1995 Captain Edward D'Amato admitted that a driver's license permit for a man named Arnold Howard a business partner of kooks was found on Faulkner again strong evidence that there was more than one person in Billy Cook's Volkswagen in 1982 the police and prosecution illegally kept this evidence from abu-jamal and his defense attorney why were they suppressing this evidence of other potential suspects in the shooting of Daniel Faulkner now what about the immediate recovery of the weapons radio transmissions from the scene to Central Command over the next 15 minutes contradict the testimony of officers Forbes and shoemaker no officer reports immediately finding any weapons in fact nearly five minutes later officers on the scene report that Faulkner's gun is missing it was 14 minutes before it was reported that the suspects gun was recovered and that they had the doer in custody there is no report that abu-jamal confessed there is no report that a witness or witnesses identified anyone as the shooter prior to the arrival of the police mobile forensics unit freelance photographer Pedro Polikoff arrives moving freely through the crime scene and snapping off more than two dozen photos these photos show contrary to police regulations that the area was not properly secured to preserve evidence the photographs also show officer Forbes walking around carrying both guns in his bare hand this lack of regard for forensic evidence looks more like willful intent to manipulate a crime scene when you consider the following police reported no fingerprints on the guns no tests were done on abuja Mouse hands for gunpowder residue contrary to police regulations officer Forbes failed to immediately turn over the weapons to the mobile crime unit in fact the weapons were not turned over for two hours later the police falsely described the bullet from Faulkner's head wound as too damaged and deteriorated to do a comparison ballistics test with a bullet fired from a Boojum Al's gun but photographs of the bullet clearly show the identifying characteristics its twists the number of lands and grooves and the relative widths instead the prosecution claimed that the bullet was quote consistent with one fired from a Boojum Al's Charter Arms 38 revolver although police ballistics expert Anthony Paul admitted this is true of quote multiple millions of guns during appeals when abu-jamal and his legal team demanded independent testing to determine if the bullet was fired from a Boojum Al's gun their request was denied first by Judge Albert Sabo and then later by Federal Court Judge William young what all of this clearly illustrates is that in fact there is no physical evidence that abu-jamal shot Faulkner or that his gun was the murder weapon but what about eyewitness testimony what about Cynthia white a prostitute whose testimony was the linchpin to the prosecution's case several times after the shooting she was arrested only to be let go after she signed updated witness statements each time the story changed to make a stronger case against the Boojum all by the time the case went to trial her statement fit perfectly into the prosecution's case witnesses Pamela Jenkins and Avett Williams swore that white said she was scared for her life under police threats if she didn't testify as they wanted witness Veronica Jones blurted out on the witness stand at the 1982 trial that the police told her Cynthia white was given a deal to say that abu-jamal was the shooter Jones testified that the police threatened her to idea Boojum all as well what's more all the civilian witnesses both for the prosecution and the defense testified that they didn't see Cynthia white on the scene or only later after the police arrived and what about eyewitness Robert Cho Burt his testimony was arranged most likely by inspector Alfonso Giordano the official police photos as well as Paulo cops photos show Joubert's cab was not parked behind Faulkner squad car as claimed by Joe Burt and the prosecution in fact Joe Burt was driving illegally that night on a suspended license while on probation after being paid to throw a firebomb into a grade school during appeals Joubert admitted that in exchange for his testimony the prosecution said they would assist with his probation what's more Joubert later admitted that he was parked elsewhere and that his testimony was false the prosecution offered two more eyewitnesses Michael Scanlon and Albert Mann joltin both men said that they did not see the shooting Magellan only saw a man run across Locust Street Scanlon explicitly described the man he saw as having an afro hairstyle and not dreadlocks there are yet more troubling questions about what happened that night questions that continually underscore the innocence of Abu Jamal as well as the effort to frame him six witnesses including Robert Cobert made statements that one or more people fled the scene there is no evidence that investigators ever pursued this person or persons and according to these witnesses they were subjected to police threats coercion or offered favors by the prosecution William Singletary a local businessman said he was standing on a nearby street corner and witnessed