Started repairs

Well the renovation process has already begun. The trailor needs a little more work than I had hoped but not as much as one would expect from a thirtytwo year old trailor. I unrolled the awning and it was nasty, nice green and black mold and dirt. I cleaned it with a brush and some RV awning cleaner I found at Wallyworld and it looks 300% better. I also started sanding the spots where paint had chipped away as well as the areas the PO had "fixed", ugaaaaly. For some reason the PO had used a silicon caulk around the marker/running lights(several different types of lights, I bought all new bulls eye lights) and around/along the seams in some places. The PO also painted around the marker lights where he had done "repairs" and the paint is not close at all. I found an almost exact match to paint over all of these spots and the tops of the end caps, it won't be professional but it will look a whole lot better until my Dad and I can paint the whole trailor. I am going out to take some pictures before I finish the repairs so I can have a before and after. I wish I had taken pic's of the awning before I cleaned it, oh well. I'll post some pic's when I figure out or someone tells me how to post them on this sight. Later.

photos are always welcome. Good luck and keep posting! All us vintage owners take an interest, even if there are no comments. (even those of us who don't understand "Argosy" and what the real differences are.
