There were several holes left by the removal of the old furnace and water heater. I have patched each hole with matching aluminium. Once the new rivets are ground down and the patch polished the result is quite pleasing and I think reveals some of the history of this airstream.
The insulation we are fitting is a multi-layer foil which is glued to the inside of the skin and carefully sealed around all edges to eliminate any condensation problems.
With the chassis repaired, cleaned and painted the insulation can be fitted. I am using 25mm cellotex fitted between the chassis rails with the edges taped to protect the top of the chassis from any water trapped under the floor.
Here you can see the insulated tub in the new rear chassis which houses the grey water tank
The new flooring being fitted is 18mm phelonic plywood. Waterproof and very tough.
Removing the clear coat has revealed a very clean skin, largely protected from oxidisation. The first stage polish, using a course polish and a stitched mop generates a deep shine – and a lot of black muck!
Before the skin can be polished the old clear coat lacquer will need to be removed. I am using a water based paint stripper which is applied as a gel and after allowing time to react is removed with a pressure washer. This is a environmentally friendly product so the residue is harmless.
