We’re not yet close enough to get it painted. But since getting the top sealed…we haven’t washed it. We’ve had a few smaller showers right after sealing it; and checked for leaks then.
We’ve got no leaks! BIG EMPHATIC YEAH!!!!
The front panel under the windows will hopefully be replaced this next weekend. He is going this week with his brother to get the sheet metal to replace it. It’s the worse panel on the entire camper.
Dented, torn, past the point of repairs and no amount of LIPSTICK will make it look any better.
After washing—and getting the dirt and moss, yes! moss had started growing on it before we started the installation of work… anway, with all the debris washed away, we’re able to see the paint a little better.
It looks as if we may be able to remove the worst of it with a POWER WASHER. The paint is very dry and scaly. A lot of it came off with our brass nozzle. I think if we use a pressure sprayer—paint removal should go pretty easily.
This past weekend, we hit a few yard sales in our area, and found a small, door knob, still new and in the box. It doesn’t protrude like the average household door knobs. The keys were included. Sorry, it’s a little blurry, but you get the idea!
** edited to say: I grabbed this from the garbage and snapped a picture. Apparently, NOT brushed nickle; instead it's Stainless Steel Finish. I bought it at a yard sale... but it came from Dollar General. It is the perfect size.
I like it! It will look so much better after the whole thing is painted.
Little baby steps.
It’s coming along!
