How exciting!!! Can't wait to see your progress. Have you posted pictures of the interior in other posts? I'd love to see them! I hope we can get ours repainted in the next year or two. What a beautiful trailer!

Spent three day weekend working none stop. All body work complete and primed. It will be Saturday before I can get back to work on the Argosy. I did not have camera so no picture update.

The inside was in really great shape. We cleaned and put in new floor. That is all we did to inside.

Nice.
What paints are you using. I guess what manufacturer? There is a lot of discussion about bonding ability or different paints. When I went to my local auto paint supplier they tried to educate me a little, but as I am fairly untrainable most of what they said fell on deaf ears. So I went to one of my clients (a paint store) and got him to order in something he thought would work well. It didnt. My undercoat was OK (from the auto shop) but the top coat......... a disaster. So I will be removing that and going back to the auto store and listening a bit harder, paying quite a bit more and hopefully doing it right.

I cannot take credit for paint job. I am just the helper. I have a good friend who is a paint and body man.