the shootings immediately after he tried to give his statement to police that abu-jamal arrived after Faulkner was already shocked homicide detectives interrogated and threatened Singletary with bodily harm as well as the trashing of his business if he testified in favor of abu-jamal and then abou Jamal's brother Billy cook later swore that his business partner Ken Freeman was in the car with him and participated in the shooting of Faulkner cook said police threatened him with his life and that he too would be charged with Faulkner's murder if he testified for his brother at trial also factor in that eight people including two officers and two prosecution witnesses identified the shooter or persons near Faulkner as wearing a green army jacket but Billy Cook was wearing a blue Nehru style jacket and Abu Jamal was wearing a blue quilted ski jacket with wide red zigzag stripes in 1999 a career criminal and self-described hit man Arnold Beverly confessed he shot Faulkner in the head and that abu-jamal arrived after Faulkner was shot and had nothing to do with the shooting without providing any reason except that the confession was too late the Pennsylvania and federal courts have refused to even admit this confession into evidence now while the prosecution supposedly had four witnesses to the shooting none of their witnesses ever said they saw Abu Jamal get shot the prosecution argued that as Abu Jamal came across Locust Street he shot Faulkner in the back and as Faulkner turned and was falling down he pulled his gun in shot Abu Jamal and upwards shot through his chest while the prosecution tried to explain the clear downward trajectory of the bullet as a ricochet off his rib cage medical evidence is clear the bullet moved cleanly into abu-jamal chest through his lung and lodged near his liver in an uninterrupted downward line the prosecution's rendition of how Abu Jamal was shot is physically impossible but perhaps the most striking fabrication of the case presented to jurors in 1982 a falsehood that formed the emotional foundation of the prosecution's case and its success in securing a death sentence is the testimony of Cynthia white and Robert Hobart at Abu Jamal shot Faulkner execution style standing directly over him and unloading four rounds somehow three myths and only one strikes Faulkner in the face now what this claim actually shows is the clear intent by members of the Philadelphia Police Department and the District Attorney's Office to frame all for a crime he did not commit bullets from a 38 caliber weapon hitting the sidewalk would without any doubt leave divots as they tore into the concrete as shown by this photo analyzed by Robert Nelson an expert in photo enhancement and analysis at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory the concrete was as Nelson determined quote completely smooth this photograph proves that white and Cho Bert could not have seen as they claimed at trial anyone stand over Falkner and fire this clearly supports along with the other evidence of police intimidation that their testimony was arranged to support a patently false physically impossible rendition of the crime this execution-style account invented by the police and prosecution was a key part of their concerted effort not only to get a guilty verdict but the death penalty Mumia abu-jamal arrest for this murder was shocking to all who knew him or knew his work the headline of the Philadelphia Enquirer the next day was unusually sympathetic stating the suspect Jamal an eloquent activist not afraid to raise his voice Philadelphia Inquirer December 10th 1981 arrested and charged with murdering a police officer abu-jamal from the very outset acted on his innocence twice requesting a police lineup a direct challenge to prosecution witnesses to identify him he knew the real shooter or shooters must have fled the scene but the court denied his requests for a lineup just as they would deny his request for funds that would pay for defense investigations as well as expert ballistics witnesses what's been presented here is evidence of a concentrated effort to frame a man who had been the object of hatred among members of the Philadelphia Police Department for more than a decade though it was denied by police the admitting doctor at Jefferson Hospital where both abu-jamal and Faulkner were admitted noted injuries indicating that abu-jamal took a serious beating in addition to his critical gunshot wound supported by civilian witness statements abu-jamal himself recounts being punched kicked and rammed headfirst into a pole by officers arriving on the scene after being thrown into a police van inspector Alfonso Giordano assaults abu-jamal in the head with a police radio while hurling racial slurs a former commander of the Philadelphia Police Department stakeout cops Giordano was in charge of the raids on the offices of the Philadelphia chapter of the Black Panther Party in the late 1960s when abu-jamal was a prominent member jord on was also in charge of the year-long police siege of move in 1978 which typify dray shal tensions in the city at the time and resulted in the subsequent trial of the move nine when Giordano