I ordered Olympic Rivets a few months ago, for 'just in case'. Set them to the side (meaning, I lost them). Completing roof painting project required Olympic Rivets, but no where to be found, lol.
So, able to find rivets today at lunch, by chance. NICE that daylight saving is here, I might be able to paint this weekend if I can get Kool-O-Matic replaced with Fantastic Fan.
In case you didn't know when installing the Olympic rivets don't forget to dip them in Vulkem. Whoever installed the Olympic rivets on my Argosy didn't do that and I can see water weeping in through the rivets. If I hadn't had the interior skin off while it was raining I wouldn't have noticed the water oozing through the rivets.
The drivers side cockpit window has been removed at some point and replaced using Olympic rivets so I now have to remove every rivet and install new ones coating them with Vulkem in the process

After getting the bathroom primed so I could install the flexible wall tile, I discovered that the off-white sink was a bit much.
Went looking underneath to see if I couldn't get the vanity top removed, so I could take it as a template for a replacement with cultured marble. After finding out what that was gonna cost, decided that maybe I should just try some of the 'marble' paint.
It arrived today, so add another project to Airstream to-do list. After this Thursday, I don't go back to work until April 22nd, so maybe I can check off some of those 'to-do' items.
THE best part of owning an Airstream....the beautiful sounds when working inside, while it's raining outside!
I love that sound as well… until it's soon followed by the sound of it raining inside.
Time to pull off those roof a/c units for a look/see…. or move to Arizona.
So while we're on the subject….. Is there any way for water to leak through the roof units other than by getting past the point where they're sealed to the roof?
This is assuming that the moho is stationary, on level ground, not subjected to a driving wind, and that the a/c units are not operating (just to exclude the possibility of condensation being a factor). Any thoughts are welcomed.
……...Then we can talk about this persistent leak on my house roof.
