Hi Dave
Sorry to hear you won't be done this summer. We are really pushing to be done by August. We ordered the stove and fridge today. The couch is going in tonight. Can't wait to see your final result. Keep at it and best of luck!

We did glue ours down. I hope we don't regret it later. I almost regret it now! My husband used my kitchen rolling pin to get the air pockets out. Now it is full of aluminum oxide. That stuff is everywhere!!!

Hi Jeremy
The interior skins (on a 1967 trailer) shine up just like the exterior skins. It is very hard on back and arms. You are pushing up on the polisher instead of pushing against or down.

It is the same 3 step process to shine them up plus striping the vinyl. We used super striper to remove the vinyl (after we removed them). I can supply more details if you want to attempt it.

We stripped our vinyl off using Jasco followed by Klean Strip paint stripper but there are still some stubborn adhesive areas that are proving quite difficult. Wondering if your Super stripper would work on that.

Hi Jeremy according to my husband, just keep adding stripper until they are clean. He had to go over some spots 3 times or more.

Jasco and Clean strip is probably stronger than what we used. Super striper was the best available to us in Canada. You can try covering the area where you applying the stipper with aluminum foil. This technique was hit and miss on effectiveness but it can't hurt to try

Bathroom paint is finished

The bathroom looks like new. My husband sprayed the last pieces yesterday. It looks pretty good! I wish it were a bit more blue but the paint and finish looks great. Can't wait to install everything in the trailer

I wish I had spray painting skills like that. I had to hire mine out. They turned out just fine.

You asked about what I used on my shower walls to repel water. I purchased some FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) at a big box store. It is thin stuff at about 1/16 inch thick. It is glued to a backing wall like plywood with a special FRP adhesive. It comes in various shapes and colors. Folks use the stuff when making a new shower stall in the home. Here is a photo of a shower stall I made in my last Airstream project. Maybe this stuff would work for you.

Hi David
Thanks for your reply. In the end we have decided to reuse the old laminate. It is still in good shape.

Thank you but in the end we ended up repainting the lime green. It was clashing with the green a bit too much for my liking.

The dance (2 steps forward , 2 steps back)

Everything is looking like it is progressing fast. We have a partial bathroom done. We repainted the medicine cabinet. I loved the lime green but it didn't go well with the mint green that my husband painted. The paint was supposed to be more of a Tiffany blue but instead ended up more "minty grey". Hubby also picked up wrong bathroom drain so off to the store we go! Then he discovered that his plan to run the pex plumming behind the wall won't work because he forgot about the sliding door. I came into the trailer and saw a lot of head scratching lol! Here are a few pics

I wonder what that white material is that you are using as a template for another bulkhead wall? I'm making a new bulkhead wall for behind the tub, and along the pocket door. I'm having trouble with mine. More head scratching. And yes, sink and tub drain assemblies come in all shapes and sizes. I had trouble finding the ones I needed.

There are several "do overs" in our Airstream renovations. For me, it is lack of experience and also lack of a detailed plan. But eventually, it all comes together.

Hi David
The white material for the template is actually the original laminate. My camera phone doesn't pick up the patern. Here is a closer look and the new "character mark" my husband made while removing removing it from the original wood.

Cabinetry has begun!

It has been a while since I posted. The bathroom is 90% done( we are waiting for the toilet that we have on order.) We also need to reinstall the doors and shelves.

The wheel wells have been covered and we now have a working pocket door. It still needs some paint. It will be a temporary fix until my husband can make another(prettier) door. I am really happy that I convinced him to sand and reuse the old wood trim!

The end cap has been painted. I love the yellow!