arrived on the crime scene to find the wounded journalist Abu Jamal he knew exactly who he was and from that moment on all police attention was directed to producing evidence of abou Jamal's guilt and nothing else as the prosecution built their case Giordano was the prime police witness during pretrial hearings and his account of Abuja Mao's confession was a cornerstone but without explanation he was pulled from the case and did not even testify a trial unknown to Abu Jamal and his defense Giordano as well as the commander and deputy commander of the Center City area along with the head of the Homicide Division in fact the entire chain of command and Naboo Jamal's prosecution were all under FBI investigation for corruption at the time of Faulkner's murder Giordano was removed from his post as a command inspector and relegated to desk duty after the FBI and the Justice Department apparently informed Philadelphia district attorney ed Rendell that Giordano was under investigation for corruption and his testimony at Abu Jamal's trial would undermine their case Giordano resigned from the police force at full retirement pay the first working day after Abu Jamal's conviction his previously publicized report that Abu Jamal confessed to shooting Faulkner was not even introduced at trial but the prosecution would still get their confession the DA's office convened a roundtable meeting and asked police witnesses did anybody hear his statement officers Gary Bell and Gary walk show along with Jefferson Hospital security guard Priscilla Durham suddenly report a second confession by Abu Jamal at this point this dramatic second confession is being remembered and reported more than two months after the night of the crime officer walk show assigned to Abu Jamal from the crime scene through his admittance to the hospital along with officer Bell and security guard Durham reportedly heard a Boojum al say I shot the motherfucker and I hope he dies but less than two hours after supposedly hearing this confession walk shel completed his report to homicide detectives with the statement that during his entire time guarding Abu Jamal quote the Negro male made no comments when walk Scholl was questioned during appeals why it took more than two months to report this supposed confession he explained that he was too distressed to remember and then later claimed to quote I only then realized it might have some meaning security guard Priscilla Durham who had aspirations to become a police officer herself later admitted to her stepbrother that she lied about hearing this confession and what about dr. Anthony Caleta who was with Abu Jamal from the time he arrived in the emergency room until he went into surgery and stated that he did not hear nor hear of any confession made by Abu Jamal in the hospital when abu-jamal attempted to call walk show to the stand during the 82 trial to counter the report of his confession he was told by the prosecution that the officer was on vacation and was denied even a phone call by judge Sabo to see if the officer could be reached when abu-jamal protested this blatantly unreasonable and unjust denial Sabo's response was your attorney and you goofed a comment of such cruelty is no surprise given the obvious bias and racism of judge Sabo who promised to a fellow judge in the presence of court reporter Terry Marr or Carter that quote I'm going to help them fry the nigger but while Sabo was infamous for his hostile behavior with defendants and was actually nicknamed the prosecutor in robes it was a corrupt Philadelphia police force empowered by the DEA that clearly manufactured abu-jamal guilt and suppressed evidence of his innocence beginning in those early morning hours of December 9th 1981 in 1998 from the bowels of death row Mumia abu-jamal made this statement a statement that reaches back into Philadelphia's unquestionably racist history and shines a bright light into the darkness even after their legal legerdemain I remain innocent courts cannot make an innocent man guilty any ruling founded on injustice as not justice the righteous fight for life liberty and for justice can only continue

RV Renovation Tips!

how's it going I'm Jarrod Gillis welcome to another all about RVs today we're going to be talking about the the tips some of the advice that we have for renovating your RV you guys had tons of questions from the tour that we did in the last video from that you guys had so many questions about just all those things we're gonna wrap that up to help you if you're wanting to renovate your RV here's some tips on how to do that let's start off with a couple of quick easy ones so the the wallpaper that we put in the backsplash area of the kitchen or the wallpaper that we used up in our bedroom kind of give it that weathered look those were real easy to install and do we just made sure that our wall was clean and and ready for the wallpaper it had a self-adhesive back to it so we just made sure we weren't sticking our hands on it getting it sticky we have heard of people having those peel off the wall we haven't had any issue with that and we've been going on for quite a while but if you were wanting to get some