Painting the interior

A fellow Airstreamer asked me to share. Maybe the information will help someone out.

Looks great! Did you strip the vinyl cover off the inner skins or paint over it? Also, what did you use to patch your skins? We have tons of screw holes in our '85 MH290 that I would like to fill before we start painting but I can't decide the best way to do the repairs.

fragiant,

Thanks!

We patched large holes with inner skin aluminum and cover areas that had lots of screw and rivets holes with Aluminum Trim 24" colored in almond. This is what contractors use when they are installing siding on homes. It's very thin but when you install it over the original inner skin it lays nicely.

Then we primed and painted all the walls. We didn't remove the vinyl. The raw aluminum you see in the end cap I installed because our original end cap was busted.

Looks nice!

Is that an interior end cap kit from Colin Hyde?
