Spraying the end caps: http://youtu.be/YZLO72FJbY8
A short clip of the spaying pattern...but off to the hardware store now, as you can see I ran out of paint.
Now I know, 2.5 cans needed per end cap ;-)

I am using Dover white, honestly it is a little lighter than what I would like, it is probably two shades lighter than whatever colour I used in the bathroom 5 years ago. The next shade I can find on the shelves here is almond which is to dark for the white vinyl walls. I searched far and wide for an in between color to no avail so it will do :-) Once I get the newly painted tambours and the speakers back in I am sure it will be less bright

Time to fill the previous owners hole collection. I waited to the last coat to ensure that if the filler reacted with the paint it would still look okay underneath. It would suck to go to wash it in a few months and have the edges of the fill possibly roll up showing the old banana yellow. I used Dap and filled only the hole. I washed the perimeter to it would blend in better.. soap and water clean up. Finally the last coat is sprayed on, after the usual prep work of course.

What did you use to fill in the holes? Going to do the end caps and bathroom in our trailer this winter looking for ideas.

Hi handy man, I used white dap acyrilic latex. I know it's good for outdoors. It's used to seal exterior house windows around here so I know it lasts. Plus it has flexibility so it will take the shifting a trailer goes through while in travel.

Hey piggy bank, if you have the vinyl walls in your trailer you have to try the magic eraser on them, the results are stunning. I've been using them for years on everything. I just did a test swatch of cleaners with cloths versus cleaners with magic erasers in my newer ugly water damaged trailer. They are amazing! I love how much you can see the difference of how gross it was where the painters tape was removed....

Right but back to the end caps, final coat done and I reinstalled the tambour and speakers. Note to others don' the lose your speakers they are an exact fit to the contour, there is a right side up and a wrong side up, and which side you install them on matters.
I removed all the tape protecting areas and knobs I didn't want sprayed and gave the edge of the cigarette lighter a polishing with 000 steel, note that the krylon finish held up to the steel wool just fine☺

Took the time to chisel off all the trim pieces around the windows that were so weathered and damaged they were not worth painting. A finished taping off and painting the ones that were okay. Way more attractive now !

Re installed the drapery rod, ALWAYS remember you are dealing with 40 year old plastic. Do NOT use power tools you will blow out the plastic and start cracking. Use hand tools and only go finger tip tight