wallpaper like that I'll put a link down in the description maybe pin that first comment with links to some of that that wallpaper and anything else that we talked about in this video that you can buy on Amazon so also that map a lot of people have questions about that map and where we got it we just ordered it right off of Amazon again prime shipping easy to get we built a little frame around it that was just some wood that we had sitting around I think it was like a fence picket or something like that and we built a frame and and stuck it to the wall so that's where the mat came from now speaking of the walls a lot of people had questions on what was the process for painting what paint do you recommend how well has it worked out so our paint has worked out really well we haven't had issues with it getting scraped off or scratches or or anything like that it's adhered to the wall very well and so it's not like your typical home with drywall so what is that process so I would first start off saying that you want to clean it best you can so clean it with a product like TSP you just want to get the oil from the hands or anything from like the cooking area you want to get all that off so that your paint can adhere to the wall the best that it possibly can and then I recommend primering the walls before you put the paint color on there now we just put the primer right on the wallpaper put a thin coat of primer you don't want too soft and that wallpaper to where it wants to come off the walls so just a light coat of primer let that dry overnight fully dry so that you're not keeping a wet moist surface while you're doing it and then go ahead and roll on and paint your walls you're probably gonna have to do a couple of coats of paint a lot of people also asked what type of paint do you use and so I believe we just used Glidden I didn't need much and I wasn't too worried about it but I really like sherwin-williams paints I've painted a lot of exterior of homes when I was a contractor a lot of interior I've done a lot of painting and Sherwin Williams was just my favorite so that's usually the one that I leaned towards and usually end up picking but and here we just used a Glidden and it worked out great now let's talk about painting the cabinets because painting the cabinets is a little bit different in the process in which you do it so the prep that I add in here is I'm gonna grab some light sandpaper like a 320 even like a 400 and I'm just gonna scuff them up just a little bit I just want to edge into whatever finish is on there so that my primer is gonna bond best to the wood I'm not sanding it down to bare wood I'm just scuffing them up just a little bit to allow that bond to better happen so clean scuff clean primer paint now I recommend going to Sherwin Williams again get a good primer that will go well with the I think it's a pro classic it's almost like an enamel the paint that I recommend for going on here from Sherwin Williams it flows really well when you're painting your cabinets you don't want a bunch of stipple or brush marks or anything like that you just want a nice smooth clean look it's going to give you a hard finish to it so you don't have to clear coat over the top it's going to give you a cleanable surface and it's gonna flow well so those three things are why I recommend going with the the pro classic from Sherwin Williams but if you get a cheap paintbrush it's probably gonna leave streaks and lines a good paintbrush really goes a long ways and when I'm using a roller for some of the flatter larger areas I'm going to use something that's gonna give me a really smooth finish so I'll just use some of those those little 6-inch rollers and for some of the flat surfaces and a good Purdy brush and take care of your brush clean it out really well after you're done painting I see so many people with bad paintbrushes and bad paint jobs because they have a bad paintbrush and they don't clean it out well so small little slide tip but hey you guys are asking how these things come out the way they do just take care of your equipment and buy a good brush now moving on to flooring this might be one that is more of a do as I say not as I do because what I recommend is probably not what I ended up doing but what we ended up putting in here is just a click together laminate flooring it is one of the thinnest lightest laminate floors that I have found it's nothing super special is really inexpensive from Lowe's but I picked this one because of the height of it it was it was pretty thin and it matched exactly the height of the flooring that we pulled out well almost exactly the right height we we kept it just a little bit shorter so that we could put a piece of luan it's just like this piece of plywood that we'll put down on the floor when the slide comes in so it's the proper height and we have an area of the slide that would scratch the floor I think there's like a some kind of rivet or something underneath there that I can't quite get to to file to smooth out but it would scratch the floor as it comes in so we just stick a piece of luan right there the slide slides right up on the luan and then it goes right back