We'll be driving to Colaws in the next couple of weeks. I'll give it a llook see.

Looked everywhere for water based contact cement today. Finally found a place that will order it for me....we'll see. Moved on to veneering the walls with aluminum flashing, we'll see what that looks like in a few days......

Thanks as always,
Ron

The oldest thing at Colaws is a '79.

Well I took the plunge.

I rented a heat gun today, and the veneer came right off. Unfortunately, I decided to go one step further, and see how easily the old veneer came off. It was a bit harder, and I ended up with a much better surface to re-veneer. (what a waist of $68.). But the ends are super glued, and won't come off. I was able to get one little section off. So, I'm going to try sanding down the sides, at least to a more even area, so I can go right over what's still stuck on.

Word to the wise....Use gloves. Mine, like all of the other tools I own, are over in the A/S. So I went at it 'naked' . We now have blood and sweat. All that's left is tears, which I hope we DO NOT shead.

I'll keep you all posted.

I actually, finaly, found water based contact cement today, but since the solvent based didn't seem to be the problem, I may just stick with it.

Thanks guys!!!
