paint still holding up. even in our 32 days straight of 100+ temps in texas!

P.S., I did the same technique as Hampstead38 minus the final polycrylic. I was concerned about that finish yellowing over time. My interior is bright white.

Second reno, I decided to experiment with removing the paint and exposing the original vinyl. Many hours of citrus stripper and scraping later, I was once again prepping the walls (IIRC, around 220 grit), applying a coat of Kilz, and re-applying the off-white. We've had our Safari now for almost 6 years, with no issues with peeling or bleed-through. All of our products were latex. Your mileage may vary.
Hi, I read your post with interest. We have a 64 Globetrotter that has been painted in a 'rag roll' type of style over the original vinyl. Am I correct in assuming you gave up on stripping the paint back to the vinyl and just painted over the paint again? Thanks, Angela in NZ

I have explained it more thoroughly on my blog.

Hi Lucy,

We just purchased the BIN per your recommendations to paint our interior. Did you paint overtop of the all of the "metal" trim throughout, or did you cut in around that? I have yet to see a remodel that appears as though the metal trim was NOT painted over, but I just wanted to be sure before we paint. I'm a bit concerned about adhesion to the "metal" and the durability as most of this trim is on edges, corners, etc that will get much more wear and tear.

Thanks in advance!

Primer and paint questions

I have problems with fumes and so forth and wanting to try using Kilz Premium primer, which is latex. Has anyone used that and if so what were your results? I really don't want to use anything oil based if I don't have to. I would then like to use a good latex on top suggestions? thanks