out and it just helps protect our floor when we're driving when we pull it in when we pull it out what I would more than likely recommend for people putting in flooring in their RV is probably like a vinyl product like a vinyl tile that you can put in there I say vinyl tile it's it's like a vinyl plank is what it is so usually that's going to be lighter it's going to be easier you could bring in the like the sheet good of it but if you've never done that before it can be difficult to put in the vinyl planks are usually good for weight they're good for durability and they're easier to install and they're they work really well for water and they come in all kinds of different things you can have them look like tile you can have them look like wood there's some really nice ones out there so check out the the vinyl planks but before we move on from flooring let's talk about that transition strip because we had a lot of questions about how I made that transition strip from the slide to the main floor in the RV so I think I think I have a piece left over from when we did that this here is the one of the test pieces that I had had made it's just I just took a 2×4 and because it's almost it was a little bit wider then that gap was and then I just put it through the the saw we had a table saw and so I cut this side and then I cut that side at the different heights because there was a little bit of a difference in the height between the two and then I sloped this side a little bit and then I also sloped this side so it was a lot of different cuts this was a cut through the table saw this was a cut through the table saw and I ended up angling that just a little bit and then this was a cut through the table saw so it had to pass this through quite a few times it was just one 2×4 and I used one side for the left side and then the bottom side for the right side it worked out pretty well it was pretty cheap I mean how cheap is a 2×4 and it's just pine which the floor of mimics pine so it worked well found a stain that went along with it and then we clear coated it so that way it's protected and that was our solution for covering that gap between the slide and the main floor we also had a lot of questions about weight now the floor was probably one of the heaviest things we put in here it's not a ton of flooring but it does add up so we still have more weight that we could add to this trailer not that we're trying to add weight but it's a toy hauler so it's got a really strong frame and it's meant to drive a vehicle in the back of it and so we're actually still underweight in the trailer and weight is a concern when you're wanting to renovate your RV my recommendation would be to consider weight and everything that you change if you're pulling something out and you're putting something back in consider the weight is adding weight how much weight is it weighing less you might even be saving weight on some of the things you did which we'll be talking about the dinette in a second which I think is lighter than the original dinette that was in here so consider weight on your your flooring and the different things that you build and what you're building your products out of but now let's talk about the dinette because the dinette is something that really matches our style a whole lot more than what was there originally when we pulled out let's just talk about the benches we pulled out those benches first they were made out of particle board which is somewhat heavier we built these benches out of pine I know that's not the best like woodworking wood out there but the Doug Fir pine looks good for what we were going for and it doesn't weigh a ton so these benches they're pretty light we can move them out move them in move them around we also had questions about do those benches scratch the floor so the benches we did a lot of sanding on them and a lot of refining when we put them in and so the the bottoms that they're they don't scratch the floor when you slide it or when we drive if it moves around a little bit we're not concerned about it scratching the floor the issue is if you get sand in here and if you get sand underneath anything and you get a hard surface pushing it into the floor you're gonna cause a scratch or some kind of a blemish into the floor so what we do is we just try and keep the floors clean we keep the floors clean we haven't had any scratches and it hasn't really been a big issue now the table we built out of the same Doug firs that we did the the benches out of and they they match that way that they match same stain same clear coat and all that so we put these together we used like a biscuit joint in between three different sheets of to buy wood so we put those together we even did some pocket screws underneath there to hold that all together I put a kerf underneath each end of the table so I took a saw blade and I I cut through just a portion of the table and then I put angle metal up inside that table so that it will keep it straight so it added some strength going laterally across the table and it's just on the same hardware that we had in this area now this table might look heavier than the one that was in