im a sever newb. please pardon my ignorance. im wondering if we are talking about inner panels? i have a 77 argosy. 29ft.the outter shell is in pretty decent shape good enough for me, assuming these prices are in reference to the outside...?
the inner panels arent in too bad of shape (will post pics soon)
but i have a big ambition to completely replace everything inside. being weight and space conscious.
also not a millionaire, or much of a thousandaire but will be devoting all i have to the project as i plan on making it a home/studio. (i do know over time to complete the project i will be unloading thousands. not afraid, just cautious) my question is; am i dreaming of having a reasonable budget and having a great job done on getting the inner panels replaced? is there something i can do to restore/paint/strip??? its just grimey and many random screw and rivet holes. i just think its hideous and i also want to re insulate and reseal everything. have a lot of handy friends and im trying to learn as i go but i would like to leave the panels to the pros.. just curious as to what my options are for a flawless interior (panel wise) and not be wasting tons of cash...
hopeful but overwhelmed..
btw. if theres anyone around nashville that has an interest in helping a young dumb optimistic fool with a big dream, could use all the help i can get and would exchange labour for knowledge.
long shot; i am always looking for WVO. will drive far for large amounts..

My best suggestion is to pop rivit any unused holes. I cannot think of any way to fill them that will be truly flush at any reasonable cost. Digging out inner panels sounds pretty tough to me. I would call the factory though and ask Chris Burch.

YOu might be able to get countersink pop rivits too.

Good luck!
