68 0verlander – External Skin Repairs

June 17, 2014 / Overlander 2, Project Updates /

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.2014-05-27 12.11.14 2014-05-27 13.39.21

68 Overlander – Skin Insulation

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. 2014-06-04 15.30.32

68 Overlander – Polishing stage 1

June 10, 2014 / Overlander 2, Project Updates /

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!

68 Overlander – Stripping the clear coat

June 7, 2014 / Overlander 2, Project Updates /

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.