here before but actually particle board is some of the heaviest wood it seems like you can put a rig like this using this Doug Fir it's actually lighter than the table was before as far as is the weight of it so switching out the table was good on weight switching out the benches was good on weight so some of those things saved us weight to offset the weight of say the floor questions we had whoa Oh the water filter a lot of people asked about the water filter cuz I just brushed over that in the tour and we ended up using an RO water filter I've had a lot of experience in the past with those I just prefer the RO system it works silently in the background to fill up that storage of water we have a couple gallon pressure tank that's underneath the sink and that will fill up when we're connected to city water if we need to fill up water jugs because we're going out boondocking we just fill up those those water jugs so if you're interested in the same ro filter that we have just check the link in the description I know some people are concerned that the RO actually takes out too much stuff out of your water but if you have a well-balanced diet and you're making sure you're getting all your vitamins and minerals and all that through your diet I think the RO is a great way to really filter that water when you're going to different municipalities even RV parks have different well water you're able to filter that and have a safe drinking system I almost forgot because it wasn't kind of the main part of the tour but we have a questions about the exterior paint and I've always been a little reluctant to share this one with you because I wasn't sure how the exterior paint was going to hold up so let's take a look at that so when we repainted the rig one of the biggest things that when we did it we didn't really have any money so I did it the most cost-effective way that I can find and that was the rust-oleum $50 paint job and so I don't really shared how we did it and all that because I wasn't I wasn't positive on how long it was going to last we're going to years on this so it's doing well so far but I know that's not like the full length of how long I hope that it goes I wasn't sure how the look of it was gonna be in the beginning where we're pleased with it not perfect but we're definitely pleased with it it's an improvement for what we did and like I said it was called the rust-oleum $50 paint job and what's involved in that is you get professional rust-oleum paint that's what it's called the professional rust Oleum paint and you mix it 50/50 with mineral spirits and you you hold it on you actually roll the finish on to your RV and that was what makes up the rust-oleum $50 paint job because you can like paint your car with with 50 bucks and people have done it and they've had some great results so you can see the results that we've had here so if I was going to recommend somebody doing this or give somebody tips I would say the key to getting it to how you would like it is prep work prep work is going to be key in all of that and it will be a ton of work pulling off all those decals for us it was extremely difficult of course we ended up doing this kind of in the colder months which helped us in the painting did not help us in pulling off the decals it took a lot of labour to get those decals off and then I roughed up the surface with that that wet sandpaper kind of give it something to bond to and then I put a few coats of the the color on so we just did white and then we painted on our decals so I I put three stripes on each side that were their existing I kind of marked out where they were originally so I didn't have to try and generate or fabricate my my own kind of a design but we just kept a few stripes on each side and we mask those off with tape we we painted over them and just use the rest'll to hem gray and they've been holding up well so if you're crazy enough to try something like this to paint your RV another tip I would give you is when you're rolling it you want very moderate temperatures you don't want it freezing cold and you definitely don't want it hot warm or in the Sun because when you're you're going and you're rolling you want to roll that wet edge all the way through you don't want to have a dry edge that you're coming back up so a nice smooth roller that you can just work very quickly across the RV because you're gonna roll it on is gonna create a few bubbles and then you're just gonna come back hit it to knock those bubbles down so you don't get any kind of weird drips or runs or anything like that it's you really want to practice it before you start doing it on your rig because I ended up having to do the the nose of it twice because I hated the look of it getting it down to smooth again and rolling it on properly in a good temperature really made a big improvement and and doing the front again you can see you can see this shine you could probably see some of the ripples in there but I'm much happier with it than what we had originally well I think that's gonna do it for today so remember as always get out there and enjoy your RV so if you like this video give us a thumbs up if you haven't
